Scar Tissue That I Wish You Saw

Scar NecklaceHere’s an interesting wrinkle (so to speak) in personalized jewelry: It’s My Scar will recreate one of your scars as jewelry. You send them a photo of your scar, they replicate the shape and texture as closely as possible in wax, then they use that model to cast the jewelry in the metal of your choice. Prices vary depending upon size and metal, but appear to start around $200.

Their motto is “Claim your past and wear your story,” and their gallery includes some of their customers’ explanations of their scar jewelry. The pieces are certainly unique, and I like the idea of turning a disfigurement into art.
