Make a stone age necklace

stoneagenecklace2

 

Fabulous jewellery has been found at stone age sites such as this one at Skara Brae, a Neolithic site in Orkney in Scotland. It is made from bone and tusks – they used many kinds of bones including tusks from wild boar which they would have hunted.

Here is how to make your very own Stone Age Necklace:

You will need:

  • Some white air drying clay or modelling dough
  • Something to make holes with – a thin paint brush will work well.
  • Elastic or string to thread through your beads.

Start by making the tusks! Take a piece of dough about the size of your finger. Roll it into a sausage shape then taper off one end to make a sharp point.

You can give it a slight cytotec order curve to make it look more realistic.

Next use the pointed end of a paint brush to make a hole at the widest end of the tusk.

The other beads are meant to look like pieces of bone – roll some smaller pieces of dough into a shape like a small marshmallow. Again use the paint brush to make a hole through it.

Leave all the beads to dry.

When the beads are dry you can thread them with the elastic or string.

Wear it and go out hunting, or impress your neighbours at the next feast.
