Skin Ring

Forget Me Knot

Iceland-based fashion designer Sruli Recht had a slice of skin surgically removed from his own belly to make this ring.

After the operation, the 110 by 10 millimetre strip of skin was salted and tanned, then mounted on a 24 carat gold band to create the piece of jewellery, which can be purchased for €350,000.

There is, of course, a video.

    He is the one who is called the Steel General. That is not a suit of armor that he is wearing; it is his body. [...] He wears a ring of tanned human flesh on his little finger, because it would be senseless and noisy for him to wear metal jewelry. The flesh was once his; at least, it helped to surround him at one time long ago.
