Turning insect crystals and medical data into jewelry

A pair of unusual and acclaimed jewelry designers are pairing for this Fishtown show. Tyler Thrasher works with "nature and its respective curiosities," which is another way of saying he grows crystals on dead insects and skeletons and turns them into wearable art. The result is stunningly beautiful, as his 135k Instagram followers can attest. Doug Bucci is a professor at Tyler School of Art and also has pieces in the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum. His jewelry is often based on medical data — but you'd never recognize it.
