and finally completed my bone pendant necklace, its that 4 string round plait i get lazy about half way through, then theres tiny turks head button knots that are much more difficult with fine string than with leather, rawhide or leather lace even. i found the upper bone on the beach and its got that lovely sea smooth ness to it, the inner bone is from treasurehider and is fossilized bone sticks from marine animals of the miocene epoch (about 23 - 5 million years old). the one is suspended inside the other.
and then these pendants i've been working on, the first one is a shoe horn with paper and gold leaf and a copper hoop at the top. the second is a door latch. both had great rust beautiful texture thats been rubbed back and sealed.
i'l be making these into necklaces that i want to keep relatively simple.
