Ah, the humble necklace. Perhaps one reason the necklace has proven to be such a timeless form of jewelry is its versatility – anything that can be worn around the neck or hang from a chain makes a fine necklace. Of course, where there’s room for creative, people will always put some unique spins on a simple idea.
1. Sea Monkey Necklace
This Sea Monkey locket holds enough water and food to hatch two sea monkeys. Now you can carry your closest underwater pets with you wherever you go.
2. Pixilated Jewelry
Mike and Maaike stole images of some of the world’s most expensive jewelry, converted them to a low-resolution format, and printed them on leather in a blown-up, pixilated form. Artistic commentary and niche fashion accessory all in one.
3. All Fall Down
21 sterling silver chairs arranged in a circle. Probably not too comfortable, but definitely unique!
4. Phonograph Necklace
Brooklyn-based jewelry designer Mary Andrews created this distinctive piece, a bronze phonograph pendant on a chain.
5. Shark Mouth Pendant
This necklace was actually cast from the jaw of a small shark and recast in silver.
6. Hands on Heart
This necklace from Hopeless Romantic features wooden hands making a heart shape. The designer jokes that they “may come in handy if perhaps you have one of your hands tied and your mouth taped shut, and need to demonstrate your feelings to someone special”.
7. Do You Have a Smoke?
For those who can never go without a pack. This tiny bottle contains a dangling miniature pack of Marlboro cigarettes.
8. Wine Glass Holder
This one is more practical than beautiful. Keep your wine close to your heart and your hands free.
9. Momenta: The PC Necklace
The Momenta, an entry in Microsoft’s Next-Gen PC competition, is designed to help you capture precious moments on the run by saving text messages and pictures. It can also monitor your heartbeat, and comes with Wi-Fi capability.
10. Gas Mask
No, it won’t save you in an emergency, but it’s pretty interesting nonetheless. This gas mask was taken from a vintage doll and recast in silver.
11. Roll of Toilet Paper
The toilet paper for this roll is made of beads and properly oriented so that it unrolls from the top, just like a real roll of toilet paper.
12. Rubik’s Cube
This Rubik’s Cube necklace is actually playable, so you get two things in one.
13. Severed Arm
For the macabre at heart, this severed arm necklace is the stuff of slasher flicks and Halloween gags in fashion form.
You’ll never get closer to the big guy than when you’ve got him hanging from your neck. This one’s perfect for any armchair cryptozoologist.
15. Spiked Pacifier
Needless to say, you’ll want to keep this particularly weird pacifier away from children.
Most of these weird necklaces are available for purchase on the web, and the majority are made by independent designers or artists. These necklaces are perfect for anyone wanting to showcase their inner weird, and that’s what fashion is all about – expression.
