Very cool carved jade stone bead. I bought a set of these at a bead show yesterday and made a leather ‘pull’ for my bell that is outside on my porch. It calls my kids in from the woods/river.

Happy Spring. All the snow finally melted a couple days ago. It has been a long winter. Nice to see the sun.
