Agate collecting at Newport

Sorry folks that I have been busy at work and no time to catch you up on the local beachcombing here in the Newport area. After the last week of storms that hit our area the agate collecting should be good for spring break!

This is just one of many that have come in lately with some great finds. This one was found by Glen D. of Newport. I wire wrapped this pendant in 14KGF wire. The lapidary art of wire wrap works well to capture anything.

Hopefully tomorrow I will get a lot more up for you to see some of the recent treasures that we have been enjoying lately from the coastline here in Newport.
