The transformation of a Mexican Beach Pebble

One of our most popular pebbles is the Black Mexican Beach Pebble. This pebble come from the beaches of Mexico, where collecting and sorting them has become quite a cottage industry for the local families.

A well known artist in the New York City art community hired us to produce some pebbles that he is using to create a rock and cable sculpture. We completed the project and shipped the pebbles this week. Our customer just e-mailed us:

"Just wanted to let you know that we got the stone order; haven't gone through it too carefully yet, but tentatively everything looks OK!
Thanks a lot!
Also, these rock cables are going to descend into a trough that would be filled with pebbles."

So there you have it...the transformation of a common beach pebble from Mexico into a proud sculpted stone creation prominently displayed in an art gallery in New York City. Talk about a rags to riches story. Pictures to follow!

Let us know how we can help you with your next stone project. It may not be as much of a transformation, but all of our products are important to us and will surely satisfy your expectations.
