If It's Tastefully Done, Would You Wear Hair Jewelry?

When it comes to using hair as a material, things could go either way. A lot of the results are tacky, but then there's the tastefully done. Brooklyn designer Larissa De Souza Varges's hair-meets-jewelry line falls more into the latter category. Take this Large Loop Earring ($80), for instance.

Varges also offers up customized pieces, and openly admits on her Etsy store page that the notion of using hair can seem "creepy." However, she's working on reviving the craft that was popularized around the time of Louis XIV's reign, when hair of deceased loved ones was used in jewelry as a memento. What's your take on hair jewelry? Would you wear it if it was tastefully done, or is it all just a bit too strange for your taste?

I think it'd creep a lot of people out, but then again, it would be an interesting conversation piece. :p

No I wouldn't were this I just don't get it. There are many other places on your body that you can wear jewelry...but i dont think your hair should be one of them.

Animal fur is pretty controversial too. I wouldn't wear that either. And feathers can just look ridiculous.

I wouldn't wear it. The idea sort of weirds me out a little for some reason.

I'd wear it. I find this very interesting. Hair is a thing of beauty...why not display it in jewelry? Animal fur and feathers are used, why not human hair?

NO. Once hair detatches itself from the body, out it goes and not into jewelry.
