Take a stone painting class! Learn to paint brilliantly dotted mandala stones. I'll come to your home, conference room, winery, plant nursery (...you get the picture...) to teach the class, bringing all the supplies needed for each person to paint their soothing stone. Call me to schedule a date and time for you and your friends! Two hours, $40/person, all supplies included. (515) 250-7929. 

​​​​​Embroidered Stones: After selecting each smooth stone, I wrap them with wool fiber, hand shrink the wool around the stone, 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 $35. Click here to see what stones are available.

Heart Stone: Little gift of love. And comfort. And thanks. A single small flat stone handpainted with colorful dots of acrylic paint, approximately 1 to 1.5" across. Expect slight variations as each stone is unique! $15 each. Click here to order.
