I love this wrap/necklace. It is obvious that a lot of time went into making this beautiful - meaningful piece. A true treasure! It is more beautiful in person and looks great as a necklace and bracelet wrap. Very happy - and highly recommend. Wonderful, safe packing and fast shipping. A++ Thank you!

About

I am drawn to pieces that have a talisman vibe to them. As I collect them I turn them into wearable art.

I was a retail shop owner for 20 years, so having a shop is in my blood. When I closed my brick and mortar store I knew that Etsy was for me. I love the spirit of the artists helping each other to promote their work. I also do craft shows a few times a year. I love interacting with the people that attend and actually meeting the people who buy my jewelry. I really enjoy the process of finding the pieces that I choose. I feel like I am on a treasure hunt, like a hunter/gatherer. I also love the process of putting the pieces together. They speak to me and tell me how they should look. I like to use antique and vintage pieces that have a spiritual or talisman vibe to them because they have their own story and history, and you can see and feel that in the final product.
Most of the objects I find, I repurpose in to beautiful, unique pieces of jewelry. They are my Beloveds and Inspirations Collections. Sometimes the objects I find are perfect as they are. They are my Reliquary Collection. They are all one of a kind and very special.
To me, jewelry is much more than just a thing of beauty. I feel there is always some deeper meaning or sentiment behind the adornment. Each piece that I make reflects my sensibilities, while at the same time taps into the my devout respect and interest in the ancient civilizations who originally wore talismans as agents of power and change.
For thousands of years, amulets and different forms of found objects have been worn as jewelry to help protect, heal, and connect to the spiritual world.
People always ask me how I got the name, rabbits feathers & bone, so this is a good place to write it down. The explanation is complicated, and a lot of times I feel like people are sorry they asked. I tend to get very impassioned about it, and ramble a bit.
I decided to get serious about selling my work in 2011, in "The year of the rabbit". I love the significance of the Chinese calendar and the lucky symbolism of the rabbit. When I was a child I had a rabbits foot key chain, which seems really gross to me now, but at the time I considered it lucky and carried it with me at all times.
I also have always been drawn to the beauty of feathers and it astounds me that they actually come from an animal. I designed hats for a while and I think it was because I got to use so many feathers. Many cultures such as the Native Americans find feathers to be lucky and when one of my children finds a feather on the ground they feel like it is their lucky day. I also love the word "feather". How it looks and how it sounds.
Finally, Bone is what links most of us dwelling on this earth, together. Most living, breathing things are made of bone. It is also what remains. Many cultures use animal bone to make tools, beads, jewelry, etc. so it lives on once we are gone. I also love the word "bone". I love it's simplicity.

Welcome to Rabbits Feathers & Bone
My creations are one of a kind, usually rare and made with love and sweat. No tears. So not only will your piece make you feel beautiful, lucky and powerful, you will also feel unique. Keeping this in mind, if you fall in love with something, I do highly recommend purchasing it sooner rather than later, many things are known to get snatched out of peoples "watch list".

Read through my policies for questions on custom orders, shipping, refunds, etc.

I really pride myself on having superb customer service, and am always available for questions, concerns or complaints. Never hesitate to write me, no matter what it is! I will always respond, ASAP.

Shipping
--Each jewelry item is hand packaged in a beautiful gift pouch. If you need separate boxes (ie: gifts for more than one person) please contact me either right before or right after your purchase with this information. If the order will clearly not fit into one gift box, then I will use more than one with your larger purchase.

--I use USPS First Class mail for ALL orders (domestic and international), unless noted otherwise or discussed with the customer.

--If you wish to upgrade your shipping (to Priority or Express), I will do so for an added fee, please contact me PRIOR to paying for this upgrade.

--I ship to the address provided on ETSY. Please make sure this address is correct or contact me immediately if it is not.

--All orders ship MONDAY thru FRIDAYS. Please let me know in the MESSAGE TO SELLER or a message after your payment if you would like your package shipped immediately - I will make it work!

--I DO NOT ship on Saturdays or Holidays.

--Custom jewelry orders can take up to 2 weeks. I always keep in contact with my customers for custom orders, and you will be notified when I begin your order, when I'm finished, and when it is shipped. If I have to special order things for the order, I do notify you when I purchase and receive them.

--I recycle my packaging whenever I can. This is why some packages are taped a few times, or have snags or rips. I believe reusing packaging to cut down on the amount of trash that is produced is more important than just a pretty envelope. The package inside is always in a beautiful pouch and packed with care, love and attention.

--ALL orders over $150 will have a signature confirmation added, at no extra cost to you. Please make sure you or someone will be home during the day to sign for this, or be prepared to pick it up at the post office!

--ALL orders over $100 will have Shipping insurance added, at no extra cost to you.

--See next category for my policy on lost or damaged goods.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to truly love your item when you receive it. My pictures are always as detailed as possible, colors can vary between monitors.

If your item is lost in the mail please contact us. We would need to wait 3 weeks for the USA mail and at least 6 weeks for international mail. After that time we will offer a FULL refund if it has not been found. However, after over two years shipping Internationally this has happened to us only once, so no worries.

If for some reason ( these pieces are all hand made ) the item breaks we will fix it , free of charge, for 3 months after purchase. After that there would be a fee dependent on the piece. You would just have to ship it back to us.
These pieces are NOT meant to be submerged in water. Being caught in the rain isn't a problem, but I DO NOT recommend showering or swimming with them.

I try my absolute best to include photos for size, and describe measurements in inches and centimeters in my descriptions. Understand that colors can vary from monitor to monitor. However, if you are totally unsatisfied with your purchase, and not in love with it, you can return or exchange your item within 5 days of receiving your item. After that we can not make any returns.

All sale items and items purchased with a coupon code are final sale and there will be no exceptions.

Please, if any of the above happens, contact me PRIOR to leaving feedback to work it out:
CONTACT: http://www.etsy.com/conversations/new?with_id=18790723
Additional policies and FAQs
I love making custom pieces. If you see something you love but would like to tweak it, please feel free to contact me. I can use different beads, elements, etc. and will also do custom lengths.

We would be willing to put any item on layaway ( it's a great way to buy something you love! No finance charges! )and would just need 50% down and you would have a month to pay it off. If, after the month the item is not paid in full we will put the item back in stock and you will loose the whole deposit.

I am willing to sell to brick and mortar boutiques and would discuss wholesale prices for purchasing quantity. Please contact me at lbmccann [!at] gmail.com.

All through? Head back to my store for the good stuff - shopping!
