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.

I have a few small exclusive pieces available. These are part of my new Reliquary series. Made from real human skull pieces from elderly specimens, with baby teeth donated by my friend's daughter.
The interior of the skull has been cut open to show the spongy texture.

Large round: 85
Medium square: 75
Small shrine: 65

Prices include shipping.

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.
