About Kerrie Owens, Lapidary Carver

I am a Lapidary artist (stone carver), I also use this method with wood, fossil and shell.  If possible I prefer to use reclaimed, second hand, beach combed and sustainable materials, and slowly working on my ethics with in the stone area, trying to slowly find direct links to mines and collectors. I am also a metal caster specialising in sterling silver in delft clay using fossils as the original mold.

This listing is for a unisex pendant made from selenite, this peice has been hand carved and poshlished inta simple Hei Toki form. It is hung on polyester waxed cord for durability. Selenite is fragile and will break if not treated right and should be kept away from water as eventually it will also disintegrate.

I started learning to carve in Hokitika while backpacking New Zealand. It was the one thing I was desperate to do. It took a while to find a teacher that would teach a woman, but I got there in the end. I have been trying to get all the equipment together ever since to keep going.
