A London fashion student is using her friends' bodily fluids so she can turn them into crystals to accessorise her clothes.
Royal College of Art graduate Alice Potts used blood, sweat and urine to make the gems, which she attached to a pair of ballet pumps and a fake fur coat.
The London-based graduate believes the materials donated by her fellow students have environmental and health benefits beyond the limitations of traditional plastic or cotton.

Ms Potts, who kept her crystallisation process under wraps, added that in future the concept could possibly be developed to create a bio-sensor to detect high sugar levels for diabetics.
Other environmental-thinking collections on display at last week's RCA show included a range of clothes produced without sewing any seams.
Instead, a new weaving technique was employed, reducing fashion waste and challenging over-consumption.
The show, entitled A Walk Without a Cat, featured dance performances and live shows rather than a catwalk and was held at 180 Strand, the home of London Fashion Week.
