And I’m TALON You…

Time has been skipping and speeding up quite magically over here at Diamond Tooth.  Maybe I’m not tapping into the voodoo magic of these new chicken talon charms correctly; it would be behoove me to figure out how to slow things down a bit.

Perhaps you’ll have more luck.  Behold a slew of new charms; photographed yesterday, while the remaining batch continues to cure on the vine.

Although I have no magic training and make no claims about the voodoo potency of these charms, I’m a firm believe that teh energy I’m putting into these pieces (and all my creations for that matter) can only bring positive vibrations to the recipient.  It’s the same concept as never serving food to someone when you’re angry for fear of poisoning them.  Bad vibrations, man.  Just for fun:

“The chicken foot is traditionally used in Southern rootwork and “New World Voodoo” (ie, New Orleans Voodoo) for protection with an undercurrent of “scratching back” against those people, entities, or energies that would harm you.”

I’m a believer.

All of these feature chains ending in a lobster claw fastener, to easily secure it to your necklace, hair doodle, rearview mirror, purse, window, etc.  If any of them strike your fancy, don’t hesitate.  Your voodoo charm is waiting for YOU!

Elvis was reincarnated as a bear and his skin is on my table.

 

I finally got around to working on a bear-skin rug for a client; she is another really fun individual to work with who basically said, “make it as glitzy and shiny as possible.”

Words to live by.

So I set out to source materials and make the sparkliest, most pizazzified bear-skin rug the world has seen.

I bought the skin frmo a hunter who shot the bear with a bow and arrow, harvesting the animal for food.  The cape arrived tanned and fairly soft but I had to rehydrate some parts to soften them up more in order to work with the facial areas.

Opal the cat approves of this fur.

Here is the head form.  I altered it slightly to express a nice Elvis-like lip curl, and proceeded to plaster the top left fang with crystals.

 

Diamond Tooth, indeed!  And this is just the beginning.  Stay tuned for an update on this hunka hunka burning work in progress.
