Actually micarta is the name of a US based company that uses this very technique to produce heavy-duty knife scales - the originally intended purpose of this versatile material. Over time micarta established itself as general name for the material or procedure.
The many possibilities of micarta as basic material are outright fascinating and I will immerse myself deeper into this technique once spring arrives, for in winter the crazy lab is cold as the heart of Elizabeth Báthory.
Piece for piece I use solid pieces of micarta to create more pendants and even earrings. Here we have some of the recent creations:
|Art crossover a la Fox|
Avanova Design - excellent horn jewellery, lovely hand made bags and other fashion accessories that suit our - and hopefully your - taste.
|The colour Brown|
Brown is down-home, persistent and solid, but also warm and cuddly. We often associate brown with tasty, aromatic coffee, freshly baked bread or sweet, sweet chocolate.
|Pictures in the forest|
I love a relaxing forest walk - and since we run our little jewellery business, I always bring a few pieces along and (at least) one camera.
|Horn rings for men and women|
Smooth, classy rings - natural horn in different ring sizes and various horn colours.
|7 thin horn bangles in a set|
Here we have seven thin bangles, hand made from natural horn in a set. Available in light or dark colour.
|Teardrop shaped horn earrings|
Natural horn is strong, resilient and feather-light. With its interesting, naturally grown grain, horn is a great resource for creating lovely horn jewellery.
|Celtic knot style pendant on a sunflower|
Real horn is very tough and light as a feather. Considering the natural patterns, it is the perfect material for making excellent horn jewellery.
