Yesterday I met a very friendly girl at the RCA, Nikki Stott. She works as a research assistant in the jewelry department. She showed me around the workshop and told me about her MA project called Biojewelry. It uses laboratory grown human bone tissue as a design material to make rings of. Really cool, really wicked idea as I think.
