Tomorrow I'll be opening at 2:30 so I can make some deliveries, please come by afterwards and buy more stuff so I don't have to pack it!

I'll be opening late today to do pickups and drop offs, in case you were coming by early. Likely be back by 1.

Hello there, Custom-ers. Many of you might have seen the store in a bit of disarray lately. I guess I can't hold it back anymore, there are some big changes going on.
As of mid August, we are moving to the Seattle area. I will be open until 8/13 making deals to sell as much as I can before the move. My experience here has been full and varied, and I've met some truly fantastic people I'm proud to call my friends. Custom Cranium has always been my first love and will continue to live online with a brand new website and a store after I get fully landed up North.
Come in and pick up those neat things you've been thinking about and say goodbye in person. Shopdog Nyxe is in today and available for hugs, too!

Come check out our awesome reptile selection! We've got some extremely rare specimens in right now, along with preserved ball pythons and cool colorful corn snakes! Right here at Custom Cranium, Eugene's only oddity and taxidermy store!

I finally got another hoof bottle to decorate! Love these damn things. This one stands up on its own, holds a little over a liter of liquid, and seals with a rubber cork. I generally go crazy elaborate on these, so I took a more mellow approach and just added simple leather and stud accents. $70 shipped

So many new keychains! Check out what I've been working on lately.
Dragon feet and dragon scales, rat tails, bunny feet and bunny tails

Today I had a large muntjac skull stolen from my shop. I hope whoever stole from me understands that you're taking food directly from me and mine. You're stealing my ability to bring new cool stuff to the shop. You're the reason why small shops don't last.
You're a despicable piece of crap.

Posting for easy sharing on a new adventure

We have too many ratties! Is anyone looking for some distinctive and pretty little rat babies to add to your family? We have Rex, double Rex, Dumbo, Dumbo Rex and regular in all beautiful color combinations. Come in and check them out today!
We also have rats for reptile food, live and frozen.

Wooden tiny Cabinets of Curiosities! Little decorated coffins and headstones with natural wonders inside. $45 shipped!

Incredulous voice: "a coffee can full of bats?". Yep, Darien's on the phone on a road trip. #bonelyfe

More fun with human bones! This time a larger ring with an inset light colored garnet. It's beautifully faceted but my phone isn't capturing it right. It's also highly polished. Size 10.5/11 $75 shipped

Human bone crown necklace, with sterling chain. This is a really neat piece with a distinctive bit of suture line left from another project. You don't get that form from any other bones. $50 shipped!

Mouse tail jewelry is here! Unique rodential adoration, the tails come from animals processed as food (for other animals). $20 per piece (earrings come as a pair), shipping included.

SPECIAL ON COW SKULLS! TWO FOR $50! Great for painters looking for a different kind of canvas. If you want more quantity, I'll work with you on pricing.

About Custom Cranium

Artist's Statement:

"I think this type of art is something of a second life for a being that may not have gotten to live out its full original life, and it's evocative of a regeneration, or reincarnation of sorts. Every life is important and artists such as ourselves are an important part of all of these animals, we touch their life every time we touch their bodies. It's an homage to life, if you really see it. Not death, although the two can't really be separated.

Because of artists who work with these materials, I hope every part of every animal is used."


No animals are ever harmed for the purpose of becoming Custom Cranium artwork. Custom Cranium simply gives more meaning to what is left after that death.

About Custom Cranium and the Snuff Stuffies:

Darien made her first stuffies in 1997 as a hobby, honing her taxidermy skills over the years including working at places like Skulls Unlimited. She began producing Snuff Stuffies for the rest of us in 2007.

These days her products include Snuff Stuffies (stuffed animals repurposed with bones, jewelry, armature and more), bone jewelry and other "Osteo-oddities". Custom work IS available!

Custom Cranium has a good following on Facebook, please join us and "Like this page". See the main web site for more information as well as links to the shop to see what is available right now.
