Announcement   ★ WELCOME TO BONELUST - ETHICALLY SOURCED NATURAL HISTORY ART/JEWELRY, PET MEMORIAL SERVICES & CUSTOM JEWELRY/ART MADE FROM YOUR SUPPLIED TEETH (HUMAN OR PET ) ★

I've been collecting and processing bones and other things of nature for over 35 years. I've been making bone and taxidermy jewelry and art since the 1980s. And making real human teeth jewelry since the early 90s. For a long time I only made bone jewelry and natural history art for myself and friends. In 2008, I became unemployed at no fault of my own. Which lead me on my path to creating my BoneLust bone processing/collecting Blogspot and offering my jewelry and art for the first time to the public. Each piece is carefully made with love. Nothing is mass produced. I'm the only one doing everything BoneLust related.

CUSTOM ORDERS: I specialize in making custom jewelry and art with your supplied human teeth (adult and baby) and pet teeth. You can see my current options in my shop’s “Custom Order Options”. I also specialize in non-traditional pet memorial work - bone processing, dry preservation, memorial jewelry, etc. For more info please message me directly. thanks!


ABOUT THE BONES & OTHER ANIMAL BY-PRODUCTS USED IN MY PIECES:

I pride myself in NOT SUPPORTING industries that harm/kill animals and/or use their lives as profit. I do use bones that hunters have dumped. I live in a very rural/poor area and these hunters feed their families this way. While I myself do not even eat meat, beyond seafood (since 1993). My art is not about glorifying death but rather honoring and celebrating life. I would much rather see any of the animals, insects, plants used in my art alive.

99.9% of the bones/teeth used in my jewelry and art I've found. Then processed myself by the best means to provide you with a strong product that will last, and be sanitary to wear. I consider myself a professional as I've been collecting bones for 35 years now. I do not like waste and prefer to honor the lives of these animals in my art/jewelry. I never have nor ever will harm or kill an animal, insect or plant for my bone collection or for the bones used/sold here.

Bought this along with a deer skull, and I'm sooo pleased with both! They're beautifully and expertly made. I will definitely be buying more pieces to add to my collection.

I absolutely love it! It arrived super quickly and packaged nice and safe so nothing would break. The day it came it had to immediately go on my wall! I've already gotten nothing but compliments on it.

BoneLust is in my blood, falling back on what I know best... when I needed it most.

IMPORTANT SHIPPING, UPGRADE & INSURANCE INFO:

Most items are shipped either by Priority Mail or First Class. Shipping prices listed here within the US are estimated online. I am located in FL so I estimate my shipping fees by the furthest distance.

If you are in the US and want your order insured you HAVE TO purchase one of my insurance add on options using the "shipping options" drop down menu at the time of purchase. You will also find actual shipping upgrade options there. I am not responsible for packages once they are in the hands of the USPS, so please purchase one of my insurance listings if you have any concerns. Thanks for understanding!

PRE-ORDERS & CUSTOM ORDERS: Be sure you understand that by purchasing a pre-order or custom order listing from me your order will not be ready to ship for possibly as late as 4 weeks from your time of purchase. Or even longer during holiday seasons.

Additional policies and FAQs
QUESTIONS ANSWERED:

What's your metal made of?

Most of my metal findings used in my jewelry pieces are a raw brass based nickel free and lead free metal. Which are silver and brass plated. If I have options to choose from it will state so in the listing. When something is sterling silver, it will say so in the listing.

How can you make sure that something that is naturally preserved is really clean?

My pieces like that are in most cases professionally preserved. Meaning chemical preservatives were used to sanitize and preserve them to make them last. Sometimes they are inside a case instead of just free hanging if they were only naturally preserved. Meaning found dried by nature. There are little health concerns about any of my pieces by at the same time they are not mean to be worn by children. Never put my pieces in your mouth.

How do I care for your bone & taxidermy jewelry/art?

Most of my jewelry pieces are not meant to take heavy wear. They should not get wet or even be in high humidity areas. Do not clean or polish it as it can destroy it. Taxidermy art must be kept out of water, high humidity & direct sunlight.

What do you mean when you say you’re an ethical bone artist?
