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.

REPOST: JOINED EARRINGS-HOT IN THE SUMMER


I'm reposting this not so old entry about my joined bone earrings in light of some recent heat they've been getting on the streets.  I particular enjoy wearing my long fringe and joined earrings in the Summer months when their not hindered by turtlenecks, jackets and scarves, so you can imagine how much mileage I'm getting out of my personal pairs these days.  It feels tremendous to have the wind whisp them about as I bike through town.  Or sit in a plane watching Bridemaids.  In fact, the last plane I was on was en route back form Rome and the flight attendant complimented the pair I was wearing.  I slipped her a business card and imagine my surpsie when I got home, checked my email and saw an inquiry from her on my website!  Turns out she's a bowhunter (hunts bears and uses every part, a gal after my own heart) with a budding taidermist for a daughter!  She purchased a pair for her gal's upcoming birthday and now I have a new pen pal!  I love serenditpitous meetings like this.
So, who knows what kind of magical meeting you might have wearing these.  They're certainly conversation pieces to say the least.  And GREAT for nervous fidgeting.

 

 

Keep your skull and jaws close to your skull and jaws.

This is a short and sweet little post featuring four new pairs of joined earrings (also known as “continuous earrings”, “earclaces” and “necklings”- I’ve been making these for 10+ years and have yet to find a way to properly market them for lack of a better name).
These earrings are surprisingly easy and fun to wear; they’re lighter than they look and give the wearer something to fiddle with, talk about or just enjoy the movement of.
I struggle to find a tag or reference name to go with pieces like this, as bone art is not actually taxidermy.  The term “osteopathicraft” was recently suggested to me but it’s a bit of a mouthful so I’m going to go with “Osteocraft” for now.  If you can com up with something better, please tell me your ideas in the comments!
First up: Rat Skull filigree earrings joined by black silk fringe:

The skull and fringe are both pleasantly lightweight and easy on the lobes.


Next: Pearlized Grey Fox jawbones earrings joined by a double strand of pearl beaded chain.  These are just a tad heavier than the rat skull earrings but completely wearable nonetheless.

I painted a pearlescent paint on the jaw and left a stripe untouched, just for fun:

Thirdly, we have a pair of pearlized grey fox jaw bone earrings with filigree detail  joined by white silk fringe:

Last but not least, Pearlized Grey Fox jaw bone earrings joined by a single strand of pearl beaded chain, with added chain and pearl detail:

Ding-a-ling-a-ling!

I am constantly producing these so if you want something you’re not seeing please contact me for a custom order.  Otherwise, get yourself to Wilbur Vintage ASAP and scoop up a pair!
