Blood Ritual - handpainted Featherquill by Ganjamira Blood Ritual - handpainted Featherquill by Ganjamira
:iconlawooplz: Oh my, finally I got enough raven and crowfeathers to craft a quill!:la:
Wanted to do this sooooo long *-*

This quill is by far my absolute favourite until now:love:
Crafted from several wingfeathers from crows and ravens, painted with dark runes and decorated with a organic looking ornament I sculpted from black polymerclay and a rubyred glasscabochon.
The hold is wrapped in red satin, calligraphic nip in the tip.

:la:FOR SALE!!! -> www.etsy.com/de/listing/178225…

All feathers are collected by me from the nearby forest. Guess its mostly raven, because we have five pairs nesting in our area^^

PLEASE NOTE: Feathers from wild living birds are against the federal laws in the US and many other countries! Please inform yourself about the laws relating to this to stay out of trouble! (I only sell quills like this within the EU.)

This is very beautiful work on lovely feathers! Feather painting is something that always inspires me...but this is part of why I am commenting. I realize you are from Germany so this law doesn't apply to you, but in the US where many viewers like myself are inspired by your work, it is against federal law to be in possession of wild native bird feathers or any other part of the bird, including eggs (thanks to the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918, only domestic or non-native species feathers are permitted). However, most artists are completely unaware of this until after they receive a several hundred dollar fine. I was wondering if at the end of your artist comment, you could add a line to say 'do not use this kind of feather in the US, it is illegal' or some such idea to help spread awareness? Also if your Etsy sells to the US, the buyer could get in trouble if they do not keep the receipt.

Awwww thanks you so much:hug: Im very very happy you like my works so much!:love:

This law applies to me as well, as seller I could be held responsible for the feathers if I would sell them to the US. So all my quills made from wild birds feathers are only purchasable within the EU. Also I keep the e-mail adresses from the sellers when I buy macaw feathers, so I can ask for the ringnumbers anytime^^
But even with this precautions Im still moving in a grey zone of laws...
So I really appreciate your thoughtfull comment - Ill definately add a little reclaimer about this!:heart:
