Learning a new craft

As a child I collected rocks. As a teenager I collected stone pendants. As a young adult I find myself collecting yet another rock-based hobby: making my own stone pendants.
About 2 months ago I found a wonderful store at Granville Island called Kimdoly.  It sparked the fire that is my current interest in collecting and drilling my own beach stones to use in pendants.
I decided to start a blog here to (hopefully) keep track of my progress as I go through the process of learning to drill stones and begin to make jewelry with them.
