DEM BONES

Los Angeles’s Bones and Feathers Collective creates anatomically correct jewelry by hand-dipping wax casts of fox, shark, and rattlesnake vertebrae into molten bronze derived from expired bullet casings. Even more spine-tingling? Designers Natalie Mauro and Nicole Morrall have thrown in a bronze-cast necklace of dangling human teeth, with the goal of showcasing a collection that “hovers between where we begin and end as humans and animals alike.”

AL DENTE

Looking for a pair of shoes to complete your creepy Halloween costume? Fantich and Young just carved their way into our darkest nightmares with a pair of black oxfords soled with 1,050 fake human teeth. Some of the dentures even sport gold caps. “The idea for the shoes are based on Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution and natural selection and juxtaposing them with the supernatural elements of pagan rites and rituals,” according to designers Mariana Fantich and Dominic Young. If that’s not unsettling enough, the duo also offers a matching suit from human hair and glass eyes.

HAUTE HORROR

Remedios Vincent’s grisly accessories would fit right in the prop room of a Hammer horror film. Like a mad scientist who operates in an atelier in lieu of a laboratory, Vincent creates his wares—old prescription lenses lined with human lashes, rings hollowed from false eyeballs, brooches studded with teeth—by arranging antique medical instruments and vintage prosthetics in the most discomposing way. “These objects have their own stories, having been used by people who lived in other parts of the world,” he explains. “I have tried to retain their spirit subtlety intervening in them.”
