This New Jewelry Line Is Oddly Beautiful (Wait ‘Til You See What It’s Made From)

By  | 

It doesn”t seem to matter what jewelry is made out of, because if it catches the eye, people will wear it. And while the Victorian fad of wearing jewelry made of human hair may sound bizarre, you may find that this recent trend is just as odd we”re talking jewelry crafted from human teeth.

Check out these pieces of jewelry made by Aussie silversmith Polly van der Glas. At the the center of each piece, she uses the pearly whites of actual human beings “found around” Melbourne. It may sound crude, but some of the pieces are actually pretty elegant.

About her work, van der Glas says that, “when attached to the body, we praise hair and teeth that adhere to the rules…Yet when they are shed, their meaning and value undergoes a dramatic transformation.” You can check out her work on her website and on Etsy.

You know what, they”re really not so bad looking. As far as I”m concerned, as long as we”re not making necklaces out of human ears, society will probably still be okay.
