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!

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'd be grateful to anyone who would be willing to take the time to pass this along to anyone who might be interested--I've made this post public. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!)

Canine Series
Sirius - Pagan-themed. Made with black leather cord, two domestic dog teeth, and six authentic ancient Egyptian faience beads from 716-30 B.C. The two dog teeth represent the binary star-system Sirius. The pendant itself is made in dedication to Wepwawet and Yinepu. $25

Necromancy - Dark brown leather cord, antique water buffalo bone hoop. The skull is also an antique, and possibly carved from the same animal. The black choker bead is India camel-bone, the bead below it is probably water buffalo. With the exception of the camel-bead and leather cord, all components are made of antique trade material from Asia. $20

Three Random Things - Left to right:
Libyan desert glass, with wire-wrap for pendant: $15
Antique Black Forest boar-bristle charm (circa 1940s): $20
Antique Black Forest rabbit-toe charm (circa 1940s): $25

PayPal. Money orders. Just ask.

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.

There will be more stuff from my collection needing homes, I just have to sort through things. Dog tooth pendants will be $10. Prices include shipping. I can take PayPal. Just ask. Also, feel free to spread around to anyone else interested.

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.
