Hello! Welcome to my little shop, Layne Mikesell : Handmade. All my items are handmade using upcycled and/or relatively inexpensive materials, but I believe in craftsmanship and you should never be dissatisfied with your item, so with that in mind I try to keep my prices as low as possible so you can still afford to buy handmade!

All animal parts come from friends, family members or taxidermists. The deer and boar pieces are leftover parts from my Uncle Don who hunts them, we eat what we can, freeze what we can't for later, and the heads are mounted giving me free reign over the skulls and bones. If it hasn't been hunted and used in that manner it is most likely roadkill that I skin/cure/mummify/etc... Because the items are all handmade and are actual animal parts there will be variations in texture and color, please keep this in mind when purchasing. I have a keen eye for detail and I do not sell items that aren't on par with my own standards. The photographs of my items are as true to life as possible so there shouldn't be any surprises when you receive your item (except for how awesome it is).

I DO NOT USE REAL GOLD. Any items that are described as 'gold' are gold in color. You get what you pay for. I try to use brass for everything as to keep overhead low. I do not recommend wearing anything purchased from my shop in water, to the gym, etc... basically if it gets wet it will tarnish but there are simple ways to clean up tarnish that you can search for online.

Additional policies and FAQs
Thank you for taking a look at my shop and I hope you find something you like!

PLEASE REMEMBER: THESE ARE, IN MOST CASES, REAL PRESERVED ANIMAL BONES, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT THEY ARE NOT HANDLED IN A ROUGH MANNER, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY THAT THEY DO NOT GET WET IF IT CAN BE AVOIDED!!!

I DO NOT BLEACH my bones, and for your own resourcefulness never use bleach on bones or teeth as it breaks down the bone and eventually turns them to bone meal. I use hydrogen peroxide which takes out all the nasty stuff and just leaves the natural colors of the bone and/or teeth. Bigger bones are sealed, teeth are polished but not sealed.
