A quick informal look at the Bushcraft Necklace. READ BELOW FOR REFERENCE. TECHNIQUE 1) Take off neck. 2) Loosen adjustable knots for max lanyard length. 3) Slide Ferro Rod to opposite side. 4) Position yourself properly. Put edge of Ceramic Scraper on Firesteel and PULL Firesteel toward you while holding STILL Ceramic Scraper. CARE: - Usually, if you take frequent showers, it will wash away any salt or harsh chemicals left on it by sweat or swimming. For good measure, it is prudent to occasionally oil it with a leather preserver/Protectant. We have had great results with Obenauf's Heavy Duty LP. - Be careful when sliding up the Firesteel toggle up the necklace not to skin the fine finish on the leather. Likewise, avoid nicking the leather cord with the edge of the ceramic scrapper pi...

I had the opportunity to spend some time with my good friends Nate Runals, in whose shop this was filmed, and Robert Burns of Wilderness Ironworks who guided me through the process of forging a damascus, silver lined ring. The steel is 18 layers of alternating wrought iron and 15n20 nickel steel. For a detailed photo tutorial and excellent written explanation of the process, please visit this link to the Bladesmith's Forum where Robert describes his process. http://www.bladesmithsforum.com/index.php?showtopic=33249&hl= Interested in a ring like this?

Wrapping a primitive flint knife with plaited porcupine quillwork. Starting with making twine/thread from deer sinew. The quills are then soaked in warm water to soften them. The porcupine quills are wrapped around two pieces of deer sinew twine/thread which is then wrapped around the deer leg bone knife handle. Some of the quills are left natural and some are dyed red. The quills came from a road-killed porcupine found in western Oklahoma. It's interesting to know that prior to any beadwork done by the Native Americans, porcupine quills were used for decoration. Plaiting was used on quite a few items; pipestems, quirts, etc. but I figured it would look nice on a knife handle.
Here's a quick little video of a necklace I just made after work in my cold shop! It was about 38 degrees in there but the halogen light I had next to me kept me warm. My wife had to provide a gift to a coworker as her Secret Santa, so she asked me if I could make a flint snowflake necklace, "of course I can" I told her, but this proved to be easier said than done. I finally came up with a design I liked and chipped it out. Here is the finished necklace plus a few other odds and ends!

Pharaonic Jewelry Pharaonic Jewelry Ancient Egypt Fashion Magic Egypt - Egypt Tourism Guide Jewellery played different roles in Egypt. In addition to the affinity of human beings, by nature, for something beautiful; the jewelry had a religious and magical significance in the world of the ancient Egyptian, to protect the wearer from evil. The Ancient Egyptians began making jewelry during the Badari and Naqada, in prehistoric times, from simple materials. Such as: plant branches, shells, beads, solid stones or bones, and these were arranged in threads of flax or cow hair. To give these stones some brilliancehttp://www.egypttourismguide.com/tours/browse/Luxor http://www.egypttourismguide.com/tours/browse/Cairo
I show you how to cut rocks using a cheap tile saw. I bought it from Harbor Freight for about $50. It's a Chicago Electric 7" Portable Wet Cutting Tile Saw #40315. This is how I cut the rocks that my wife uses to make some of her jewelry. We usually polish these small slabs in a vibratory tumbler, but sometimes used a barrel tumbler, or a combination of the two types. Some of the slabs will be wire wrapped. Some will be drilled and have a small finding attached. I have the fence set to about 3/8ths of an inch. Too much thinner and the rock is more likely to break while cutting. Some types of rocks will break easier than others. Also it leaves extra material that will be lost during the polishing process. These slabs can also be used to make cabochons. http://www.rocks-gemstones.com

How I was inspired to work with black Danish flint, in stead of some other black gemstone, as for instance black diamonds, that I could not get from ethical source - and black flint is purely sustainable, collected and sorted by myself into the colours and sizes suitable for my jewellery
