I have always had an interest and found beauty in odd, creepy, strange, sometimes morbid things. I slowly found myself becoming a collector of these odd pieces and took an interest in preserving some specimens and making displays for myself. Eventually this interest and hobby took over and I found myself with more pieces than I could possibly display! This is where those extra pieces end up. I love sharing my pieces with like-minded individuals and LOVE a good conversation with them as well (especially if it involves trading odd pieces. I'm a sucker for a good trade)
I absolutely love being able to make these pieces and want to thank you all for your support. For me to continue to do this, I need your help! Check us out at www.facebook.com/strangeinsugarhouse

All animal material is obtained after natural or accidental deaths. Many specimens are found in nature and some are donated from previous pet owners who wish to see something beautiful made from their lost loved ones. No animals are intentionally harmed or killed purely to make these pieces. All animal materials used would have otherwise ended up in the garbage had I not created something from them.
If you find the items offensive, you do not have to continue to view them.
Please do not send hateful messages as I will not respond to them and they will not change my views or hurt my feelings.
To everyone else, thank you so much for your support!
I love being able to create pieces that celebrate life, death, and decay that would otherwise be overlooked and forgotten.
the waitomo caves of new zealand’s northern island, formed two million years ago from the surrounding limestone bedrock, are home to an endemic species of bioluminescent fungus gnat (arachnocampa luminosa, or glow worm fly) who in their larval stage produce silk threads from which to hang and, using a blue light emitted from a modified excretory organ in their tails, lure in prey who then become ensnared in sticky droplets of mucus.
Clearing out more of my personal collection because I simply have too much to actually display. Here are Hanz and Franz, my mummified piglet and baby goat. I may be making them available in the #strangeinsugarhouse etsy shop soon, but if you are interested in them before that feel free to send me an offer for either one or both.
