Dave has recently added an airbrush system to his studio, and as such has added a new line of tatting shuttles he is calling his Cascade Collection. Three of these new tatting shuttles are on the way to our Etsy shop.
Dave was inspired by the Fernware shuttles made in Mauchline, Scotland during the 19th century. The unique shuttles, sewing notions and boxes were decorated by using real fern leaves and other floral leaves in a reverse stenciling technique to develop beautiful designs that were shaped by nature. Since we live in the heart of the Cascade Mountain region and have an abundance of ferns and other floral leaves available, Dave wanted to reproduce an artisan shuttle similar to the antique shuttles once produced in Scotland. His Cascade Collection shuttles will include those with designs on a single side as well as some with double sides. He hopes to expand the collection to include other fiber tools such as spindles and spool knitters.

Blogger seems to be having an issue with their photo service, and all of our photos are missing. We are hoping this is a temporary technical problem since we have ten years of product photos posted here. If you would like to see our portfolio of fiber art tools and jewelry, please visit our Flickr gallery.

If you are a recent customer of Grizzly Mountain Arts, you have seen Dave's new Celtic style tatting shuttles. He is making them from beautifully colored Spectra-Ply, as seen in the photo above. We currently sell all of our wooden fiber art tools in our online Etsy shop, but they do sell out quickly.

It's been awhile since we have had any fossil ivory jewelry for sale. We used to sell it at art shows here in Central Oregon and on Etsy, but now we are selling it exclusively in our Big Cartel store. We will be adding more pieces in the future.

Just when we thought we had found the last stash of ceramic pendants, we found some more! In this latest stash there are several of our original Celtic Druid's Egg© pendants, one of our original design Buckquoy Blessing Stone© pendants and one remaining Norse rune pendant. These will be the last earthenware pendants I will have for sale as I am no longer making these. You can view the pendants currently for sale by visiting our Etsy shop. For our newer customers, I used to sell my earthenware pendants on Etsy as "Good Dirt Jewelry", but I decided several years ago to combine my shop with Dave's.
