The stones for these two pieces were found in the chilly rushing waters at the confluence of the Madison & Jefferson Rivers where they become one, forming the Missouri River, the longest river in North America. How curious the way they erode, and polish in the flow. Who else through the ages idly and gently rubbed these stones before casting them back into the currant? How improbable to come upon any one stone at any particular moment. A bellybutton in Jasper and a modernist composition in red brick and yellow ochre.
The beads joining these enticing stones are crystalline picture jasper & fossilized coral in one and antique Afghan carnelian in the other.
