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.
Diamond Tooth Taxidermy Blog:
That's what my dear old friend Erin was expressing to me last night when I presented her with her custom piece of fine taxidermic millinery.
Erin is a very talented stylist over at JuJu Salon in Philadelphia and fortunately for me, also one of my best friends. Several months back we agreed to swap a hair coloring & a couple blowouts ( my ultimate indulgence! Someday soon I'll be able to afford my weekly vice...) for a Diamond Tooth hat. I was given instructions not to rush; she wanted me to take my time so her piece would be just right.
I held out just long enough for this green vintage hat to walk into my life which I knew immediately would suit her perfect. Silly me; I didn't get any before pics but this hat in particular had significant crumple-age; after pressing and blocking it looked like an entirely new piece! Once the millinery issues were straightened out I added the squirrel portion. From there its just a perfect storm of found objects and me being in the zone and loving what I'm doing....and trying not to get too carried away.
I brought the hat over to Erin last night and she was pleased as punch! It fit her like a dream too, I shall get some pictures of her wearing it shortly. I even got a surprise blow-out!
OK, that;s all the flexing my vocabulary has the energy for. It's so hot in here and I just can't seem to find any more words. Take it away, Tom Tom Club:
