Over at [livejournal.com profile] artcommissions: Wolf totem bottles made from raw wolf fur, and wolfdog pendants featuring wolf fur and fossil sled dog teeth

Over at [livejournal.com profile] furhideandbone: random last minute sale of miscellaneous supplies

Trying to bring up a little extra money before leaving the country. Between Tango's medical bills and my own, I could certainly use a little extra.

Oh also, one more bit of art I screwed around with:

Coyote totem bottle pendant, Mark II )

Tooth or fang-shaped vial stuffed full of raw coyote fur and hermetically-sealed, with real coyote tooth on black leather cord with wooden spacer bead. For sale, $12.50 via PayPal only at this time. I need to get everything in the mail before Friday the 4th.

Thanks, everyone!

They are going to look just like this, only with a real lynx claw instead of a tooth, and cat hair in the bottle. The lynx claw will look similar to the one featured in this piece. All of this strung on a leather cord, with brown wooden focal bead.

I would like to take the time now to introduce you to my partner in this venture, and fur donor Merlin:
Click for Merlin )

Merlin was a rescue kitty, some years back. His previous owner was going to euthanize him unless someone took him. Merlin also sheds like crazy, so I decided to put his hair to good use, spread the word. Portion of proceeds from the sales of these pendants will go to a feline no-kill shelter in the area where I live (there are a great many, due to the close proximity of the city from where I live, and the sheer number of strays).

I'm asking $10 each, price includes shipping. I'll take 4 slots.

Slots:
1.
2.
3.
4.

This post is public so feel free to spread the word.

Note that there is also still room for more Corvid Wallhangings, if people are still interested and would like to sign up.

Okay, here's the deal. They'll end up looking something like this, depending on the species. Two wings, with skull and deerskin loop for hanging. Made for totemic or animistic work.

Categories will show what I have available right now, and slots. $30 for each, price includes shipping within the U.S. For international folk, feel free to poke me about it. Estimated time frame for completion of commissions to be around mid to end of July. Payment will be due when the project is completed, but those interested are welcome to reserve their space now.

Note that I will not work with protected species (such as birds listed under the MBTA, the UK's Wildlife and Countryside Act, or CITES). What is reflected above is what I currently have available or is easily obtainable to me. None of what I obtain has ever been killed specifically for my art. I scavenge everything I have, and if they didn't come into my hands they'd be sitting in a landfill, rotting, or picked apart for fly tying. I donate a portion of proceeds from the sale of whatever I make to wildlife groups, namely Defenders of Wildlife, but I've been considering donating to the Audubon Society as of late as well.

Anyway, comment away if interested, and thank you. I should also note that this is also a part of an avian pathworking I've been doing...I find it interesting that the animal remains I seem to work closely with are canid and corvid (both are seen frequently together in the wild cooperating for food), or dog and bird (Yinepu and Djehuty, anyone?). The irony is not lost on me, and this was never originally an intentional pairing. Ha!

Glass bottle with cork, stuffed with raw shed coyote fur from the Indiana Coyote Rescue Center. Wire-wrapped and strung on a brown leather cord with wooden spacer bead and real coyote tooth.

I have one available on my Etsy shop here for immediate purchase. But I can make seven more of these, as I have seven more coyote teeth left in my horde. I'm asking $9.00 altogether, price includes shipping (PayPal, money order).

As always, portion of proceeds from the sale of these will go to the coyotes at the rescue center who donated their fur.

(My notes also in post on progress of order..."COMPLETED" meaning the pendant is complete, "SHIPPED" meaning...well you get the idea by now.)

Thanks a lot! This post is public, so reposting is most appreciated.

Now...going to faceplant myself into bed. I've had my art therapy for tonight to help get over the stressful day, and I'll answer to any orders (if any) tomorrow.

I think my next little fundraiser might be a combination honorary working for my Patron as well as raising money for ImmigrationEquality. How fitting too, to give to an organization who fights to open the way for so many people? Including my fiancee and I.

I'm thinking...I have a number of old real Egyptian faience beads. I have dog teeth. I have a wolf claw. I already made something incorporating faience beads and dog teeth here, which hasn't sold yet (then again, I haven't put it up on my store site, either).

I think I like this idea, but I'd be interested in hearing what others think of this, too.

Pardon the shitty iPhone pics. I really need to get my camera software worked out.

Materials: Small glass bottle, stuffed with real raw coyote fur and a coyote knuckle bone, corked with a real coyote claw attached on a black hemp cord.

The coyote fur is real, raw shed fur from living coyotes at the Indiana Coyote Rescue Center. If you uncork the bottle and take a sniff, you'll smell real, live coyote. The fur has been stored in a freezer beforehand to kill off germs.

I can make four more of these in this same style (but I have a decent amount of fur and other materials). I'm asking $5.50 for each, price includes shipping within the U.S., and proceeds from sale will go to the rescue center. I can do PayPal or money order.

EDIT 4/24, 10:30AM: A strike indicates and order filled, and is mostly for my records.

Slots:
1. [livejournal.com profile] corvithrope - Paid

EDIT: Slots are full! I can make up to three more little bottles, but I am out of claws! If you wouldn't mind a substitute for a claw (another bone, tooth, etc.), leave a comment! I can take three more.
