Stone with Holes 03 by DonSimpson Stone with Holes 03 by DonSimpson
A pendant made from a black beach pebble, with nine holes in the front and sides connecting to the hollowed-out center, plus a hole for the ring at the top. About one inch high.

Another in my series exploring the possibilities of stones with holes. It looks a lot better in real life, as the scan has exaggerated all the little imperfections of the surface.

That seems like a good thing to me. Send me a note if you need any technical info.

Those are a good start, keep at it. I use diamond tools and cut under water to keep them from wearing out too fast (and a flex-shaft so I don't splash water into the motor). Also, I think it helps the look to bevel the holes a bit.

Indeed. I used to carve small moons from balls of plastic resin I cast in the shells of burnt-out light bulbs. I don't have any photos of those, though.
