RP/Encore | Reid Reppard
Inspired by urban creatures, the second collection by Reid Reppard features jewellery made from casts of bones of the grey squirrel, red fox and carrion crow. "The heart, bones and jaw of a grey squirrel. The tongue, talons and bones of a carrion crow. The teeth, jaw and toe bones of a red fox." These seem to be the key focal points in the collection titled "PARK." Pieces are available in either sterling silver or 18ct gold plated.
The creatures are London based, and have been discovered or donated by friends, having died of natural causes or other circumstances. Now it may seem unconventional to accessorize yourself with these type of pieces but for centuries, personal adornments were made out of natural materials such as animal bones. Forearm, jaw, heart, tooth, toe, talon, tongue or thigh, take your pick.
