About Beth Beverly


I am a State and Federally licensed taxidermist who graduated from the Pocono Institute of Taxidermy in 2010 with high marks. I have a deep respect for this craft and those who strive to preserve it.

It is my pleasure to work on any trophy mount, be it a shoulder, life-size, rug, or fish.

I accept custom orders for fantasy mounts, wearables, and bridal hair pieces.

Sculptural mounts and hats are available for rental provided they are in stock at time of inquiry.

Contact me describing your wish and I will be delighted to make it so.

MAKE IT A DATE: Chicken Mouning Demo with MOI at Diamond Tooth HQ!

On the heels of my delightful and engaging presentation at the Wagner Institute, I've started offering live demonstrations in the more intimate setting of my studio.  If you're curious about taxidermy and would like to see it up close and personal, executed by a licensed professional who is more than happy to answer any and every one of your questions- then VOILA! Both dates are on Saturdays, the first being June 29 and the second on July 13.
These workshops are hosted through a company called Side Tours; they assemble a calender of unconventional experiences for anyone enthusiastic about getting to know more about what Philly has to offer.  Directly from their site:

  • Beth Beverly is an artist, fashion designer and licensed taxidermist
  • Watch as Beth demonstrates how to properly prepare and mount a chicken, then try it yourself
  • Push your boundaries and challenge your perceptions of death in a lively interactive environment
An important ritual in ancient Egypt and the Middle Ages, the real golden age of taxidermy came during the Victorian Era, when it was all the rage in interior design. The fashion eventually faded, but as with most fashions, it has recently experienced a big revival.
Beth Beverly is the proud proprietor of Diamond Tooth Taxidermy. An artist and fashion designer, Beth found her calling in the form of sculptural and wearable taxidermy. Since then, she has become a licensed taxidermist and was featured on AMC's Immortalized, a reality show about rogue taxidermists and their colorful creations.
Join Beth in her warehouse studio for an interactive demonstration in the art of preservation, as you watch her prepare and mount a recently deceased chicken, creating a wonderful (and wonderfully odd) piece of home decor in the process. After Beth shows you the ropes, you’re encouraged to take the wheel, tumbling the hide, blowing the specimen dry and preparing the animal for tanning. Afterwards, try on some of the incredible, wearable animal creations made by Beth and pose for pictures. Grab a feather on your way out, as a memento of your fashionable new skill.

Beth Beverly's fascination with the lost art of taxidermy began soon after she started incorporating animal fibers into her work as a fashion designer. When she happened upon a dead bird on the city sidewalk, it felt only natural for Beth to pick it up. A decade later, Beth is a fully licensed...
