I need to add some doubt about my interpretation of the amulets. After talking to a friend and doing some research I did not find any real fossiles worn as amulets, only bone-made. So maybe the amulet represents only Donar's weapon, not what he does with it (throwing thunderstorms that create the thunderbolt fossiles). The amulet would then really be an analogy to Thor's hammer. Only with Donar, it seams to be a club, not a hammer. That's what makes it so confusing in German.
Donar's club = Donarkeule
Thunderbolts = Donnerkeile
To me, that's a bit too similar to be just a coincidence.
Oh, and this is the original jewellery (sorry, turned wrong when uploading)


I think my thunderbolt will then be modelled after the fossile, not the club jewellery.

Fascinating. I've never seen nailbinding before. I like the idea of a board for historic techniques.  Cool

Heeh, cute, it's not called nailbinding, it's called nalbinding. Nal means needle in German i.e. needle binding. If interested there is a fairly large English needle binding group, I think it's called "Nalbinding". For the interested it is also called nlebinding, that is in Scandinavia (where I'm from). There is in general a TON of names for that.

It's really funny. I collected those fossils when I was a kid. I must have several kilos of them somewhere XP We always went on holiday along the coats line (Denmark is basically made of coast line), and everywhere you can find them. I can tell that some of the ones I found is big enough for using as amulets like the ones you've got a picture of there. And as for shape you thunderbolt looks exactly like my ton of fossils Smiley

I don't see how that's naughtier than the dildo cozy...?

she might not be using it for something as naughty as the dildo but it does look naughtier then the dildo cozy. it looks like a ribbed condom. IMO

also keep in mind us americans are raunchier than most other countries. many of which are much more modest in what we view daily.
