Bones

The jewellery designer- Xiangkun Yin (2012) suggested that, ’ Bones support life and, when the body decays, they’re the only proof of the animal’s physical existence.’ Thus I will mainly use the form of animals’ bones. In the first step, in order to understand the structure of skeleton, I will trying to collect many kinds of bones of different animals. However, for those invertebrates, I will collect some parts of them, like fur, shell and so on.
