    Mary S - Sweet Chick says:

    Anita, I have heard of White Buffalo and from what I gather it is usually howlite.
    There is also a stone called Wild Horse that is often confused with it and sometimes the names are used interchangeably. They are however, two different stones.
    Wild Horse is mined in Arizona (the mine is privately owned no new mining has been done recently so it is a very expensive stone.) Wild horse generally has a lot of brown veining and sometimes a pinkish cast to it.
    Can’t say for sure what you have but I bet it’s howlite. The speckles are puzzling though. So maybe it’s something TOTALLY different.

    Mary S - Sweet Chick says:

    Bubbly! I love your necklace and bracelet!!
    Mind if I use your necklace idea!?

    And how did you make the bracelet?!
    Did you set the cabachonin it?

    Beautiful beads!!

  54. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Thanks, everyone!
    Sweet chick, I cheated- the ‘cab’ is a S.Silver & turq double clasp. It was pre assembled. I have done a little stone setting- but I am not yet very good at it!
    Anita, I have never heard of the buffalo stone; sorry.

  55. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    I think buffalo stone is howlite too

  56. Smoky Rose

    gem id via picks, funny! I’m gonna have to email my gem teacher and tell him :)
    I’m gonna google it and be back

    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Smoky, have you been busy?

  59. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    the matrix ‘may’ look different from what you’re used to because of difference in trace elements or other environmental factors at the time of formation – but I’m still looking

  60. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    I’m not finding buffalo stone in any of my books – but I know what is commonly referred to as buffalo turquoise is natural, undyed howlite…..
    not that I am the end all be all, by any stretch….other chick-hounds, jump in :)

  61. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Hi Mommykat!!!!!! I have, yes – the weekend, I was catching up on things I’ve been neglecting (during my recent slump) and making some jewelry… back to the work week, back to catching up on things I’ve neglected at work…. I will catch up – logged on this am for a bit to do a pick… but I’ve lost my pick knack, I fear – nothing was coming to me – guess I’ve just had a lot on my mind. I’m not turning in my chick id card – not to worry – I’m here and will be here more soon as life settles a bit.
    How are you???

  62. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Are you feeling well? I mean… Chicky HUG 4 YOU!

  63. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Thank you so much for Chicky HUG! Really, I’m good! Honest! …I just can’t pull a pick outta me – have a half done Polar Bear..maybe I could finish him up and release. I’m ok though – over Sat-Sun-Mon, made 3 necklaces – ok, know that’s not stellar, but I am one slow moving creature.

  64. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Anita, it’s icy cold to the touch, yes? it is a real stone? could it be, you think, maybe reconstituted howlite?…. I’m afraid I’m saying the wrong thing and would NEVER want to offend… just this ameteur’s impression, is all.

  65. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Mommykat! Awesome necklace, I neglected to say. I love that brass piece!
    Anita, your beads, regardless of what they’re called, are beautiful, love the corals, too

    White Buffalo stone: I’ve seen it advertised in a native american catalog, Southwest Indian Foundation. Here’s a link for what they have shown in a bracelet.

    http://www.southwestindian.com.....fm/ct/1001

    Otherwise I was thinking magnesite (too yellow?) or howlite too.

    I did well, and I’m really amazed for the grammar, because it had really hard sentences to diagram! (and grammar isn’t my best subject)

    Hmmm, it’s hard to know with some of these things, isn’t it! I guess you have to trust your sources to know for sure.

    I’ve also heard that Rainbow Calsilica is a manmade stone. Who knows?!?

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    I tend to do at least 2 things at one time!

  85. No Photo
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    I used a bunch of shorter sections of wire. I used one 24 ga. to string the pearls. Wrapped that in a circle, with about a foot of tail on each end. Then hooked 2 more pieces about 3-4 ft. (bent in the middle) on to that circle. Then I made loops, literally all the way around the pearls. Used another strand to weave & loop through the first set. It kind of interlocks & loops as it goes.

  86. No Photo
    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    It’s really cool!

  87. No Photo
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Also, the wire I used is a craft wire – not sterling. It’s copper with a non-tarnish silver (look) coating. It’s good stuff, and stays pretty soft while working with it. The majority of the nest is 22 ga. wire. I don’t like the idea that it could crush with pressure.

  88. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    I never got the hang of diagramming sentences… oh, I didn’t like that.
    Good for you, Little Chick! I’m sure you’ll do well on tomorrow’s too! Good Luck with them!

    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Thanks! Does that make sense to you? I was thinking I could post photos of “work in progress” on a copper one, but that won’t be till tomorrow at the earliest. Would that help?
