Amy Nugent is a Vancouver-based jewelry artisan whose prime medium for her ‘Roadquill’ line is the porcupine quills she personally collects from the roadkill on area highways.

Yep, roadkill. Talk about recycling! Amy Nugent’s ‘Roadquill’ cuff bracelets have been so successful that the artist has expanded her line to include eco-friendly jewelry from other types of roadkill and gallery artwork of roadkill.

Although a bit macabre, the items in Nugent’s ‘Roadkill’ line are also beautiful in their simplicity. Click through the gallery above to see items from the ‘Roadkill’ collection as well as the porcupine quills’ progression from roadkill to ravishing accessory.
