My on-line jewelry group, The Beadhive, is doing a 3 month challenge in which we cover the entire history of jewelry. Each month we have 3 time periods to choose from. One of the options for January was the prehistoric era.
I came across some bobcat claws and foot bones on Etsy and thought they would be perfect. They say bobcats were around at the dawn of man. See, I did my "research."
I think what I came up with is hilarious, but you can't go by my strange sense of humor. See for yourself:
ASCENT OF MAN IS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE HERE!
During February, we are covering the Medieval and Gothic periods. I have already begun my piece for this. It will be for the Middle Ages, when religious imagery was prominent in jewelry. During the beginning of the Middle Ages, there was far less focus on actual design than there was on mystical significance. I hope to have it done by the end of the week. Sorry, no spoilers today.
