Accessory-making Activity


The penannular-shaped earrings and spatula-shaped pendants that were popular about 7,000 to 5,000 years ago have been excavated from the area east of JR Awaraonsen Station. It is the oldest category of stone accessories in Japan and has the largest quantity and boasts highest quality of penannular-shaped earrings.
We will make accessories with a modern twist based on the excavated accessories

Step 1
Use coarse sandpaper (black) to carve out the rough shape.

Step 2
Use fine sandpaper (brown) to erase the scratches and adjust the shape.

Step 3
Use waterproof sandpaper to smooth the surface.
Submerge in a tray containing dyeing water and wait for about 20 minutes.

Step 4
Pull it up and let it dry, then thread the string through it and decorate it with beads to complete!


You will be using tools and blocks to shape the stones, so please be careful not to injure yourself.
