Petrified Forest

Project by Janice Parsons
Sample by Kate Richbourg

Petrified wood is a wonder to behold…millions of years in the making, the natural organic material is slowly replaced by minerals, leaving behind colorful petrified wood. The logs in the Petrified Forest of Arizona are surrounded by wind-eroded canyons and rock formations, desert shrubs, fossils, and wildlife. Having visited as a child, Kate remains struck by the very idea of petrified wood, and it’s still one of her favorite materials to work with today! This unique location inspired Kate to develop a Prairie bracelet using the colors found in the natural beauty of this Arizona landscape.

Prairie is one of our most beloved projects and Petrified Forest takes it to a new level with the addition of the half-circle magnetic clasp and a new top-stitch beading technique, we wonder why we never thought of doing before!
