Materials: Fox fur, leather

Tail length: 21"

Will fit a belt loop up to this width: 1 1/2"

Description: When I got this tail, the poor thing was not in good shape. The upper half was just fine, nicely furred, but the entire lower half was completely bare, other than a TINY little tuft of white at the tip! So I wrapped the lower part of the tail in several layers of vintage yarn in browns, white, and black, making a nice long tassel at the end with the little tuft of fur right in the center! I added more yarn up near the tip at the hand-braided secondhand leather belt loop. And, as a finishing touch, I painted a little fox face in acrylics on a slice of deer antler and stitched that to the top of the tail as well. This is definitely a one of a kind piece, so if you want it, get it while you can because there won't be another like it!

This tail is eco-friendly--it was reclaimed from being a fur industry discard, and instead of going into an incinerator or landfill, it's become part of my art! And, as has been my practice for over a decade, part of the money will go to a nonprofit group that benefits wildlife and their habitats.

The strong, braided belt loop is both attractive and practical. It's more organic looking than a plain old keychain, it won't damage and tear through the leather of the tail like a ball chain, and it won't snap like a single strap of leather. The design also reflects braiding as a distinctive part of my style as an artist, and the leather is repurposed from old leather clothing as part of my commitment to sustainability. The belt loop may be used with any belt, though I am open to creating one to go with it for a small additional fee.

***Antler may NOT be sent to to Virginia (I can substitute bone instead if that's where you are). Animal parts may NOT be shipped outside the U.S.; please do not ask me to make an exception for you.***


The majority of my supplies are from secondhand sources, such as old fur and leather coats, or beads from old jewelry. Everything made with animal parts is given a full ritual purification according to my spiritual path. A portion of the proceeds is donated to nonprofit organizations such as the Defenders of Wildlife.
