    We made some chimes from a deer jaw bone and everyone likes them. Of course we found these bones while hiking. We collect skulls and such. Anyhoo, they make the nicest tinkly chimes that we had to make several more.

    Alas, we are temporarily out of jaw bones. I like the contrast of sparkly beads with the scary teeth.

    Those are nice Bethie. It just goes to show that anything can be given a new life in the hands of an artistic junker.

    I like them too, but the bones are too much for this vegan. I like the silver tho.

    I'll bet those do have a great sound.

    :eek: Hey! I think some of those spoons match my grandma's service. :D

    Who would have thought? Absolutely jaw-dropping. ;-)

    I have to say I'm not sure I would hang them in my own yard, but at the same time they look pretty cool.

    I like them too Bethie. Isn't it a little too tempting to the pooches?
    I once stripped a cat to the bones for a class (the cat body was donated to me). The project looked great and my teacher was so impressed. A year later my spaniel knocked it down and ate it all but the head. A few months later she managed to get at the head. Be careful with those shepherds!

    I'll keep an eye out for that Muddy, but I've never seen them show any interest. I've got a beautiful horse skull that I made into a planter and field rats started gnawing on it! Also the wrens pulled the hen and chicks out of the eyesockets. Seems like everyone is a critic. :(
