How do we get our bones?
We get our bones in a number of different ways but all of them must be ethical, sustainable and legal.
Some ways we get bones:
Road Kill, Railroad Tracks, Hunter Dumps
Trouncing about in the Woods or other parts of nature allows us to find animals that died naturally
Trades or gifts. (We only do this with other reputable scavengers. Usually we know them personally!)
Luck. Sometimes we just stumble across something. We keep gloves and bags on hand all of the time just in case. :)
We don't hunt, trap or hurt any animals EVER! We also never purchase our bones in order to prevent perpetuating further killing of animals for profit.
Same goes for our feathers, hair, fur etc. Everything comes from no kill/rescue farms, naturally shed, roadkill, second hand, or trade.
How do we process and clean them?
Bone cleaning a huge part of our work and the most time consuming. Each piece of jewelry that have bone in them is technically about half a year in the making!
We try to keep everything as natural as possible with no harsh chemicals. We even water our plants with the maceration water and reuse the soil from the decomposition pots. Our plants LOVE it!

Why we do this?
Without getting too emotional about anything, basically we really love mother nature and everything in it. To see so much life getting destroyed constantly without thought is heartbreaking. If we can give back by picking up a discarded and forgotten sentient soul and honor its existence by creating something beautiful and bringing it to the attention of others, then that is what we will do. <3
We are always keeping up to date with what is legal and what isn't when it comes to animal remains and feathers. If you have any questions about anything you see in our shop or on our pages, just shoot us a message!
OR if there is something you have and would like more information on it. Just send us a message and we would love to help!
