Nothing Says I Love You Like Dead Tree Rat

Remember when Pete Doherty gave Kate Moss a dead rat brooch and the world was all shock and awe, wondering what the sam-hell was goin' through his big ol' numb skull? Behold, the redneck version of The Crazy Love:
This is a pair of genuine taxidermy squirrel feet earrings. They hang from ornate Victorian inspired posts and measure 1 1/2" long without post. They have been professionally preserved.
Oh good, because I was really worried about those nails being perfect.  Poor Jes, she won't like this post. Gee honey, you'll never guess what I gotcha for Christmas! *shudder*

    I’m with Sarah. The first thing I thought-who want little squirrel toes scratching at their neck all day? For that I’d need an actual squirrel.

    HA When I was in middle school I went to my aunts house and her boyfriend had a bunch of squirrel feet he was making into necklace pendants. Of course being the super classy middle schooler I was I wanted the one he shaped to look like it was giving the bird… God I was cool.

    Looking back though it was pretty damn unsanitary to have a rotting squirrels foot dangling from my neck.

  20. Dee Says:

    Being that it was a professional taxidermist I can only guess that it was done from an animal whos meat was eaten… I hope.

    Not my style, it would bug me to feel toenails on my neck …. but it would be a great gag gift.. yea it’s a shocker, but hey….. the site is catastrophe, because handmade isn’t always pretty…. what did u expect? something cutsey?? lol

    That’s right up there with the locally sold Deer and Moose Dropping earings and pendant set. Real Moose/Deer turds dipped in clear shellac. It’s amazing what you can sell to Maine tourists.
