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.


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.

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.

This post is public, so any help with advertising or passing around would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

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.

Version 2 Slot List:
1. [livejournal.com profile] nezuchan - Paid
2. [livejournal.com profile] technocowboy - Paid
3. [livejournal.com profile] innowen - Paid

I also have available a larger coyote totem bottle with attached tooth, and filled to the brim with fur and two foot bones.

I also have five slots for bigger bottles.

1. [livejournal.com profile] faycequevoudras - Money Order - Paid

Thanks to everyone who commented and showed interest! The coyotes thank you too!

First: 5 coyote-tooth pendants are available for anyone who makes a donation to help the people of rural Alaska. These people really need our help, as well as the people working towards bringing this injustice to light.

Coyote-tooth slots
Tooth #1: [livejournal.com profile] fleetfoot77
Tooth #2: [livejournal.com profile] graymary
Tooth #3: [livejournal.com profile] quorpencetta
Tooth #4:
Tooth #5:

Second: I'm also offering dog-tooth pendants for $10 including shipping. I have five available so far (but I can make more). Proceeds will go towards The Montana English Shepherd rescue effort. [livejournal.com profile] christinemis keeps detailed info on it in her own personal journal. The rest will go towards my travel fund for Germany visitations and such. Future proceeds for these will probably go to the ASPCA. Right now the NESR could use the support. I will not be donating to the Humane Society of the United States due to some good points that [livejournal.com profile] christinemis pointed out.

Drop me a line at cynanthropos(at)gmail(dot)com for any other details. Thanks.

First, read this post about the crisis situation in Alaska: Native Alaskans freezing and starving, yet no one seems to be listening.

I'm really short on money right now, the holiday season combined with the closings of several work centers put a lot of us out of work for the entire period. I have little I can spare right now, so here's my plan instead:

I have five remaining coyote-tooth pendants. They look similar to the dog-tooth pendants I've been making. Black hemp cord, coyote canine, and a small wooden bead pinching the coyote tooth in place. I will give one of these pendants to anyone who clicks the link above and donates $10 (or more, if you desire) via the PayPal link in the article. Just send me an email (cynanthropos@gmail.com) with some kind of donation proof, and an address you want the pendant sent to. Shipping's on me.

Thanks in advance.
