About

Ancestral heritage forms recreated in contemporary materials

This shop has grown out of the work started in my other Etsy shop which didn't seem to fit with the collection of rope bracelets. Here at ArtifactSite are all the "other" things. These pieces are inspired by the forms found in heritage cultures. Our ancestors invented modes of adornment and expression using local materials and simple techniques available to them. Their aesthetics often emphasize and exaggerate human form. Their materials were plant and animal products.

The process of re-creating these pieces is equally simple and direct. The materials are modern synthetics, metal, fiber, glass, and plastics. Each object is handmade using simple tools. I don't use animal products except for some leather in a few pieces which are clearly labeled in the listings.

If you see something you like and need a size change or a design adjustment please contact me. Custom work is available to satisfy your imagination.

If you order a custom item or request a batch order and pay for it I will commit resources and time to your work. If later you decide to cancel or substantially modify the order, I will determine adjustments to price and delivery dates possible based on the status of the work.
