Artist Emma Montague first debuted these Jawbone sunglasses Royal College of Art Show in June. I’ve seen (and bought) my fair share of bone and skull themed jewelry, but damn these are just all kinds of yes. And don’t worry about Bambi, Emma got all the bone bits at the British Deer Society. How British is that? She constructed the glasses from horn, bone and acetate, but they don’t appear to be available for purchase. She really needs to outsource these because I’m positive a few of you fair readers would jump at the chance to own some. I sure would. You can check out her site, which doesn’t have much info. I’m very interested to see her future work.

Friction can be found where luxury meets decay and the refined becomes raw.
As raw remnants collide with smooth surfaces, hybrid forms take shape within this new collection of eyewear and jewellery. By subverting status symbols of personal adornment, dualities are left exposed, mirroring our own identity.
