I am pleased to introduce to my website a range of simple and effective looking clay pipe stem necklaces which are suitable for reenactors, olde-worlde fancy-dress themes and as fashion curio's. I put these together using original tobacco pipe stems which mainly date from the 1660-1850 period.

Clay pipe stems are frequent finds on land in England where they were once dumped along with other broken household items all those years ago. People find them in gardens, in ploughed fields, rivers and occasionally masses of them are found on sites that were once pipe making workshops.





How I made the Necklaces...

To make these lovely necklaces I used only authentic pipe stems that were found at a few locations mainly in England, and a few stems used originate from Holland. Material was thoroughly cleaned and holes in the stems were unblocked. Sharp edges were smoothed using a diamond file. I used waxed cord as well as clear nylon line to thread them. In most cases I used just selected stems but on some I introduced modern beads to enhance the design. One or two of the necklaces might contain some 17th and 18th century Dutch stems which have patterns on them while others include heavily burned stem pieces or pipe bowl fragments as special effects.

I hope you will like these necklaces I have created using authentic pipe pieces. They are ideal for re-enactments and could be used with your costume to great effect - enhancing your appearance in such a unique and novel way!

Thank You.
