My country never ceases to surprise me. Dominicans have a knack for taking advantage of any situation and getting some money, or beer, out of it.

He married Lisa Marie Presley there in 1994 and his wedding certificate somehow got itself into the wrong hands. It’s on sale on ebay until July 14th.

‘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:
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.
