Reid Peppard is known for her outlandish roadkill fashion, having previously created hair accessories out of animal bones and charms out of deceased rodents. Now she's back with a whole new collection of wonderfully weird roadkill accessories. Her new creations include a 'Squirrel Tail Bracelet' and a 'Rat Coin Purse.' Almost every accessory imaginable -- both male and female -- are present in Reid Peppard's work, from cufflinks to clutches.

Everything that Peppard creates comes directly from the streets of London. As a taxidermist, Peppard receives newly expired animals quite frequently and uses this to her fashion-designing advantage. It's a different way of doing things, but that's what makes these creations so inventive, if a little bit bizarre.

Reid Peppard's creative "recycling" of materials merged with high-fashion accessories makes her work some of the strangest, but unforgettable in recent fashion news.
