Oh, the human body. So wondrous, some might say it’s delicious. Cannibals sure would.
They’d also say it was decorative. (A femur lariat slung low around the neck, a jaunty tibia belt.) Cannibalism’s only drag? Chewing cartilage. And people sure do cry when you boil them.
Allow us to present a more civilized alternative: the Bone Collection by Denise Disharoon.
The pounded silver jewelry is inspired by Disharoon’s fascination with architecture and nature. Curved dangles — reminiscent of ribs — aren’t perfectly symmetrical, and all the better for it. The tiny, whip-thin bones floating on silver cord are pretty enough to make you forget their inspiration. Chains come in varying lengths, and all of the pieces can be special-ordered in 14-karat gold.
People will marvel at your great taste.
And the added bonus: They’re also less filling.
