Preseli Bluestone is an extremely hard stone with an unpredictable compressed crystalline interior structure that can be riddled with ferrous oxide flaws. It has to be one of the more difficult and frustrating materials to work with. No two pieces are the same, a bit like beings, which of course is also what draws me to this wonderful stone.
Preseli Bluestone can range in colour from pale greyish to blueish to green. When
polished it can have an intricate, almost scale-
I suppose a lot depends on how you look at things though doesn't it.
Apologies to anyone who has had to wait for items to appear on the Lost Stones web
site or has waited for something special I'm making to order for them, but there
is only me on the making side of things. From selecting the right piece of stone
from our land through to the final polish, I do the lot -
For those that asked -
All the stone I use comes from our own land and contrary to some outlandish statements is not, and never has been, supplied by anyone else.
Why does someone else maybe choose totally different ones?
Is the stone calling to you personally?
Is it a lost stone looking for a home?
I suppose it really does depend on how you look at these things doesn't it?
MY WORKSHOP -
Thank you for your interest in my work and I hope you find the right piece for you, if not please ask us.
When you walk on a beach of stones why do you feel drawn to pick up certain stones and put them in your pocket?
