How's it going Homies. My Names Daniel A. Pierce/Spider
I'm 25 from Big Pine, California. I've been flintknapping for about the
past 4 years. Learned locally, out of town, personally and on the web.

I mainly focus on mainly on making necklaces - hearts, ovals, claws,
arrowheads & unique shapes plus bolo ties & knives! While I've only
wrapped a few points the Majority of the Wrapping goes to Michael
Thornton - skezzcrom & DPBJewelry I just do the knapping
and the photos.

So if you interested in order a piece or buying directly online you can
contact me through note or visit my etsy page which is at :
www.etsy.com/people/danielapie…

And any other question feel free to contact me below. Stay Fresh Homies

Many years ago I did similar work.

arrowheads bought and managed the wire, I will look if I have some forgotten even in the trunk.

I found a field filled with flint. I collected a bag full of large pieces, and I'll be able to return there whenever I visit my cousin. But, unfortunately, it's the only place I won't be able to walk barefoot, which I do a lot outside. Thistle thorns are nearly impossible to remove.

haha That's so cool that you sat down with your family to watch it! 

I'm really happy you liked it, because your work is great. I grew up playing around with
bows, arrows, slings and reading forums like PaleoPlanet so it's a real pleasure to me 
to be able to feature your flint knapping! 

Thanks Daniel, I'd really appreciate it! :)
