'Human Ivory' & Belly Button Lint Art/Jewelry
I'd never heard the term "human ivory" before, and I'm gonna be honest, I'm kind of wishing I still hadn't. In case you couldn't tell from the picture, it's human finger and toenail clippings. Now if you'll excuse me I'm gonna go puke, wash my face and get myself together again, and then puke some more. Kidding, I think this is great. I even bite off and chew my own nails sometimes. "Uh, GW -- have you ever used a microscope to actually see what's under your fingernails before?" Yes -- dead penis cells.
Hit the jump for a couple more examples and a link to Rachel's (the maker's) Etsy store.
Thanks to Jorge, who collects fingernail clippings, belly button lint and human hair to make baby dolls. Congratulations Jorge, you win the creepy award.
