This Dress Is Made from Salmon Bones

According to Alaska Dispatch News, Sitka, Alaska–based artist Cynthia Gibson made a dress out of 20,000 salmon bones — and the result is something pretty fantastic. Gibson’s fishy fashion creation has been four years in the making. She told Alaska Dispatch News, “I always wondered why no one was doing much with salmon vertebrae because they’re everywhere and they’re easy to bead.”
