All the cute and the precious have been found. All the kitties and puppies have homes. The candy colored, the eco-friendly, the hipsters of the handmade are all duly covered elsewhere. Here I will find the slightly odd, the darkly beautiful, the elegant and steamy pieces of goodness. I am very particular in my tastes and though I promise you that I will share nothing but the most intriguing of my discoveries, you may not always like them. I must also confess that I have no real artistic nor fashion background to base my finds upon. These are simply discoveries dug up from the depths of etsy or perhaps elsewhere, brushed off and presented for your approval.

Chicken Legs

Itty bitty bird bones
1. Taxidermy Gothic Victorian Hairpiece Finch Skull Feather Fascinator - Lovedtodeath
2. Bird Bone and Chain - UmbilicusDesigns
3. Bird Bone Pendant - Metalwendler
4. stork skeleton book - grimm
Who knew how many things bird bones could be used for. Used naked and embellished, cast in metal or as inspiration for jewelry and functional art. I admit I do not have the stones to sport the real thing, but if I did I would own something from LovedToDeath, amazing stuff. I might be bold enough to wear them cast in metal and I do love the giger influenced backbone piece, but I'd be more likely to carry a stork skeleton book around, yeah I'm just not all that exciting.

i really like memento mori art, and this reminder that we'll all be bones has its own fascination and beauty. the winged pendant is really special.
