The dog tooth beads came in bulk from China--probably leftover from the food industry. I compose my stuff from a collection of trade beads, antiquities and other curiosities. My sources are all people and places which are reliable and knowledgeable, and when appropriate, provenance will be given.
I am an animist, and I incorporate my practices and belief in my work, being attracted to the natural and the antique. Some of the items I've made things with are very old, and have been around for a long time.
Funds from purchases will go towards paying off bills and debt, so I can move in with my fiancee in Germany. Unfortunately, the U.S. does not at this time recognize our relationship
, leaving me to go into exile in order for us to be together. We'll need all the help we can get in making this possible. Proceeds from the sale of all animal products will go to nonprofits dedicated to animal rescue, or wildlife conservation.
