British metalsmith, Lucy Jenkins is an accomplished jeweler who incorporates organic material in her work. Not pearls, shells or wood, but fur from road kill! I never dreamed ethical fur could be in this form. It's perhaps not for most people but this artisan is truly innovative and creative!
Her taxidermist skills helps her add rabbit and hare fur to her gold-plated bangles! She meticulously included the Latin name of the species to the sides of the pieces. The numbers following the name are the road designations where the roadkill was discovered!
Her packaging has a plaque which declares "No animals were killed for the purpose of this piece." Some of the Road Kill Range jewelry can be purchased through Luna and Curious.
