I have been specializing in professional bone and skull cleaning since 2008. I use a method of bone cleaning called 'maceration'. This utilizes a natural decomposition bacteria to gently clean bones.

My dried specimens are always dried using non-toxic, chemical-free methods.

Most of my specimens are acquired as a by-product of the hunting and trapping trades, where bones and various other parts are often discarded. I am breathing beauty and functionality back into this 'waste' and creating an opportunity for folks to utilize, study, and honor these natural pieces. Many of my…

I am breathing beauty and functionality back into this 'waste' and creating an opportunity for folks to utilize, study, and honor these natural pieces. Many of my bones are also collected during hikes and trips in surrounding forests, canyons, prairies, and foothills. These are typically advertised as "nature cleaned" specimens.

I do not buy/resell cleaned bones- I clean/preserve everything myself using gentle, natural methods. This is my full-time job and my only source of income, it's what I love to do and how I support myself. I am conscientious of my work and my sources, of my own habits and of the Earth.

Sometimes it may take a few days for me to respond to messages as I am usually extremely busy and travel often. I appreciate your patience and understanding with this. If you are looking for an item that I do not currently have available feel free to drop a line! Sometimes I might have just what you're looking for sitting on the shelf.
