All bones or animal materials used in my designs are treated with respect and no animals were harmed specifically for the purpose of my art. Most of the items I use come from roadkill, deceased pets, feeder animals or are the by-products of hunting and taxidermy work. I try to make use of what would usually be thrown away. Tarantula fang jewellery and framed tarantula shadow boxes are made from my own arachnids whose skins have molted naturally.


Taxidermy Secret Santa

Sun Dec 1, 2013, 4:05 PM

I'm a bit late jumping into the Secret Santa thing this year, but I've joined in every year before this, so here we go again! I'm certainly not expecting gifts because I understand how financially draining this time of year can be on people, but I do have a lot of taxidermy related items sitting around, so I'll be keeping an eye out for anything I can send out to others! :)


  1. Post a journal with 10-15 things you'd like for Christmas.
  2. Feature other people's lists at the bottom of your journal.
  3. Try to send other people gifts if you are able; even just sending a card is nice!
  4. Asking for non-taxidermy items is fine, but if you don't want any this might be the wrong Secret Santa for you.
  5. Please include your address in the journal or provide a way for people to contact you in order to send gifts.
  6. Include thsee rules in your journal.

Taxidermy Related Items

  • Corvid skulls, bones, feathers, feet, etc.
  • Groundhog skulls (my personal favourite type of skull).
  • Insect eating bat skull.
  • Bird study skins.
  • Male muntjac skull.
  • Any atlas bones for my collection.
  • Human bones or teeth.
  • Domestic cat pelt.
  • Marine mammal bones.
  • Fossils of any kind.

Non-Taxidermy Items

  • Loose leaf tea.
  • Stones/crystals (smoky quartz is my favourite).
  • Incense.
  • Cat toys for my four feline babies.
  • Postcards from other countries.
