Human Hair Necklaces Are Creepy New Jewelry Trend (PHOTOS)

human hair necklaceJewelry is one of those style elements that is usually much better, eye-catching, statement-making if it's unique. Sure, some of us love the clean, classic designs of Tiffany, but once everyone and their sister and mother had those heart bracelets, the Legally Blonde look shortly faded out. But there's also a fine line between unique and freaky-deaky-skeevy-queasy.

An artist named Kerry Howley is testing that boundary by crafting necklaces from human hair. The necklaces were Howley's attempt to "make discarded hair attractive again."

You know, she does make a good point. We love the hell out of our hair when it's on our heads, but as soon as it's clipped off, it's grotesque. But lots of people have no problem wearing feathers or fur, which kind of fall under the same category.

I'm not saying I'll be changing my mind about "dead" human hair anytime soon. But hey, if Lady Gaga can rock a dress made of flesh, I wouldn't be surprised if she'd give human hair necklaces a shot. So, if nothing else, Howley could very well have a future designing accessories for the Mother Monster.

They are definitely artistic and they look very pretty but I would be afraid of being very itchy or of pulling something and breaking it, lol!

No. Interesting in the name of art but not something I would wear.

No.
But there are a lot of people out there with weird fetishes, so someone is bound to buy this stuff.
