I Am Open for Custom Work!

Over the years I have been asked to create a variety of custom pieces. These have ranged everywhere from wall hangings unique to the buyer to one of a kind leather and fur pouches, and then some! Plus further down the page you'll see some projects that I can pretty easily customize. Here are a few things to keep in mind when requesting custom work:

What do I want (pouch, bone knife, antler runes/ogam, etc?)
How much do I want to pay? (This is VERY important, as it gives me an idea of how elaborate I can get and what sort of materials I can use. Also, I can suggest certain options for slightly higher or lower price brackets.)
What do I want it made of?
What size do I want the project to be?
What colors do I want incorporated?
What other decorations do I want?
Is there a particular theme/animal/etc. I want?
Do I have a particular timeframe or deadline I need this by?

If interested, please feel free to note me! More information on custom work can be found here:…


United States
Yes, I AM open for commissions! Note me with your ideas and requests! Specializing in making vague ideas turn into very real art :)

No, I do not hunt these animals myself. Most of what I work with is recycled or reclaimed in some manner; I ritually purify everything I make as part of my neoshamanic practice, and I donate part of the proceeds to nonprofit groups that benefit wildlife and their habitats.

I'm an artist, nonfic author, and wannabe polymath living in Portland, OR. I'm a neoshaman and neopagan, geeky, and outdoorsy. I make stuff out of animal remains, beads, and other such things as part of my spiritual practice (and FWIW, I am 100% European mutt, so none of my work can be considered Native American). I'm also entirely self-taught; I took a few art classes in high school and college, but they were really basic and dealt more with traditional media like painting and drawing.

I sell most of what I make; if you're interested in what's currently available, please wander over to (you can also find my books on pagan and magical topics there, too!)

I created :iconnothingbuttails: and :iconpaganritualtools:.

Personal Quote: Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
I'm getting ready to go vend at FaerieWorlds (woohoo!!!!) but I wanted to leave you with my most recent podcast inteview. The good folks at Everyday Connection have just released our conversation from earlier this month--and is it a good one! We talk a great deal about ecological issues, particularly as they pertain to food and other immediate needs, but we also take some time to touch on my artwork and other creative efforts, too. A nice, gently rambling discussion that you can listen to at…

If I were to offer workshops (for a reasonable fee) online, such as on Second Life or a chatroom, what of the following topics would interest you the most? (Am also planning in-person workshops here in Portland.) 

34 deviants said Individual topic workshops on animal totemism and other animal spirits/spirituality
28 deviants said Individual topic workshops on skin spirits and spiritual work with animal parts
19 deviants said Ongoing classes in therioshamanism (my personal shamanic path)
19 deviants said More than one of the above (please comment)
10 deviants said Individual topic workshops on shamanism and related practices in general (journeying, shapeshifting, etc.)
5 deviants said Individual topic workshops on other pagan and related topics such as some of those listed at…
3 deviants said Something not listed here (please comment)

Hello, I have a nice deer pelt and I would like to make it more durable (for wear) and I was wondering if there was any technique to sewing a cotton liner type deal in.
lupagreenwolf Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2014
The simplest way is to cut a piece of fabric the same shape and size as the hide and then sew around the edges, maybe with a few basting stitches across the middle. 
Snifflefox Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2014  Student Artisan Crafter
Nifty! But let's say I misjudged how sturdy the leather of the pelt was would I be able to glue it using leather or vinyl glue?
lupagreenwolf Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2014
Yes, I use Tandy leather Weld or Aileen's Tacky Glue.
