What I Really Want: Agate Necklaces

I've had these really strange obsession with agate lately. When the "craving" first struck I shuffled off to eBay but came up with a bunch of ticky tacky pendants that looked like they should be collecting dust in some tiny nature preserve gift shop.

I found some nice options on Etsy and Supermarket and though these were perfectly lovely, my appetite continued.

Thanks to a serendipitous turn of events (actually an unrelated Google alert email - thanks guys!) I stumbled upon a blog called Oh Joy!...boy, oh joy indeed.

Turns out it's author and I are obsessed-with-agate twins. Her brilliant find? A site called Stone & Honey.

Just look at these sweet-as-honey finds:

Funny, I'm just finishing up an agate necklace that looks like a cave with a bat in it. Nothing to do with Batman, I swear.
