Lovely Bones

HA! Well, what do I know?

Looks like designers and artists are exploring underground catacombs and digging up mortal remains for both art and fashion.  Their macabre compositions exude an eerie atmosphere using bones, skulls and other spine chilling body parts.

I’m catching myself drawn and gaping at these "dark" images like a morbid voyeur, but I must admit I appreciate the art and the creativeness behind these lovely bones.

As the fall 2011 collection begins to take shape, I will assure you, I won’t have any “skeletons in my closet”!

When you think of stones in Southwestern and Native American jewelry, your first thought is probably turquoise – and rightfully so, it’s the most prevalent and it’s almost synonymous with the style. But turquoise has a stylistic sister-“stone” that, once you think about it, is a common and key asset to some of the most beautiful and beloved pieces.
