Another fact to note is that these bones/feathers and furs are cleaned and sanitized before use, i also personally stain majority of these bones with various herbs and teas to keep the natural aesthetic.

All leathers and furs are also acquired the same way, through secondhand sources.

- 90% of beads and mismatched findings are either scavenged from thrift shops, garage sales, antique stores, second hand craft stores, trades with customers/fellow creators or broken jewelry.
* i do purchase chains, clasps, certain stones and spacer beads from suppliers*

All wire work and wire bases are hand created and hammered, so no 2 pieces will ever be the same.

I am a firm believer in the recreation and reanimation of materials that would otherwise be discarded or deemed "unusable". I utilize these materials in hopes of rekindling our lost connection with nature and the wild world.

If you have any questions about a certain piece of jewelry or curious about preservation techniques/ processes i personally use, feel free to ask : )

All woodburnt plaques, pendants and boxes are results of my husbands creativity.
The wooden pieces come from a variety of places including, scrap bins, second hand craft stores, antique shops, garage sales, local craft stores, gifts etc.
All pyrography is done by hand therefor if you have a specific request for a name or design, we are happy to work with you.


I have a blog where you can see my latest scavenges, projects and get to see behind the scenes of our little business.
