From prehistoric petroglyphs on stone walls to the sculpture of the ancient Greeks to the stylised rock gardens of Asian temples, cultures in all ages and in all lands have had a love affair with stone. Stone adds elegance, beauty and a feeling of permanence to any setting. Now author Linda Lee Purvis, a designer who specialises in work with natural materials, shows readers how they can incorporate the spirit of stone into their homes and lives. With clear and easy instructions, Purvis guides the reader through dozens of wonderful, elegant projects and designs using rocks, stones and pebbles. From gift ideas to home accents to indoor gardening accessories, these creations will appeal to crafters, artisans and anyone interested in nature, home decorating or simplicity. The projects, which are suited to a wide range of skill levels, are beautifully photographed and include a table-top Zen garden, scented stones, a loose pebble trivet, jewellery, an engraved house sign, carved totems, plant markers and much more. Purvis teaches readers to work with the beauty of stone to inexpensively create for themselves the high-cost items that are so prevalent in today's marketplace. It's time to tap into the timeless spirit of stone.
