WIP -- obsidian and ammonities

I've actually managed to acquire some obsidian needles -- these are longish, thinnish, more or less pointed naturally formed pieces of obsidian that apparently are found in only a few  places. I absolutely love them--they're obviously natural/raw/primitive, but lend themselves nicely to at least some of my ideas about use.

Here are some pics of the raw stuff along with a few becoming something else:the last one is some less pointy pieces I'm thinking of offering for sale -- among other things, they make lovely-sounding windchimes. Will the sound keep the walking dead away from your house?  I don't know, but it can't hurt.

In addition, I've been working on some of the arrowheads seen in the last post, plus some ammonites I've acquired recently--these pics (and some of the pieces) aren't ready to list yet, but I thought some of you might like to see what I'm up to.  The pics also include one pair of steampunk earrings with fairies--not quite so new, but I think not previously   photographed. So here goes:

As always, comments, questions, etc. are welcome, even encouraged--let me know someone's actually looking!

  1. I'm definitely looking - afraid I don't often comment tho which means I'm bad. However must say I've never heard of obsidian needles - fascinating to look at (and the little treats you've tucked in amongst them).
