Growing up in the city of Pittsburgh, I spent my life surrounded by a long history of innovators and hard workers that inspire me to this day. As a wife, mother and recent empty-nester, I stay busy listening to 80’s rock , (somewhat inappropriate) 90’s hip hop, watching all the Marvel movies and hanging out with my two rescue dogs , Remus Lupin and Thor Odinson.
Thanks to the “Great Pause” (and unemployment) my need to channel my anxiousness brought into life the Pick ‘N Peel Stones. Although I wouldn’t wish to relive the year that must not be named, I am so happy that my little project has brought so much happiness to others and absolutely love hearing from my customers about their experience!
Words From The Owner
The stones are palm sized lava rocks with all kinds of awesome nooks and crannies for the stone filler to get into. The filler itself is a latex-based glue that pulls away , ever so wonderfully, with the help of very sharp double-sided picking hook. I hand-dipped one side of each stone in the glue to completely cover it and allow you to slowly peel it away. The other side is primed for major picking and excavating the filler out of the nooks and crannies.
I can’t get enough of these stones! I wondered though if I would be the only one, so I tested the waters. I talked to friends and family and asked if they would like to try a stone or two. Lo and behold , it’s a hit ! I got wonderful feedback from people I know who would be brutally honest, not just my mom ( who loves them btw).
I started making stones to sell and here we are!
