About this work

Description

A collaboration between designers at the Royal College of Art, and researchers at King's College London to create rings using bone chips donated by couples. Bone tissue was cultured at Guy's Hospital, then combined with precious metal, from which rings for the couples were made. "The result: each person wears the body of their lover on their hand"--Page 8.
