Be aware that this Tumblr frequently includes pictures of art made with animal remains, as well as rampant feminist opinions, corgis and bats, and lush landscapes.
Artist, author, (neo)shaman, and wannabe polymath living in the Pacific Northwe(s)t.
I discovered neopaganism in the mid-1990s, and shortly thereafter began my work with animal totems and neoshamanism. Over the years I've wandered through various paths, ranging from Wicca-flavored neopaganism to Chaos magic, but for the past few years I've been creating Therioshamanism, a post-industrial neo-shamanic path. I've also been creating various neopagan ritual tools and other sacred art from hides, bones, beads and other such things since about the same time. And I've written several nonfiction books on totemism, animal magic, and related topics. Currently working on "New Paths to Plant and Fungus Totems".
A few places to find me, as I'm all over the internet:

So when I posted this tail last week to http://fav.me/d4tht43, I had a request to make it into something custom. So here it is! I put the tail on a braided leather belt with a matched pair of belt pouches with antler clasps, all made from assorted brown leathers from various old coats and skirts. I deliberately mixed up the colors just for the fun of it, and to match the rainbow of colors in the tail itself.
This set is already spoken for, but if you’d like something similar, just message me—I am open for custom work!
