Foxfire Daily: Paint the Runes

All painted up and drying. The other bone bits will become pendants and earrings. Now's the time to weigh in if you want a custom piece. *wink wink nudge nudge*

Foxfire Daily: Cut and Shape the Bones

Fox is working on a new Rune set, cut from whitetail deer rib bones. It's a pain in the fuzzy tail when all she has to work with is a hand saw and some detail files, but the bones whisper and sing, and she works until her hands ache and her skin is raw...

She forgets, while she works, sometimes to breathe, or eat, or drink. She communes with her materials and mediums, and they nourish her, body and soul, until she doesn't need anything external to sustain her...

And then when she finishes, and comes back to herself, she realizes she's ravenous, and thirsty, and aching... but it was so worth it.

And as a bonus: a 10-song excerpt from Fox's Muse Playlist, as she works with the bones today: 
The Root of All Evil by Abney Park
Berlin by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
Blue Alice by Ayria
Anthem of Our Dying Day by Story of the Year
Joy by VNV Nation
Black Sheep by Metric
Skin is Burning by Burlap to Cashmere
The Wrath of Fate by Abney Park
The Living Daylights by a-Ha
Savin' Me by Nickelback.

Dragoncraft: Antiques and Inklings, Oh My!

First on the agenda for today: Dragon has created his direction, or perhaps reinvented it. As I said previously, he loves old things and is truly in his element when surrounded by them.  The area we live in currently is rich in history and old, deep roots, and rich in antiques. Imagine how excited a dragon would get with so many antique stores and "pickable" places so close by.

Remember, we promised some treasures from Dragon's Hoard? Well, those three treasures are now up on his own, separate shop on Etsy:

is up for sale in the Studio Etsy Shop. 

Go over to Dragon's shop and show him some love, please! And help Ziggy find a home.

Much love and many blessings,
-White Fox
