Chunky chain necklace handmade of buffalo horn
When we think about products from buffaloes, most of us usually think about their meat, but actually their horn is a beautiful material to make horn jewelry and other things such as kitchenwares, comb...due to their amazing properties, hard but soft!
Firstly let's try to imagine how to make a chunky chain necklace from buffalo horn?!? It's so different between a horn and a necklace. Well, i have to say i had no idea how to do it at the beginning i learned about it! But trust me, it's a wonderful transition!
So, this is the process of how i make a chunky chain necklace from the buffalo horn: at first i purchase the raw horns of course haha, i'm a picky person, i love to see if each horn i choose will have beautiful textures on it, then i clean the horns, and cut each horn into pieces. Then i will boil them to make them softer, so i can laminate them easier. From those flat horn pieces, i continue to cut them into many smaller chain details, using some supporting machines like sawder, sander and polish them for a finishing layer. Now it's time to leave the dusty workshop, and bring all the chain pieces with me, go to my desk, and start to link all the pieces together, yay, that's how you get your beautiul chunky chain necklace!
And you know that, you can be very creative with buffalo horn when making jewelry, each piece is unique since you won't be able to find the same textures in another piece.
I started to make buffalo horn jewelry about a year ago, i enjoy this job very much, it allows me live a freedom and creative life. More than that, i feel so good when i dare to conquer my fear about what i'm gonna do if i fall when i quit my unhappy fulltime job just to make jewelry, but i did. At first it was so tough, i thought i couldn't stand the pressure of being a young entreprenour. But finally i decided to go through it, because what if i fall? Well the worst thing is i will have to find another job, but at least i learn a lesson and do better next time. Fortunately i'm still living in my dream lol, i keep doing what i love, making jewelry and being creative. I hope to inspire some women around me, that if i can do that, you can do that, just leave everything behind and live for yourself, sometimes being a little selfish won't hurt anybody lol, i've learned that we need to feel good before we bring the good thing to others! I do hope my jewelry will bring you a little braveness from me haha, but i've put a lot of love and passion into every single piece so yes, you get my love and passion ;)
