Some people find it awkward to wear pieces of stranger’s bodies like the teeth and hair as ornaments, however people agree that parts of loved ones could be accepted as tokens of affection. The fashion industry in all its eccentrics has accepted this jewelry and considered it as a new trend.

  1. Ok, I can kind of get the hair thing, like if you had cancer and lost all your hair why not have it made into a bracelet. But the teeth? I don’t really get that. I have seen a lot of weird things, but to me, this is beyond weird or odd. And to put so much time into making them one by one by hand. Well, anyways, don’t think this will be a huge fad anytime soon unless Hershey’s sponsors it ! HA !
