Hafted Obsidian Arrowhead Necklaces

Obsidian necklace
I'm continuing to work on flintknapped jewellery this week for wholesale orders.  Here are a couple photos of hafted arrowhead necklaces made from obsidian, hardwood, artificial sinew and epoxy.  I don't use artificial sinew and epoxy very often when I'm making reproductions, but it makes sense in this context because of how it will wear relative to real sinew and hide glue.  Sinew and hide glue creates a very tough bond, but its not water resistant.  The epoxy and artificial sinew are much more durable and these necklaces are designed to last a lifetime without the glue or binding breaking down or deteriorating.

A bit of iron in the lava flow creates a stone with swirling red flames.  These necklaces retail for $28.75 CDN.

  1. Hello!

    I'm interested in one of this necklaces. I live in Spain and I'm wondering if you ship to my country.
    Thank you so much!
