Shop Update: Black Forest Relics!
I just added some of the relics from this collection to MY ETSY SHOP! Deer teeth and tiny hooves, Wolf teeth, bird of prey talons...all with detailed sterling silver settings!
The Black Forest Relic Collection is a kind of Memento Mori to remind people about our current deforestation crisis: the tragic loss of the world’s sacred forest sanctuaries and the plants and animals it protects. The word "relic" denotes a supernatural object (usually a bone or other such) venerated because of association with a saint or martyr. Black Forest Relics are infused with the magic of the forest, the mythologies of the animal and a sense of imminent mourning...each one sacred in it's own right.
