There is a mournful beauty to the brooches, bracelets and necklaces that make up the taxidermic designs of Julia DeVille. The Melbourne-based Kiwi Artist has always had a fascination for death and design, so naturally, the artist gives expired animals a second life in her fashion and home accessories.

The taxidermic designs of Julia DeVille are a form of natural preservation to the natural beauty of her subjects. Composed with chain, ribbon and fabric, the unconventional collection of art objects has a spirited elegance.
