    Default Mo Bushcraft Jewlery

    I'm really fortunate that I have a wife who hasn't even been in a jewelry store in all the years I've known her. She won't go out of the house without earrings though and loves pendants, but they all have to be hand made. Here are the two most recent things I have made. The whale is made of moose antler billet (the solid part right next to the head). It is 1 3/4" long. I roughed it out with a coping saw and then carved it with a Mora 120 and a auger file. It is sanded to 20,000. The earrings are tiny birch bark rolls, just like the bark rolls that are made into match boxes, except in miniature. I made the beads on the earrings from wooly mammoth ivory found on the Kobuk River. Next she wants some earrings made from some of the marine debris that is floating up on our shores from the Japanese tsunami - that will take some creative thinking, but I'll come up with something. These are great projects for stormy days or when recovering from injuries or illness. Give it a try, Jim

    Very, very sweet!

    I used to carve Orca pendants for earrings out of the cheek bones of walleye pollock, but nothing I ever made comes anywhere close to being as beautiful as that whale!

    I still keep one of those Orcas in my medicine bag as a water talisman.
