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.
