HoleStone 07 by DonSimpson HoleStone 07 by DonSimpson
Pendant carved from a black stream pebble. 1-5/8 inches wide, 3/8 inch thick. Front and back views.

Lots of holes, some shallow, some going into the complex central chamber hollowed out through the holes. The cord hole at the top goes through the stone but does not connect to the central chamber.

This stone is very dark, and making the scan look light enough to show the details has produced some weird effects in the look of the top part of the stone.

This was done with diamond tools rotated by a Foredom flex-shaft machine. I was inspired by stones from one of the local beaches, that are bored out by some living creature (the stone there is very soft -- for stone, that is). The beach stones are large and brittle, though, so I've made some small versions in hard stone.

Thank you.

No nightmare; more like an interesting puzzle.

The stone is fairly hard, but not as hard as granite.
