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

BoneLust is over 10 years old now, thanks for your support! I've been collecting and processing bones and other things of nature for over 35 years. I've been making natural history jewelry and art since the 1980s. And making real human teeth jewelry since the early 90s. For a long time I only made these things 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” section. 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 learning these skills for over 35 years now. I choose 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.

You have 30 days from the time of purchase to contact me for any refunds or replacements of your order. Some of my items can not replaced as supplies are very limited because of the found nature of my natural history supplies.
Shipping
IMPORTANT SHIPPING, UPGRADE & INSURANCE INFO:

Most items are shipped either by First Class or Priority Mail. Shipping prices listed here within the US are estimated online. Most items DO NOT include insurance. I will NOT be refunding or replacing items that are lost or damaged during shipment. You are expected to purchase insurance upgrades at checkout if you have concerns.

IN STOCK ORDERS - In stock orders are shipped 3 to 7 business days from the time I receive the order.

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 weeks to months from your time of purchase. Read that info in the related listing.

INSURANCE & SHIPPING UPGRADES - Insurance and shipment upgrades can be made at checkout for US residents, if available for that item. You can purchase one of my insurance or shipping upgrade options using the "shipping options" drop down menu at the time of purchase. 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!

Some items ship with insurance included but most do not, please read the listing for that item's shipping info.

US RESIDENTS, TRACK YOUR SHIPMENT - When your order ships you are sent tracking info via Etsy. I do not track orders to be sure they arrive. Once shipped, orders are completely out of my hands and in charge of the USPS. I can not tell you anything about your order that you can not already see yourself by clicking on the tracking number in your shipping confirmation. If you do not receive your package in the approximate shipping time you need to contact your local US Post Office right away with your tracking number or call 1-800-USPS! Especially if your tracking info says it was delivered. The longer you wait the less chances you will locate your order if it was mis-delivered.

Additional policies and FAQs
QUESTIONS ANSWERED:

What's your metal made of?

Most of my metal findings and chains 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.

HUMAN TEETH INFO:

”Where do you get your human teeth?"
"How can they be legal for you to have?"
"Are they black market sourced?"
“Why would anybody need teeth?”
"Aren't they unsanitary?"
"Can I buy them from you?"
"Will you buy my teeth?"

I get a ton of questions about my human teeth so I'm just going to try to answer them all at once. First off, just consider me the tooth fairy. I'm always looking for human teeth. Flea markets, antique shops, etc. It is a hard & pricy supply to locate.

The human teeth I get are mostly pulled molars and family heirlooms from right here in the US. No chance of them being acquired through sketchy black market organ harvesting sources. Or prisons. I hear all kinds of ridiculous theories. But the truth is, they were all legally pulled from a live person by a dental professional. Or naturally fell out in the case of baby teeth. These teeth are completely legal for me to have and sell.

Dental students need them. Those that collect natural history items want them for their collection. I have parents frequently contact me needing them for school assignments. Artists want them for projects. Recently I had a museum contact me needing them for a piece of theirs. Just some of the many reasons someone might want human teeth.

I sanitize them just like all of the animal bone/teeth used in my pieces. So they are totally safe to handle/wear. I sometimes will give shop credit for customer supplied teeth.

 Yes, you can buy teeth collections in my shop.

I do offer custom jewelry pieces using your supplied teeth. Listings are already in my shop. My many real human teeth art & jewelry pieces can already be found for sale at Bonelust.Etsy.Com

CARE INFO - 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. Do not let them bang on hard surface or you chance cracking glass, bone and teeth or breaking them free of their settings.

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, or let animals chew on them. Never put my pieces in your mouth.
