Hello there!
My name is Heather and i am a creator of crystallized animal skulls as well as jewelry and soon, taxidermy! I have finally found the thing that makes me happy in life, and its something i never want to stop doing. From the first time i picked up a skull from a roadkill animal, and turned it into a beautiful art piece, i felt like i was helping ensure that the animal was appreciated after death, admired, and respected, not left to disappear forever into the soil. I work hard to clean and prepare each individual bone before creating art with it so i can be sure that my pieces will last and last. You can see the art i currently have available on my etsy page here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/CrystalRemains


Apollo

I took the jump and became fully dependent on my art in November 2018 when my Dog Apollo started to decline in health. I really needed to be there for him and to enjoy the last months i would have with him in my life, and im SO thankful that i was able to do that. Its all because of every one of you who have purchased my art. Since then ive been working daily to create pieces and come up with new ideas to keep this business going and growing. I am currently practicing taxidermy with hopes of becoming licensed in the future. 

By supporting me on Patreon, you'll have access to more behind the scenes posts than anywhere else on social media. Ill be sharing short video tutorials with you guys which is something ive never done anywhere else! You'll also have the chance to own some of my art through lay-away type tiers, or build your own mini curio collection with cool findings i have collected. 

Tiers
quartz

Hello there! thank you for helping support my art! This tier is for those of you who appreciate everything i already share, and just want to continue to see it!  You'll get access to my entire patreon only feed seeing work in progress shots, finished pieces, and other random stuff i might be up to!

You're here! and you're greatly appreciated! Thank you so much for being a fan of my work.

You'll also be given a code for 10% off anything in my etsy shop!

topaz

this tier is a little different than the others. it is more aimed to those of you who are interested in the vulture culture community and would like to see some of the more "gorey" behind the scenes of what i do to create art using animal bones. You'll have access to photos of roadkill, animal funerals, and the decomposition process. These types of images often times evoke negative reactions when shared with the general public so im placing them here so you can choose if you want to see it or not.

you'll also receive 10% anything in my etsy shop, and a print of one of my pictures!

everything from previous tiers, but the etsy discount is raised to 20% off anything in my shop, AND you'll receive a mini curio vial containing moss, bones, teeth, dried flowers, etc. there are a few different ones to choose from!  Contents will be a little different if youre outside of the U.S. but will be equally as interesting! Thank you! for being here!


bismuth

everything from previous tiers, including curio vial, and also a real coyote tail keychain! so soft and fluffy! i have one attached to my purse everywhere i go! International patreons unfortunately cannot be shipped the tail due to wildlife laws. Please indicate if you'd like to have access to the "topaz" tier when you pledge. If you do, you'll also receive a print from that collection, but beware, they're of the less "pretty" side of this type of work.


 You can also choose to use this as payment twords a piece in my shop or a custom commission if you'd prefer that instead. Message me and let me know what you've had your eye on and we will work it out! International patrons, please note that many of my pieces cannot be shipped out of the U.S. but i can create things using domestic animal bones and skulls that are able to be shipped.

pyrite
$125 or more per month only 2 left

Patrons who are on this tier for at least 3 months will get your own custom domestic dog skull art piece!  I get these skulls from a friend who travels and does surveying on the roads, and is also a collector himself. These animals were found in dump sites along the highway, unfortunately abandoned. No collar, no microchip, most of the time they're just bones and breed cannot even be determined. Since they are domestic animals, they can be shipped anywhere in the world! have a look through my instagram page to get ideas on what i can do, and message me with your preference on decoration! 

Goals
$0 of $300 per month
This amount per month will supply me with all the detergents, paints, crystals, and other adornments i need to clean and decorate skulls for my art, as well as purchase some supplies i need in my journey to become a taxidermist. When i reach this goal, i will incorporate step by step video tutorials on how i create my art! I have had many "how to" questions in the past and i believe these tutorials will help many of you create your own unique pieces!
