~Claws, Teeth & Bones~
Across human story, claws, teeth, bones and other animal remains have traditionally been worn to showcase a variety of things. One’s hunting prowess, social standing, medicinal knowledge, or place of origin could be assessed before a single word was spoken during an interaction. Nowadays, the wearing of these materials has become mostly symbolic. We’d like to think of wearing these materials as a form of respect paid to the animals for their contributions to our world, and serve as a potent reminder of the lessons that each being teaches us.
"The quiet power that created progress for humanity." Wood is one of the most versatile, essential, and sacred substances of our whole existence. Without fire, oxygen, and shelter, there would be no "us". Humans have been utilizing wood since the earliest recognition that we could make use of the materials around us. From utensils, furniture, tools, weapons, and means of transportation, wood has surely played a prominent role in our human evolution, although humans aren't the only ones to appreciate and adopt wood into its existence. Many animals and insects find homes and hideouts within these natural abodes, as well as a large variety of fungus thriving on nothing more but the decaying titans of the forest. To some, different types of wood hold unique masculine or feminine energies with different types of magic properties. For example, Applewood holds a feminine energy and promotes peace, harmony, and the appearance of spiritual visions, while hickory wood holds a masculine energy and promotes leadership skills, wholeness, and a sense of direction.
A chain is a strong connection from one thing to another allowing it to be an excellent symbol of unity and connectedness.
DISCLAIMER: Any and all animal specimens that we use in our designs are ethically sourced, either found in nature predeceased by natural causes or sourced from an ethical handler. WE NEVER HARM OR KILL ANIMALS FOR THE SAKE OF OUR ART. The purpose of including animal remains in our designs is to honor the animal's being and speak upon the lessons they teach us in life.
After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in a design. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it's preserved & sealed to ensure its longevity & protection.
