Designer Joji Rupert Kojima loves jewelry that has a macabre aesthetic. His pieces often use skeletons, bones, and other dark aspects of humanity to make jewelry. His work embraces vices, which makes the jewelry shocking at times but you can’t deny that they hold attention. He’s worked with many celebrities, including Lady Gaga. We’re excited to hear he will have an online store soon to give fans a chance of owning one of his pieces. The video below is dedicated to one of his works.
