Down the Rabbit Hole

Down the Rabbit Hole
Down the Rabbit Hole Clutch
(vintage rabbit fur, textured hide, buttery suede, rivets and a loop closure in hand-drawn and enameled copper)
One part tribute, one part nature, and about thirty parts boho rock and roll.  A little bit of dream, a lot a bit of wonder, a dash of song-singing and a whole scoop of rump shakin'.  It's one of those pieces that just feels good, like a streak of wildfire in the soul and the bass beat of the heart.  Ba-boom baby.  
(and naturally, she's in the shop right now!)

Have you ever considered working with nutria? An organization called Righteous Fur http://www.righteousfur.com/, promotes the use of the pelts from the animals that are culled in the efforts to save the Louisiana wetlands.
It would be another possible source of materials in addition to the vintage fur that you use.
