Mouse Droppings Are a Girl's Best Friend


Aliza Amihude may not be a household name, but the Manitoba Arts Council thought highly enough of her work to give her a $3,760 grant for her to create jewelry made of natural materials. But when taxpayers found out their money was being spent on necklaces and bracelets made of mouse droppings, pubic hair, and toenail clippings, some were a bit aghast. Amihude says she doesn't see why people are so upset.
