If you have been looking for something a little bit more interesting and daring in the jewelry and accessory department this year, I suggest you take a good look at what Bone Art Place has to offer. Just as you'd suspect, this shop is abundant in stunning pendants carved from bones. Although it may seems like a very Goth-like accessory to don at first, on a leather thong it could look very bohemian and on a gold chain very chic.

Carved in the Maori style by local artists, Bone Art Place's jewelry are soft with a polished glasslike finish. The website states, "Over a period of time bone carvings absorb oils from your skin and change colour to a very light honey gold. The Maori believe this to be the carving taking on some of your spirituality or essence and thus truly becoming a part of the wearer."
