Inspired by Nature & Science

Hi, I'm Michelle, and I'm the owner and operator of Silentcheesecake Designs. I'm an illustrator, sculptor, and designer from Los Angeles.

Growing up, I loved digging for earthworms, collecting dead insects, and observing the natural world. Nature and science became my biggest source of inspiration. One evening in 2005, I found a deceased bee in my backyard and decided to preserve it. The preservation method was inspired by my mother's floral candles. It soon evolved from being personal relics to a business/artform. I wanted to create one of a kind jewelry and displays to honor, adorn, admire, inspire, and educate. I strive in providing high-quality designs that will last years.

All specimens are ethically and legally sourced from entomologists, found deceased, biology specimens (meant as teaching aids), local markets, reputable taxidermists that acquire from pest-control waste, by-product, found, roadkill or natural death. All the flowers are real, dried and free of moisture. Many are taken from my own plants and others are from various dried-flower suppliers.

All the animals I use are ethically sourced. They are all repurposed specimens. I do not kill any of the animals I use in my work. Please, do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
