James Jean / Färjil / Adrienne Krieger
Could inked bones be the next level in tattooing? Just think of the pretty skeleton you could leave behind! Or, you could skip the pain and pick up a porcelain vertebra ring from Los Angeles artist James Jean (find them under 2012 "objects").
Snake vertebra ring, cast in pewter, by Sweden's Färjil (Josefine Wallander & Lennart Thilander).
Spine pendant from Seattle's Adrienne Krieger.
