  • I think I'll make a pendant

    I'm thinking of making a pendant from this piece of flint. How would I go about drilling a small hole in it for a chain to fit through? (Without destroying it) For as pretty as Flint Ridge flint'd think it would be worth something.

      You could also consider wire wrapping your piece. There are many tutorials on youtube for such hobbies. It may be safer than tryimng to drill it out and you can end up with some fine jewelery.

        Thank you, Hoss!  I like the wrap idea MUCH better!  I considered a hole...but probably could not have brought myself to actually commence drilling!  The wrap would preserve the piece! :cheer: When I get it done I'll post it back in this thread.  May take a while though!

          Hi Pam wrap is a best way, i had a sharks tooth done in silver with an eyelet for a chain for my son it was pretty cheap then, silver has gone up now, with your colors gold would really sit it off,,,looking forward to what you do with it,,,ts
