|Cape May Lantern|
I call it the Cape May Lantern because I make them when I am down the shore, in Cape May County, and I only use white pebbles collected from the Cape May Sunset Beach.
Sunset Beach in cape May is where they find the "Cape May Diamonds" They are much like these white ones but a bit more clear and when polished and cut they shine like a diamond and make gorgeous pieces of jewelery.
I might start also collecting the peach color pebbles but for now, I have a bit of obsession for only the white ones. Some come with a hint of grey, and some with a hint or vein of sandy beige.
You can dangle them from tree limbs, or just set them on your deck.
These come in handy when we have power failures, which we seem to have a lot of when the heat is on, and everyone is burning the air conditioners.
To me it's just nice to have the time to be able to craft things that I like to look at ...and that serve a useful purpose. It's the Good Life!
