Lost Stone Necklaces and Earrings

These Elfshot obsidian necklaces and earrings will be available through Heritage Shops in Newfoundland and Labrador in the summer of 2011.   I'm not sure which of the dozen or so Heritage Shops they'll wind up in, but the shop at Port au Choix always has a big selection.  
I make these from flakes of obsidian that are the byproduct of knapping larger stone tools.  Usually flakes like these are discarded, but it seems a shame to lose all these beautiful translucent flakes.  So I save the most remarkable pieces and turn them into these necklaces and earrings.  I call them the Lost Stone series.

  1. You know, these necklaces resemble the Inuit and other people's necklaces, especially the "Shaman's" necklace, it had a lot of small ivory or bone knives and tools dangling from it. Be neat to use the remnants of ivory and bone to create something like that, hmmm,that's an idea.
