I suppose I started making jewelry out of shed wolf hair roughly 8 years ago when I was working at Mission:Wolf in Colorado.
I wasn't very good at it at first but I've come a long way and it shows in the quality of my wares. I enjoy crafting them but most of all, I enjoy sharing them with people I know will like them. The biggest reward is the person's delight.

Unfortunately, I've come to a time in my life where I need to make less jewelry and focus on my career in massage therapy. I'll be licensed in about one more month. I can't wait to start working and making a figure I can comfortably live off of for a change. That, and I truly enjoy it. But I've had to look at a lot of things I do differently too.

Making jewelry takes a very long time and it hurts my hands. It might take me around five hours of solid work to be able to complete a single bracelet or twelve hours for a necklace and yet I've only been selling them for $80 for a bracelet and $200 for a necklace on average. I don't want to stop making jewelry all together but I also need to ensure that I can focus on massage and take better care of my hands.

That being said, you will notice an increase in my prices and I will only be taking commissions by request. On the upside, you might see me at a lot of furry conventions setup with my massage chair and table! It's been a huge goal of mine once I graduate to get a job and work at cons where I can meet like-minded people. I've got a whole bunch of plans and am very excited to put them into motion here in the next six months or so. :D (Big Grin)

Not sure what else to say or how to wrap this up so I'll just wish you all a wonderful day and hope to see you at some conventions soon!

O.O Love your fur bracelets, they're very pretty and unique! Didn't realize it was real fur. Do you make the fur in to yarn yourself or something or how do you include fur in them? Just curious! I have some shed rabbit fur but I guess it's too short anyway to make yarn out of it. :P

Anyway, wonderful job you're doing! Always loved hand-made jewellery. :) When I have the means, I'm definitely ordering something from you!

Thank you! ^^
Yes, I spin the fur into yarn and then fold it a few times to make it strong and pretty. :3
If it's thick and wooly rabbit hair, you could probably spin with it. ;3
