Everything that Mother Nature creates has a purpose, each one of these stones has been found on the beach with naturally occurring holes. They have many names, sometimes called Hag stones, Odin stones or simply holey stones. The popular belief is that one does not find these stones, they find you. The wearing of the stone is thought to have protective and healing powers. In old folklore, sailors would hang them from their boats for protection from the elements and the hazards of their lifestyles. With my art, I have taken the natural energy of these special stones and added ink to give them each a specific energy signature.
