Crafty Roadkill




Yes, the animals are dead, on the side of the road, but harvesting their body parts for jewelry, clothing and art is just wrong -- who buys this stuff? Please check out this story, and tell me what you think.

You know, I want to like the fact that she's "honoring the animals, and recycling," but the part of me that keeps my breakfast down isn't so sure about her "high-end art."

Sorry about the breakfast, NT. But I know what you mean -- she almost makes it sound like using their lifeless bodies is a good thing. Almost.

It's a way to save work for animal control, I guess. That's the kindest thing I can think of to say.

All I can say is, "Ewwwww!"

Let those poor creatures rest in "peace" -- instead of on the end of a "high end" ankle bracelet.

Good Lord!

You're always able to scratch away at the surface to find the tiny bright spot, Jan. Now, you've got me wondering what she does with the leftovers that don't appeal to her.

So, Georgie, I take it that we won't see one of these little items on your wrist or ankle any time soon, right? It grossed me out, too.

Well, on one hand the animal doesn't need it anymore, but on the other hand . . . who would purchase this stuff?

I guess it's true. People will buy anything.

Hey, Brenda, good to "see" you. Considering what a wasteful society we are, it figures roadkill would be one of the things we recycle.

I understand her urge to make something beautiful and useful from dead animals. It is a way of giving the spirit of that animal new expression. I have less of a problem with this than the hypocrisy of people who exclaim revulsion at this but have no problem eating meat from animals kept in deplorable captive conditions, and then killed for human consumption. Sorry, don't mean to sound like I've gotten on a high horse. :)
