Reid Reppard Redesigns Animal Bones into Wonderful Jewelry

Years ago (and sometimes today), wearing animal bones as jewelry was a sign of status, style and elegance; therefore, Reid Reppard decided to use this approach in his designs to kick them up a notch. He plated bones from a squirrel, red fox and carrion crow in gold and silver, turning them into necklaces and bracelets.

These gilded accessories are a badass indication of style. However, fear not - these animals were not hurt during the making. These are bones from pre-deceased animals donated by friends, in which Reid Reppard can plate with 18 carat gold or silver to fit your taste.
