About

Welcome to our shop! We are a mother daughter team who let rock collecting go to our heads. Literally! Many of our rocks are hand collected in the rivers, woods and beaches of Maryland. We LOVE our little niche on minerals and Earth Science!

Chrissy searches and collects the rocks and stones we use and Debbie designs the artwork for each stone. A day before we carve them, the stones are placed into a special non toxic "soak". After the soak, we toothbrush clean and dry them. Then it's onto the artwork. Debbie and Chrissy design their own artwork for each stone. Once exposed, we then have to hand wash out the mask to expose the image. After completely washing out the image, we place the mask into the dryer. Once dry, we position the exposed mask into the stone and tape it off and begin carving. We work carefully on every single piece to bring in your ideas and individuality design…

We have 6 chickens (Spotty, Speckle, Dotty, Freckle, Betsy & Brownie) and three cats, one moggie named Ethel, the elder Birman named "Mister" and the new little girl named Honey Bun, who is spoiled by everyone and rightfully. We no longer have horses, but used to and this is seen throughout our items. Debbie grew up on the shore in Annapolis and because of this we carry several nautical related items. Chrissy has been studying Herbalism for the past several years and because of this you will also see many organic herb, teas, spices and plant related items.

Thank you so much for supporting American crafters!

Debbie & Chrissy
