No one could accuse Nat Mauro or Cole Morrall of not having a backbone. Truth is, they’ve got dozens of them.
For their new jewelry line, Bones and Feathers Collective, the designers melt down recycled bronze bullet casings to mold around wax castings of fox, shark, and rattlesnake vertebrae.
The result? Necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings that make no bones about their anatomical appeal.
And (holy molar!) there’s even a necklace pendant of a bronze-cast human tooth.
Not feeling the “skeletal chic” motif? Just wait. The spring collection is all about turquoise, semiprecious stones, oak beads, and recycled bronze woven together with gold-colored thread.
The line also dabbles in handbags with fringed clutches and crocodile shoulder satchels.
They bring out the animal in us.
