These intricate necklaces are gorgeous. But what they are made of will totally weird you out!

There is definitely an aspect of pride and physical beauty connected with hair. I’m sure we’ve all witnessed someone being brought to tears by a bad haircut, or the desperate measures people take to cover up bald spots. However, like toenail-clippings and other things that were once part of the body, after hair falls out it is an entirely distasteful matter. Kerry Howley’s ‘Attraction/Aversion’ human hair necklaces capture the dueling sentiments we associate with hair.

Howley’s award-winning necklaces resemble delicate floral lace, and are inspired by Victorian mourning jewelry and damask wallpaper. Howley’s aim with ‘Attraction/Aversion’ is to reinvest fallen-out hair with beauty, as well as to explore certain emotional responses elicited by specific materials.

Are you brave enough to wear one?
