Aztec Bone Pendant by Hands-and-Teeth Aztec Bone Pendant by Hands-and-Teeth
My latest bone jewelry piece. :)
I really liked this piece because it was so simple to create. The only real work involved was drilling holes through the vertebrae and wiring them.

I am pretty happy with the way this pendant looks to be from some ancient culture, which is why I call it the Aztec bone pendant. It does kind of look like it might be Aztec.


This pendant has been sold, but a replica is available at my etsy shop! [link]

These bone necklaces are so neat. I like the look of this one, especially the pores in the bones and the shape of it. They look like a small ribcage in a way. They curve nicely with each other and the bones look nice and natural. This is a neat piece. :thumbsup:

I'm glad you like it. :) I find something appealing in the way that bones were once from nature, from life. They have the essence of the earth and living things in them. They embody the circle of life. I like that earthy and natural feel that bones have.

I try to keep bones looking very natural, I don't give them any harsh treatments to bleach them or remove all traces of flesh, (which means some clingies may be there). I don't want to take away the essence of nature in them.

I agree. Bones look artistic in a natural way. Especially their curves and the way they fit together the way they do. :nod:

I like the natural look. If they're too bleached they look like they're fake or something.
