The virus scare has me holed up in Tucson at my 'snowbird,' home. I have a lot of materials and art with me. My big seller is mammoth ivory and have taht here and doing well selling to my regulars who are holed up in their shops creating! I have someone at hoe in Alaska who can fill my orders from there. Written end of March.
Tucson fossil show is over, had a record good show. I invested much of my profits into more 'high end' inventory then ever before. Several opals in the $1,000 range I look forward to creating more high end finished art from. Lots of top turquoise and crystals, some I may offer raw, much turned into art. I traded with Russian friends for Siberian bark mammoth ivory so have a lot to create knife scales from, and expect to offer raw. Look for all this in the near future.
The main headings above (example Raw materials from Alaska) will give general idea what can be expected, how I do it, where I get ideas materials etc Like what kind of knife steel I prefer, why and how I harden them, or where I find most of my fossils, where local rocks come from, source of wood, process for stabilizing so you have background info is you want to know.
Dropdown headings on categories above are links to product (example Art pendants under Art )
Shipping done through Pay Pal, flat rate priority usually takes 4-5 days anyplace in the US. Note- I am a one man show, and am at the source, out remote. Communication not as reliable as in the city. I could also be out on a fossil hunt for a few days ,so understand potential delays. Email me if each day matters. Good news is good prices! I charge only actual shipping costs, not intended to be part of my profit!
A note. I had another web site for many years, fairly large! Now forwarded to here, changing it's look, adding new features, building it up, so if you recall my previous site, this is still me, you are not lost! But note new web address and email. After 20 years, time for a change and upgrade. Might take time to get more product here! (stupid computers!)
