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.

A taxidermy calf hoof bows as deeply as possibly to present light to whomever wishes to receive it. A simple an elegant gesture, this piece will add allure to any table scape or bathtub meditation.
Solid and sturdy build that will last through many candles and memorable evenings.
Calf Hoof Candle Holders, Pair:
Stands on its own, this is a solid piece that will stand the test of suns, moons, spells and dreams.
Can be worm as a necklace or hung up as decor, dangled from a rearview mirror and anywhere you want to look at something sweet and tender and beautiful.
A solid and sturdy piece that will stand the test of many a query, while enhancing your mystique cred at the same time.
These are delicate and while they stand on their own, it is recommended to secure them with a dab of museum wax on the bottom as they are sensitive to hips bumping into the table and strong vibrations from feet stomping on the floor.
Mouse & Rat Fetus Ornament:
I hope they can bring some cheer to a few warm and fuzzy hearts.
Well, it wasn't technically a gift as it was for a client and she paid for it, but the amount of love and time I poured into this piece could warrant usage of the term "gift".
This rug was a dream project, as I think rugs are beautiful and functional, as well as a joy to make. I was instructed to "make a bear skin rug with lots of diamonds and flash".
Ideal Diamond Tooth project, yes?
I found the hide already skinned and tanned from a hunter in Maine who had harvested it with a bow and arrow. Knowing that this specimen had been sourced ethically and the meat was sustaining a family, I proceeded with confidence.
Diamond tooth, check. Sparkling eyes, check. Diamond nose stud, chain from nose to diamond stud earring, check and check.
Oh! And tongue ring!
Diamond manicured paws, but of course.
After hand stitching the entire lining onto the hide I attached the fringe along with my tag along the bottom. Finis!
I could hardly BEAR to see it go. The fur was so soft and warm; I know it will feel just divine on a cold winter night.
Would this piece win any ribbons at a taxidermy competition? Probably not. It's not perfect. But I'm proud of it, I think it's beautiful, and I hope she brings my client many a smile.
