Clay Necklace

So I made a necklace from clay. Clothing isn’t just leather and cloth.
The clay was easy to shape into beads:

Make a tiny ball shape
Poke stick into center
Gently roll to make cylinder
Markings on the clay can be made by shells or any object which can be pressed it the clay. (e.g. cardium culture)

(Camera white balance made clay look an odd color)


A string was easy to spin from flax.

Once the beads were fired, I merely put them on a string… done!!!


It looks like the model likes it! \o/
As you can see, it makes a great addition to any stylish Neolithic person’s outfit.
Jewelry is very important for Neolithic folk and many examples of beads have been found.
