I’m lazy, but promise more delightfully disgusting things soon.
Dead bird necklace, Talon ring, and Trophy Mouse brooch by Julia deVille . I’m really loving the ring, although it’s probably completely unreasonable to actually wear. Along with that she also does taxidermy art and jewelry, some of which are on sale in New York City, LA, and uh…Dallas? I guess that last one makes sense. I guess. I’m definitely going to go check it out next time I’m in Manhattan.
Another non fashion related post. I just really don’t think I could go on with this without talking about Damien Hirst. I’ve been a huge fan of his for a longgggg time. I remember when my ex boyfriend was still going to school (before he became a corrupt carpenters union meat head) I went to a bunch of galleries with him. He eventually mentioned that he had been to the same gallery a few years before to write about Damien Hirst, and in his words was “freaked the fuck out”.
So naturally, I googled that shit when we got home. These are just amazing. Seriously.
Others include a cow head (complete with maggots), some creepy paintings, and some more conceptual sculptures.
I’m kind of in love with this. It’s a knit brain purse by Jun Takahashi (who also teamed up with Louis Vuitton). I could make a bunch of bad jokes along the lines of picking your brain, or something about grey matter but I’d kind of rather just sit back and wish this were mine.
Not fashion related, but oh. my. god.

Another wearable piece! This one is by Tithi Kutchamamuch. This one is actually a pretty cool idea. The head of the little bird statue is removable, and once you pull it out the string is complete with exactly what you would expect inside a bird. Guts.
Okay. The animals didn’t bother me that much. The human teeth stuff? Whatever, as long as it’s legitimately my teeth I’m going to be wearing around. But this…I’m going to have to think about before I decide how I feel about it.
A taxidermy squirrel heart necklace. Along with that, you can also buy coyote vertebra necklaces (painted silver/with silver coating), and a mink skull necklace complete with gold teeth. These are all for sale at the aptly named store on etsy, Loved to Death.
I love cameos. I really, really love cameos. I need this cameo.
My prediction is that these will become incredibly popular if Lady Gaga releases “Teeth” as a singal. You can make jewelry out of your fucking teeth, people. Legit. Or your hair. Whichever floats your boat.
