Crown (SOLD) was created for 

'Animal bones have played a special role in adornment from hunter-gatherer times until now. In ancient China they were decorated with inscriptions and put to the flame in a practice of divination; a way of communicating with their Gods. Many cultures believe people embody the traits of different animals.

Jewellers, artisans and designers have been given a found bone and instructed to adorn it in a masculine way, or use the bone when producing a piece of adornment for men, especially jewellery ... 
The exhibition is a comment on the current explosion of body adornment, both permanent and temporary, as seen in fashion today.'
