Take a class! Learn to make brilliant mandala painted stones at my kitchen table. Call me to schedule a date and time. Bring a friend and enjoy creating together! Two hours, $40/person, all supplies included. (515) 250-7929. 

From the Oregon Coast, ​​​​I select each smooth stone, wrap them with wool fiber, then shrink the wool around the stone by hand, and embroider them with bright colors and stitches. With the stone inside and the wool outside they have satisfying weight and warmth. These stones are generally 2” x 2 1/2” and begin at $25. Click on my Shop link to see what stones are available.
