Another primitive piece, this time a necklace. I'm fascinated by adornment. From early pieces like this to modern cosmetics and jewelry, people have been fancying themselves up since we first figured out how. I think we should all go back to wearing animal bones and rocks.
Approx. 4 inches long x 3 inches across. Lower mandible of fox, glass beads, natural quartz crystal (removable), copper wire, leather.
This is a custom bracelet I made with bones provided by the commisioner.
I mixed up these rattlesnake vertebrae with turquoise colored stone round beads that I got years ago in another crafter's stash that was handed off to me. The colors of the beads got a little washed out due to the flash, but you get the idea. The bracelet is 8" long with a spring clasp.
I have more snake vertebrae if you'd like your own bracelet, and I have lots of other beads, too! I am open for custom work, so feel free to contact me
