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.

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:
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!
Please enjoy these shadowy and spooky pictures I took with my untrained eye and hand of this dog baculum necklace. It was a rainy day and I was too depressed to turn on any lights, really. I do think the occulty vibe really translates though.
This is a dog penis bone that I embellished with a swarovski crystal and matched with assorted vintage necklace parts to make a new piece. A client purchased it; I have yet to hear any reviews. I hope its bringing her beaucoup bon juju.
