Frequently asked questions

No! Everything we make is one-of-a-kind. Also, due to the nature of what I make, it would be very difficult to come across some of the materials more than once. But I do accept custom orders and would love to make something unique just for you!


Yes! I would love to collaborate with you to make you something that you really love. But keep in mind that I may not always have certain pieces of nature available since I scavenge everything.

All custom mask orders require a $50.00 down payment before I can get started and the turn around time is usually 3 to 8 weeks depending on my schedule.

If you would like to place a custom order, just shoot me a message!


I would love to make you a custom jewelry piece! If you have materials that you would like me to include, that is wonderful and I would love to make you something special out of it!

As for remaking a past piece, I very rarely make anything exactly the same and it depends on what materials I have available. Most of what I use is recycled or found and I don't usually have the same thing twice.

If you want to me use specific animal bones, it really depends on what I have since I only use what I can find when I scavenged. If you already have certain bones, send them on over and I can make you something nice! However, I refuse to work with illegal or unethical bones for obvious reasons.


I am a one-woman-show and all of my masks are made entirely from scratch. The mask shell itself can take 2-3 weeks to dry before I can even get started on painting and decorating.


No. Due to the nature of the process that I use, it would be next to impossible for me to capture you face like they do with plaster molds. Each mask is made from a very basic positive mold and I sculpt each face individually without references so that each face is unique!


Mask and crown care is relatively easy. Every bit of nature is preserved and you do not have to worry about it browning, rotting, drying out, dying, etc.

Since the mask is essentially paper mache, don't put it in an overly moist environment, such as the bathroom, and keep it inside. But other than that, the masks are quite durable and can handle most environments.

To cleanse it's aura, you can set it in the sun for a while (not all the time since the sun can bleach out the colors) or give it a good smudging. :)
