**NZ Impression-牛骨項鍊

我住的Homestay有多好了?除了可以教我們烹飪外,還教我們做項鍊~在Queen St.的街上,常常可以看到有人在賣綠石和牛骨項鍊,一般一個都可以賣到NZ$15以上,而我Homestay的爸爸,竟然可以自己就做出牛骨的項鍊,所以當然要好好學一下了~

做牛骨項鍊並沒有想像中的困難,不過前置的作業就麻煩多了,他先買了牛骨頭後,還要先烤過除去水分,在曬切割掉中間沒用的部位,只留下表面白色的骨頭,而骨頭太硬或太軟不行,顏色不夠白也不行....一切的條件都很嚴苛,工具更是需要鑽孔機、銼刀...

切出一小塊平整的表面後,用鉛筆在骨頭上畫出你要的圖案,在用鋸子切出大致的外表,用鑽孔機鑽中間的洞,在用銼刀慢慢的磨出圓滑的表面就可以完成了。基本上只要你有好的圖案的話,做出來的時間並不會很久~~不過這次因為買到的骨頭太硬,顏色不夠白,加上工具有缺,所以只有試做了兩個就沒在繼續做了~

他說路上賣的很多都是牛骨或是鯨魚骨頭,而這邊有工廠或是個人工作室的人做出來賣的,都是需要用到人手工作出來的~

(Cow Bone Necklace Class)

I live in a special homestay. My homestay father tough us cooking last Saturday, and this Sunday he tough us to make a cow bone necklace.

When we walk on Queen St. - we can see many people selling greenstone or bone necklaces, but I never though I would have a chance to make it myself. Before we began to make a necklace, we had to draw our designs and prepare the bones. It is very difficult to find a good cow bone, because you have to care about the color, hardness and surface. By the way, you also have to prepare many tools.

After we got a small flat piece of cow bone, we drew our design on the bone, and use a saw to saw the main shape. Then we used files to add detail. Basically, it doesn't take a long time to make a necklace, but you must have a good design first. This time we didn't get good cow bones, so we just tried a small one. I hope we can get good bones next time, then I can make many necklaces to give my friends.
