I went to the beach for the day on Saturday. With the help of my friend, Anna, who is ten years old and an expert shark tooth finder, I came home with another 115 teeth! Here's a pic of my collection. The large teeth, which measure over 1.5 inches long, I found after a huge storm in 2007. But you can always find smaller ones at Topsail Beach, NC which is about a 3 hour drive from me.
I have enough collected now (over 200) that I can start using some of them in my doll making. I've only used one so far, in this postcard I made for Cyber Fyber 2009 . If you look really close, you might be able to see it on the Native American's necklace.
I also made the hair from horse hair and put real bird feathers in her hair. Yes, this is an old squaw - I call the postcard "Elder".
