Flog It Blog It, Take A Chill Pill It's Roadkill!
On the hunt for that killer accessory then designer Reid Peppard could have just the thing for you. The American artist creates taxidermy artworks and jewellery based on basically road kill and other assorted vermin. No it’s not Shocktober yet, but macabre fashion fans will drool over these creations. Reid claims that her work is entirely ethical as the animals she uses have already died of natural or unpreventable causes and are often discovered and donated by friends. Hmmm those are some really weird friends she has there. Her latest collection PET features regular metal jewellery inspired by and cast from a bunny, a cat and a canary. She says, this collection is a playful look at the domesticated animals we share our lives with. Yikes guys I won’t be going anywhere near her studio and thank you I’ll keep my own roadkill for the pot.
