India stone boxes with flower inlay. $20/pair. Lids shown on top, open insides shown below.
I was originally going to wax the lids to get them to stay on to make a huge pair of plugs
(with the lid acting as a big one-flare on the fronts), but just never got around to it.
The bottoms measure between 2-7/16" to 2-1/2" and perhaps could still be utilized as cylinders
without the inlaid lids. Or use them as jewelry stash boxes!

colored crushed stone elephant, frog, beetle, or koi patterns.
These happen to be cylinders around ≤1-3/8" in diameter, though if you are considering wearing them as plugs, please note that they are very long in length, they are made of several elements that have been glued together, and that the lids are loose and will come off unless something such as beeswax is used to make them have more of a grip.
We have two of each design, and would prefer to sell them as pairs instead of as singles,
thus they are priced at $30/pair or $20/single piece.
Fronts are shown first, followed by a back side, side view, and an opened box.

*Africa necklace bracelet beads*

Beaded African bracelet mounted on leather (SOLD) and necklace ($45).
I do not know the exact origins, but my best guess would be South African for the necklace -

Six single pieces of striped ebony wooden spirals for use as pendants.
$12/each piece. Sorry, there are no true pairs here!


*blacklight UV black light*

Portable battery-operated mini blacklights (long wave UV light).
These cuties also have a built in tiny flashlight and hand strap.
Useful for identifying amber and copal, as well as observing out the fluorescence of different stones (such as sodalite, fluorite, or some opals), the brown parts of horn (!), locating blood or other bodily protein stains (ew!), checking the validity of money orders, seeing if your friends have false teeth, obsessively removing lint, or finding scorpions in the desert.
Uses 4 AA batteries (not included). $15/each. Cheap!

For you techies: the length of the wavelengths of light were measured in Angstroms,
which are being phased out for the term nanometers (one thousand millionths of a meter).
Visible light ranges from approximately 400nm (violet) to 700nm (red).
(1 Angstrom = .1 nanometer) (1 micron = 1000nm)

In old-school Angstroms, the spectrum we are concerned with here goes from:
125 to <2,900 Angstroms is short wave or far ultraviolet light (kills bacteria; used for sterilizing; dangerous to human eyes);
2,900 to 3,200 Angstroms (rays that make humans tan and sunburn);
3,200 to 3,800 Angstroms is long wave or near ultraviolet light (used in blacklights; invisible; not harmful to human eyes);
4,000 (violet/purple) to 7,000 (red) Angstroms is seen by humans as visible light;
>7,000 Angstroms is infrared light (invisible to the human eye).

Blacklights can range from 3,200 up to 4,500 Angstroms. Thus this overlap into the spectrum of our visible light range we are able to see as a purplish light; keeping in mind, however, that most of the light these emit is invisible.

Black rubber (nitrile/Buna-N) o-ring kits, hardware store style are $22.

Poppy mandala shirts!

*poppy mandala t shirts*

The front has the word 'ORGANIC' below a poppy mandala symbol in red, green, and tan.
The mandala was inspired by the Czech art noveau artist Alphonse Mucha,
and was redrawn/reinterpreted by our very own Markus Wolff.
There is a small anatomical heart with a rectangle of spirals on the back upper center in red ink.

Please note:: We are in the midst of finding a new printer for our shirts...

-Short sleeved t-shirts in Youth Large, Adult S, M, L, XL are $13/each; $15 for 2XL.
Other shirt types and kids' sizes are sometimes available upon request.

Leafy shirts!

*front liriodendron tulipifera leaf organic LLC t shirt design*

*back crest design*

Dustin from Arkansas has suggested calling this shirt: The Green T. I love it!
A beautifully shaped green leaf graces the front with our bamboo crest on the back.
'Tis a leaf from a tulip-poplar, aka yellow-poplar, aka tuliptree.
Not a true poplar-it's actually in the Magnolia family, and it's Latin name is Liriodendron tulipifera.
I collected this leaf here in Portland and chose it for it's odd and beautiful shape.
The little leaves spell the words 'organic natural body jewelry'...
this can also be read as 'organic body' on the right side and 'natural jewelry' on the left side.
Markus drew the bamboo design based closely on traditional Japanese family crests, known as kamon.
All sizes have now sold out!!!

This was an experiment to see if we can do more designs of limited edition shirts. That will keep those who get one of these exclusive designs to a select few who can know just how special they are. A little lesson in procrastination...

The 'I Am Not My Boobie' shirt!

*I am not my boobies shirt*

This was essentially a shirt for Erica's zine I Am Not My Body (see below).
The front sported a set of anatomical breasts (during lactation, no less)...

*anatomical vertebrae*

while the back had a human vertebrae; the scientific lettering pointing to the void said 'I Am Not My Body.'
Both are sides were printed in white ink. These have now completely sold out!!!
We are now considering reprinting them due to all the sweet inquiries we've received...
however, as we dig limited editions, they will be a bit different...
perhaps light brown ink on dark brown and black shirts?!? Stay tuned...

Tribal tattoo instruments

*Burmese tattoo sticks* *Burma wooden tattoo box* *Burmese tattoo needles* *Burmese tattoo weights*

Four Burmese pressure-fit tattoo instruments in carved wooden boxes. $150/one set.
The instrument itself disarticulates and consists of a long split 'needle' bar made from one piece of metal (brass?), a hollow shaft, and an elaborately cast heavy counterweight. Each pressure fits into the other, but most have a little bit of wiggle, which could be taped to make for a tighter fit.
Please click on these thumbnails to view larger images; however, none are at life size.
All four sets have now officially SOLD.
For an excellent article about the types and meanings of these counterweights, as well as general information on Burmese tattoo designs, symbols, and history, please see "Tattoo Weights from Burma" by Noel F. Singer in Arts of Asia magazine (March-April 1988), Volume 18, Number 2.

*Dayak tribe Borneo aso wood tribal tattoo stamp pattern stencil* *Borneo Dayak wooden tattoo stamp handle*

New Dayak carved wooden stamps, used in lieu of a stencil in Borneo style tattoo work, are occasionally available, as well as bronze Burmese counterweights (often depicting characters from Burmese mythology-as shown in the kits above). The stamp pattern is shown on the left, which might have been traditionally used with ash or lampblack. On the right, the back 3-D handle is shown, and depicts an aso dragon-dog often seen in Dayak carvings, beadwork, and tattoos.

We used to carry wooden Borneo (Kayan Dayak) tattoo tools in boxes, bronze/brass Burmese (Mon tribe) tattoo sticks, and wooden/bone Micronesian (Yap) tattoo instruments made from traditional tools, materials, and methods. We do expect to carry these items again.
We do currently have Burmese tattoo 'needles,' currently featured over on the newly acquired page.
