Bone Chilling Jewelry

Is it me? Or is the jewelry world getting a little macabre these days? From Jaws jewelry to creepy crawly couture, designers are letting go of the Cinderella diamond fairy tale and are embracing Freddy Krueger fashion instead.

Case in point? Bone jewelry.

Blogger Nicole Keating from W Magazine spotted this crazy cuff designed by Turkish jewelry designer, Alp Sagnak aptly named, “The Bone Bracelet”. He used a dozen oppossum tibia and fibula bones, which he says “in Turkish are unique because they are the only bones with two joints.”

Throw in oxidized silver, 24-karat gold, rubies and diamonds and you have a $10,500 bone chiller for the perfect goth goddess to grab for their collection.

But Sagnak isn’t the only ‘bone collector’ out there. Trend Hunter features designs from the “Churchyard Human Bone Collection” made from human teeth, wrist bones – even bones from the human foot!

I don’t know about you, but I’m not really interested in accessorizing with poor Mary’s metatarsals (rest her soul). Ew.

What star do you think is the most likely to bust out with bone bling on the red carpet? Maybe True Blood‘s vampire queen, Evan Rachel Wood? Johnny Depp in collar bone cuff links?

Jewelry Trend Alert: Bug Jewelry


Fall jewelry trends this year are full of creative wiggle room for the accessory-obsessed like yours truly. We’ve already covered the statement ring (like this one on Drew Barrymore at her Going The Distance movie premiere):

Another must-have look for the season involves all things creepy and crawly – insect jewelry. Call it Kafka couture, if you will.

New York Magazine featured Sea of Shoes’ new funky beetle-inspired jewelry this week, and JCK Magazine reports jewelry designers at the Feninjer Fair in Brazil are showing everything from green and blue gemstone butterflies to styles incorporating beetle wings.

So how to wear these buggy little baubles?



And spiders are always cool, especially if they’re made out of black and white diamonds.

And if the darker side of bug life isn’t up your alley, there’s always the happy-go-lucky bumble bee, like this collection from Kate Spade.

The possibilities are endless, which is why I kinda love this new trend. What do you guys think? Would you wear winged creatures to the workplace?
