Reid Peppard is not your ordinary jewellery designer/taxidermist...She in fact is one of my most favoured designers ever...
"Anyone who actually reads about these pieces will understand that most of what I do is simply preserving (with great care) creatures that would otherwise be left to rot and ruin in the streets of London." - Peppard to "You might like this"
I love the beauty she finds in such seemingly repulsive animals, taking the avant-garde to a whole new level..You may have seen Lady Gaga sporting one of her rat hair pieces in her film clip Bad Romance...Not to mention her envy-worthy connections with Viktor Vauthier, who I might add is in my top three list of photographers...
I would LOVE to own one of her rat coin purses, I might have to look into Australian quarantine regulations for that one..
Reid Peppard you are amazing
