Alp Sagnak is following the footsteps of other creative jewelry designers in making bone jewelry, where the adornments come from real animal bones. The Turkish designer has created everything from bracelets to earrings from opossum fibula and tibia bones.
However, unlike other designers, Alp Sagnak has adorned these pieces with 24-karat gold, diamonds, silver and rubies to make them extra glamorous.
Implications - Jewelry comes in all shapes and forms according to a designer's personal style or chosen target audience. Next to gold and gold silver, self expression is of high value for consumers when jewelry shopping. Pieces with unique style and inexpensive materials will save both the consumer and company money.
