Here are some examples of the materials I use in my craft.  If you are looking for something specific or have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me!

Beaver Sticks

Here's a sampling of the beaver sticks I use for the arrow shafts. A beaver stick is a hand-collected stick that gets its texture from a beaver eating the bark for food. Each stick is unique in color and pattern.  Most of my beaver sticks have been found in the NY area, but I have also collected some sticks from Oklahoma, Tennessee, Arkansas, and hopefully more states in the future!

String colors

I have several color options in the pre-made and naturally-dyed categories.  Since the naturally-dyed threads have subtle variations between batches, please understand that the exact shade may vary slightly.

Arrowheads

My arrowheads are modern and made specifically for me by a couple of hobbyist knappers in the mid-west area.  Occasionally the makers even quarry for their own stone to use!

This photo is an example of the types and colors of arrowheads I usually have on hand.  If you are looking for something specific, please send me an email and I can show you exactly what I have on hand or source it for you.

Feathers

Each of these feathers are wing feathers from a turkey.  I occasionally have other options, feel free to reach out if you are interested!

African porcupine quills

The African Porcupine Quills I use come from South Africa.  They are hand-collected natural sheds from a small community farm.  They range in size from 6 - 10 inches in overall length, the fattest part of the quill is slightly thinner than a pencil.
