One For Sorrow

"One for sorrow,
Two for mirth,
Three for a death,
Four for a birth,
Five for silver,
Six for gold,
Seven for a secret,
Never to be told.
Eight for a wish,
Nine for a kiss,
Ten for a bird,
You must not miss"

-- Traditional nursery rhyme

(A complete series based on each verse is in the works. Coming later in 2019.)

As noted in the sidebar, all bones and other specimens in Vanessa's collection are ethically sourced, cruelty-free and non-CITES species, and were obtained through reputable and trusted sources. She does not own/collect specimens protected under international conventions or North American laws, nor should any enthusiast. If her work has inspired you to collect skulls or animal parts, it is your duty as a responsible collector to educate yourself on the legal requirements applicable to your country of residence.
