For all the bling, gems and precious metals it contains, Julia deVille’s art is a still bit creepy. Her art comes from a mix of bones, hair, feathers, precious metals, gems, and taxidermy creatures whose shape the creation takes. Obviously, the creations aren’t for everyone, but deVille's job of creating such objects isn't something everyone can do in the first place.

The Melbourne-based artist creates her jewelry under the label "Disce Mori," Latin for "Learn to Die." An apt name for creations that are attractive and repulsive at the same time.
