From bowling ball to pendant…..

How did that happen; a bowling ball turn into a pendant?  Here is how….

I often buy gemstone cabochons from SuperiorAgates.etsy.com because I am always able to find something nice to work with.  The other day while crusing Facebook I saw a awesome cabochon that they had just listed.  When I went to their site I found out that it wasn’t a stone but rather made from a bowling ball.  Way to recycle guys.

I thought I would show it off and what I did with it.100_9587
