Stones That Rock


Kathleen E. Masterson has lived on Cape Cod Massachusetts for 23 years and seldom returns home without a pocket full of stones, which she uses to make jewelry and hair accessories.

“My designs transform stones from a place in the waves to a new palette of silver and leather,” said Masterson.

Years of pounding surf has smoothed the stones so no electricity is needed to run a rock tumbler; nothing is altered other than drilling a hole. And like a snowflake, no two stones are exactly the same. We like the mini cairn earrings and the necklaces best. (Prices range from $8 to $80)
