Boar Tusk Necklace





Introduction: Boar Tusk Necklace


I wanted to make some cool viking style jewelry, so I decided to make wild boar tusk necklace!

Step 1: Things You Will Need

  • Two wild boar tusks (well, I'm not a hunter so I bought them at online auction)
  • leather
  • wire
  • rope
  • metal ring
  • hot glue
  • soldering eqipment
  • pliers

Step 2: Go Brush Your Teeth!

My teeth came a little dirty so before I made any steps I decided to clean them a little. I gave them a bath in a hydrogen peroxide and then I cleared them with a brush.

Step 3: Glueing


As a first step, I glued two teeth together with a hot glue so it would be easier to work with them.

Step 4: Wiring

Now just take a piece of wire and wrap them. This will make a spring which will hold them together.

Don't forget to make a loop at the centre!

Step 5: Soldering

After that cover the spring with a solder. This should reinforce the "holding part".

And I also like it, because it looks like it's casted :D

Step 6: Wrapping

Now just wrap it with leather for a better look. You can also add some beads as a decoration ;)

Step 7: Attaching the Ring

And we got to the (almost ) last step!

Take your pliers and attach a metal ring to that loop on the spring (I told you, it's important! :D )

Step 8: Wear It!

Aaand we are done! :)

Now just put it on a leather cord and proudly wear it!

So now I finally have some piece of jewelry which I could wear at battles. Though I'm not sure if it's historically correct, but I like it. And I hope you like it too! :)

This came out as a short instructable, but it wasn't so hard and I think it's all clear.

If you have any questions or compliments be sure to leave a comment! ;)

Thank you Tarun!

i like the design a lot! it looks very rugged and authentic. i love your shirt too, omg

Wow, thanks a lot! :-) yeah, I like it too :-D Pulp Fiction is my favorite movie!

looks great I used to make tusk necklaces when I was younger , actualy quite of few things out of tusks they care pretty good too . they stink if you burn them just like burning hair good job I like the solder on the sides

Thank you! In that case I'm glad I haven't burn them :D But I'm planning to carve the another two teeth, so I guess it will be terrible smell as well :D

oh ya awfull smell with power tools but on low speeds outside not so bad let me know when you do

"What about side by side with a friend?"

"Aye. I could do that."
