After about a year of being on indefinite hiatus, I'm in the process of doing a complete overhaul of this shop.

    I'm an eclectic craftsman with a deep love for the odd and original. I was blessed with an awesome mom who was both open minded and endlessly creative so I grew up encouraged to get messy and try everything at least twice.

Shop policies

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Money Order
  • Check
While I'd much prefer PayPal payment, I'm definitely willing to make exceptions. If the only way you can pay is just cash in an envelope, I'll take that. It might take a bit longer for everything to go through if you send a check/money order, but either way, I'll get it to you.

If you're going to be cancelling something, it should be done as soon as possible, because I'd like to get things shipped ASAP. I've had to wait weeks for something in the mail before, and I'd like to avoid putting anyone else through that if I can.
Items will be shipped out as soon as possible (usually within 2-3 days, absolutely under a week).

I ship all items first class, but if you want expedited or a different shipping just contact me and we can work something out.

I do ship internationally with the exception of the bone pieces. Some countries don't allow foreign animal products, or have very strict (or confusing as hell) policies. I'm trying to do as much research on this as possible to see where is safe to ship to, but I can only do so much as one person. Sincere apologies for this, I know how much it seriously sucks.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you need to return something, whether you're unhappy with it or something wasn't right with it, please try to contact me within 48 hours of receiving it. I make it a point to keep an eye on the tracking myself as well and almost always check with the customer once it arrives to make sure it wasn't damaged, lost or otherwise not quite right. Full refunds on any returned items, shipping costs non-refundable.

If you'd like to return something as an exchange (not quite right, wrong size, I screwed up, want something of a similar/same price) the only cost for that is shipping.

If an item gets lost in the mail and makes its way back to me instead of you, I will send it out again (after contacting you to try and figure out what went wrong) for no extra charge.

If there's anything I haven't covered here that you're concerned or unsure of, feel free to message me at any time. I check my email entirely more often than necessary so I'll see it probably within hours, one day at the absolute most.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are absolutely welcome, just shoot me a message with what you've got in mind and we can figure out where to go from there. You'll be charged for the final product, period. Not rough drafts, not preliminary attempts, just the final, finished piece.
