Neoleatherstockingist female furry

Seems like I've been posting primarily for the lady leatherstocking recently. So be it.

Neoleatherstockinist because of the fierceness, the single-action revolver, the gloves and shut up I get to define the genre is why.

Another nice bit of headgear

In additional news - I have acquired a couple large abalone shells. Iridescent silver gorget, ho!

Tiara and necklace

Photo from FB - the origin web site is here.
I saw a lovely shell gorget (a European-style crescent; not a NA-style disk) at the Black Birch the other night and have now added abalone gorget to my project list. It slots next to weaving bike baskets.

Dog tooth violence

I have no idea how the teeth were really obtained - the pun was just too good to resist.

Excavators at a site near Leipzig (map) uncovered more than a hundred dog teeth arranged close together in a grave dated to between 2,500 and 2,200 B.C.
According to archaeologist Susanne Friederich, the teeth were likely decorations for the outer flap of a handbag.
"Over the years the leather or fabric disappeared, and all that's left is the teeth. They're all pointing in the same direction, so it looks a lot like a modern handbag flap," said Friederich, of the Sachsen-Anhalt State Archaeology and Preservation Office. *
