A timeless handcrafted pendant!
Knapping is an ancient technique that dates back to the Stone Age. It is used to shape stone, typically flint, to produce cutting tools and weapons. Although widespread throughout the globe, these stone arrowheads represent those of the native American Indians.
These modern arrowheads have been hand knapped by various artisans in Arizona, USA near the Mexican border and later paired with a hand twisted cord bulit up from six wax coated linen threads.
A miniture monkey's fist acts as the cord's toggle. A monkey's fist is a sailors' knot that was tied to the end of rope, serving as a weight, when throwing lines between ship and dock.
