I am so in love with Van Der Glas's shop.  I want everything:

I love these pieces both as art jewelry and wear-it-everywhere jewelry. She's managed to take something slightly horrifying: cast off pieces of bodies; and made them into something hauntingly beautiful.  I especially love the teeth rings.  I'm also very interested in what she has to say about her materials:

"Hair and teeth were brushed, treated with colours and bleaches; fingernails were grown for show, painted and emphasized. When attached to the body, they are central to social values of beauty yet when they become disattached, the meanings they hold drastically transform."

And in case you were wondering, I like to make things out of hair, too.
