TORONTO – You may want to hold onto your chicken bones next time you eat at KFC as they could be worth more than you think.
Made from real KFC chicken bones, the process to make the necklaces included eating a bucket of 25 wings, cleaning the bones with soap and water, then letting them dry in the “fresh Kentucky air and sunshine.”
They were then painted with a varnish to seal them in a graphite conductive paint so that a copper coating would stick to them before the gold plating was added.
It took roughly a month for the 20 necklaces to be produced.
“You can rock your chicken bone with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt or your little black dress, that’s the great thing about gold, it makes any outfit look fabulous,” designer Meg C says of the necklace. “And don’t chicken bones just go with everything?”
KFC got in on the prom action back in April when they released a special corsage.

The corsage was a drumstick surrounded by silk baby’s breath, green leaves and white ribbon. It sold for US$20 and came in Original Recipe, Extra Crispy or Kentucky Grilled Chicken.
KFC has not commented on whether they approve of the chicken bone necklace yet.
