Jewelry made from horse hair and rodent bones

Horse hair and rodent bones are the eco-friendly materials behind Irish jewellery designer Daniela Cardillo’s delicate accessories. Her jewellery, which includes necklaces, rings, bangles and pins, is made using hair shed from her own horses and rodent bones she has collected or sourced online. The horse hair is dyed a variety of shades, including pastel pink, before being weaved and trimmed with gold accessories. She electroforms the ‘small and delicate’ rodent bones in metal before plating them in 22 carat gold, a process Cardillo says enables the bones to become ‘actual relics of previous lives’.
