Skeleton Cutlery by Andre Lassen via Raven Armoury in England. Forged once a year from artist-supplied wax slugs in small quantities. Limited and rare. These are seemingly sort of internet famous but usually re-blogged and posted around without artist credit. These are fucking gorgeous in person.

We are currently selling a set of these for less than the current rate and minus all the import/customs fees we had to pay. Check it out:

"Since the early 1980s, artist Hubert Duprat has been utilizing insects to construct some of his "sculptures." By removing caddis fly larvae from their natural habitat and providing them with precious materials, he prompts them to manufacture cases that resemble jewelers’ creations. Information theory, as explained by biologists such as Jacques Monod and Henri Atlan, helps us understand what seems to be the insect’s aesthetic behavior. The activities of the caddis worm, as manipulated by Hubert Duprat, are prompted by the "noise"—-beads, pearls and 18-karat gold pieces—-introduced by the artist into the insect’s environment."
