Too Much!

‘Mourning Objects’ by Anna Schwamborn is a line of concept jewelry that is made up of your deceased loved one’s hair or ashes.Besides pure hair being used, cremated human ashes are mixed with black bone china, the world´s highest class porcelain. In her own words:

Mourning Objects

Wearable body pieces including human material

The collection of objects contains post-mortem memorial pieces which include aspects of a deceased corpse, namely hair and cremated ashes.

She has worked for Alexander McQueen and Vivianne Westwood, but had definitely gone crazier than both.

I find these to be not only ugly, but also very creepy. They have an erie quality to them and I don’t think anybody I know would like to be immortilized into odd-looking jewelry. This macabre jewelry line is very depressing. Jewelry should make you smile (or drool a little.)

I don’t think even Morticia Adams would be caught dead in these.

    one finds always what one wants to find, one sees always what one wants to see, one understands always what one think one understands, one believes always in what we want to believe in. life is there for us to learn to think beyond our imagination, beyond the physical manifestation of our body, beyond our own existence.

    I think the concept is great but the design is ugly. In vicorian times many people would keep a lock of hair inside a locket to remember loved ones by. The designs this woman has made are clunky and thus will be objects to be talked about. People will ask why they are wearing a bracelet made of hair and when they tell them they will be mortified. Not a bad concept, just a bad execution of the concept.
