Anatomical Inspirations
Part 1 of 3
I've written about anatomically inspired jewelry before such as Paraphenalia's vintage illustrations of ear canal, ribcage, tooth, skull and brain made into notable pendants. Remember Margaux Lange, the artisan who made jewelry from Barbie doll parts? She had a great number of anatomically inspired jewelry too - her Barbie bust pendant was stunning. One of my favorites was her Barbie doll butt bracelet.

This brings me to today's feature designer, New Jersey based Ricky Boscarino who designs Luna Parc jewelry. He is the embodiment of extreme creativity. Repeat after me, "you can draw inspiration from anything!" Even enemas.

His medically inspired enema bag jewelry is made from a combination of three metals. The bags are copper, the hoses are sterling silver and the posterior at the top is bronze. Both pieces are available as pins but only the smaller butt-less piece comes as earrings.

His female friends including midwives and women who have undergone hysterectomies have also inspired him to start his reproduction series in sterling silver and bronze. His uterus pins below left are adorned with cameos and what looks like a mother of pearl. Then there are the sperm and fallopian tube creations shown below right.



The artist has expressed his creativity in many areas including his fantasy home which he calls Luna Parc. It is so incredible his home has been featured on television - HGTV's Extreme Homes and Offbeat America.
