Heart-full collections for forest ramblers

Little Bone Collector is a collection of fibre + found object jewellery to nurse your odd streak and warm your heart.

Every piece exists to bring something beautiful into the world. I'm passionate about sharing the hidden charm of found objects and natural, touchable materials like cotton, wood, stone, shells, and of course - bone.

    Since my mother taught me to crochet, it's been my medium of choice. Crochet is my tool & my passion, letting me build my own Cabinet of Curiosities and share it with the world through Little Bone Collector.

Returns and exchange details
If a piece arrives to you broken, damaged, incomplete or clearly different to what was described or displayed on Etsy, you are more than welcome to a refund of your purchase and shipping costs, or to have any missing parts sent to you for free.

If you'd like a replacement item instead, I'll send it to you for free. (You only pay one set of shipping costs!)

I'm normally unable to ship items on any other days, so please leave enough delivery time or choose Express Post if you have a deadline.

I'm not responsible for the delivery of the item once it's been posted, so please select an appropriate upgrade (Registered, Signature on Delivery or Express Post) for important deliveries.

If your country has strict quarantine or customs laws (eg. New Zealand), please research your country's regulations before purchasing a shell, bone, tooth or other animal by-product item.

- For jewellery items, I'm happy to sell to any country as the item is packaged and presented as costume jewellery, however you do take the risk that it will be inspected and confiscated by your own customs.

- For larger bones, I may only sell to particular countries that I know allow you to import these items. If I haven't listed your country and you believe there'll be no problem (or you have a permit), please don't hesitate to get in touch!

You're responsible for paying any import taxes or duties, which you should check before purchasing anything online.

I will not mark any purchase as a "Gift" on the Customs declaration form.

Frequently asked questions
Australian law & animal by-products

I only work with animal by-products from feral/livestock/domestic species, such as wild dog, pig, goat, cow, rabbit etc. The parts I use from these animals are legal to possess, process and sell, as well as to export without requiring a permit.

Although we do have industries producing kangaroo skins or emu oil (and these can be exported), the average person is not allowed to collect, possess, process or sell native animals or animal parts.
