LORENA BABCOCK MOORE: Geologist
Handmade STONE BEADS
Carved from pebbles collected in southern Arizona, mostly from the Empire and Santa Rita Mountains.
All cutting, drilling, grinding, sanding, and polishing are done by hand, one bead at a time.
These are volcanic, intrusive, or contact metamorphic rocks. A few are agate or petrified wood.
Some are common. Others have unusual minerals or complicated geologic history.
None are used for commercially produced beads.
