Bryan Wolbrink, HAPPY PICKER, (rock picker). My wife and I live in Allendale, MI. We spend our vacations walking the beaches of Lake Superior and Lake Michigan, looking for agates, basalt, jasper, unakite, and the well-known petoskey stone. I cut and polish the stones that I use to wire-wrap into pendants. I learned how to wire-wrap through lots of practice and by watching You Tube videos.
These Pudding Stone pendants vary in length from 1 3/4" - 2 1/2". It is fine to call to see what pendants are still available, or if you spot a favorite. Otherwise we will select one for you.
The pebbles in Pudding Stones are glacial debris, washed round by an ancient river about 2 billion years ago. This river bottom was compressed (metamorphosed) and the round pebbles were "glued" together with white quartz sand. The body of the rock will be white with pebbles, ranging in color from red, black and tan. It can be found on the northeastern shore of Lake Michigan, but is more common on the northeast side of the state in Lake Huron.
