Hi Grace, this is the website of the French producer and the original infoplace on the web(the Swedish company Sufraco is just a retailer in Scandinavia):

These are reminiscent of a series that Jill Bliss did for a fine art exhibition at Motel last year called "Soft Rock" see here:

I e-mailed Smarin Design a few days ago regarding North American or online distributors of livingstones. Apparently you can order them online directly from the manufacturer and it takes about fifteen days for delivery. The prices are as follows (in Euros); check the French web site for reference to the names/sizes:

Gilda: 4850
Enza: 4500
Monica: 1605
Rosa: 1248
Carla: 963
Marc: 346
Christophe: 176
Xavier: 176
Jacques: 149
Hervé: 120
André: 104
Pierre: 89
Yann: 57
Edgar: 57

You can order any of the above in one of ten different shades. Needless to say they're too expensive for me but at least now you know how much each costs!
