Da Bull — $15o
Our items sell fast! Please visit our Etsy site to see similar creations for sale on-line.>>



You've got it made - this beautiful necklace in braided smoke colored deerskin has gotten its name from the little bronze bull I sculpted.

Someone very special once told me 'For you-I kill da Bull' meaning that he would do anything for me...*sigh* so romantic;

I am SO not for bullfighting, but this necklace evokes romance from times past. And a fondness for nature.

I braided smoke-colored doeskin to a lariat that buttons with an oxidized silver heart and looped a hand drilled and carved elk antler ring under the heart.

From the ring I suspended my sculpted bronze amulettes and a carved piece of coconut shell.

The bronze is made from BRONZclay, brand new eco-conscious technology made from recycled copper (bronze is a combination of mostly copper and a little bit of tin) and tin and binder that was shaped and hand-carved and then made into solid bronze by firing in active carbon for many, many hours, just like out of the ashes in Pompeji. The patina is natural and can be polished off to reveal shining bronze if you wish ...very cool!

The lariat fits similar to a 24" necklace.

Love un etat d'esprit mask— $15o

un état d'esprit-masque (a state of mind-mask)

J'étais dans une de ces forêts où le soleil n'a pas accès mais où, la nuit, les étoiles pénètrent.
[I was in one of those forests (where) the sun does not access, but where, at night, the stars enter]. René Char Pénombre

I sculpt at twilight, the enchanting time of the day when my studio glows from sunlight diffused through fairie dust.

Music fills the air as my hands seek their shape within.

Submerged in carbon and fired until dawn then hand polished to a luminous shine - ready to face our world for the first time each mask finds its name symbolizing one of the many states of the human mind.


When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace. Jimi Hendrix.


An amazing mask. I made her face 3" long and 1.5" wide in bronze with gold /violet/rust/ochre patina.

The inside of the face is truly amazing on this one, reminds me of an open mind glass by Ulrika Hydman-Vallien. Strong passionate colors, perfect match with the word.


A little hole was drilled so you can wear the mask, and comes with a display stand, too.

Collect a few and display them together....

Extra beautiful next to driftwood...

Eco friendly bronze, copper from scrap copper.

Ships the world for free, neatly tucked into eco friendly materials.
