A company called Jatco is finding new ways to use formerly discarded fish parts. Recently they partnered with designer Melanie Maggio to create a line of jewelry that re-purposes fish bones, teeth and skin.
It is all part of an initiative to waste less and appreciate ocean resources more. The pieces include necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings. Prices range from $85 to $500.
