How BossHunts Came to Be

I have always loved animals and art. I spent several years working on reptiles farms and took care of some many different species from geckos to monitor lizards to chameleons. Of everything though, the majority of my work centered around snakes. I always thought it was interesting that many snakes' patterns are still visible in their sheds and started wondering if there was a way to display these. After research and experimentation I started making jewelry!

I showed them off to friends and family and they were a big hit so I decided to try my hand at selling them. Naturally when I began selling on Etsy I had to find a way to incorporate my beloved dogs, Boston and Hunter, and decided to name my shop after them.

Eventually I had to stop my animal work due to having to move for my husband's job and I definitely miss the animals. Luckily between my pets and contacts in the industry giving me sheds, I can still be connected to what I loved doing through my jewelry.

Now I am making more and more that I am proud of and have expended to making other types of art and using more resources found in nature. I'm even hesitant to sell many of these pieces because I absolutely love how they turned out! I have greatly enjoyed perfecting my craft and love to hearing about how much my customers enjoy their purchases.

Avoid exposing any items to extreme temperatures or water. None of my items are tested for temperature or waterproofing. Use a dry cloth to clean surfaces.

How are your materials obtained?

BossHunts is most known for jewelry featuring snake sheds which allows for beautiful pieces to be made without harming the snakes the shed comes from.

I like to make products with bugs, bones, or other specimens when I find them already deceased. Nothing is killed, injured, stressed, or otherwise harmed to make BossHunts' jewelry. One the rare occasion there should be an item in which my materials are obtained in a different way, that information will be made clearly available in the specific listing. Cases like these include bones from hunters or specimens from old collections that are being sold off.

Custom items may be made from snake sheds, insects, bones, etc. that a customer is already in possession of.

Shipping

In the interest of being as environmentally friendly as possible, I ship orders using as much reused packaging as possible. This includes cutting down larger boxes to make smaller ones.

I am not responsible for lost or stolen packages and unfortunately cannot do free replacements in these situations.

Once your order has been delivered to the carrier I can no longer do anything about shipping times. I ship with USPS but please let me know if you require a different shipper at the time of purchase and I will be happy to accommodate. I cannot change shippers after the item has been sent out so make sure to inform me ASAP!
