The jewelry designer on the taxidermy in his new San Francisco shop: "I walked into a store about five years ago and saw a bear. I though that was a really cool display and the crazy thing was women walked in and they didn't even see the bear and went right for the cases. I like the contrast of having such a feminine store and then having something kind of fucked up. And as years moved on we're getting really creepy and making hybrid taxidermy with Frank Zitz. He'll do like a half swan, half gazelle." [Refinery 29]
