We are working as fast as we can to get the mermaids tails out to you! The main carver, Stacy, is busy little bee out in the shop! We do have a few things to tell you all though, about creating. Sometimes, the wood or the antler or the whaterver-we-have does not fit to the specifications that are requested! As we do our best to find them, we hunt, and search, we screen and examine each piece of wood, antler, stone...somtimes the materials tell us what THEY want to be, and thats just the way it has to be!! As for the shapes of the tails, Stacy carves each one by hand, and it has alot to do with the antler it is mounted on, the shape of the wood piece, the way the grain is flowing....,SO please be patient with us and try to enjoy the beauty of creativity at its free-est! WE want to make every one of you happy and love your piece of hair art from our studio!! that is very important to us...we also must be true to ourselves and our material . We are responsible for what each thing becomes and we take great pride in each piece. Thought and planning , care and love go into each one!!!! We want you all to know that. We appreciate you more than we can ever express in words and hope that it comes to you in your package of joy when you order from our studio.Much love to you all, and please, stop in and ask about your order if you are anxious and excited, we always have time to say hi, give an update, or just pass love along to you!
