Flesh-Adorned Accessories
I-Ting Ho Skin Secret Skin Secret Turns Jewelry into a Second Epidermis

The I-Ting Ho Skin Secret line of jewelry and accessories is a curious experiment that uses the epidermis as a distorting ornamental pattern.

I-Ting Ho uses cut-outs of belly buttons to decorate artful tie necklaces. Dimpled folding flesh becomes the focal point for drooping chains and stitched skin is the eye-catching image for an index finger ring. I-Ting Ho describes her fashion line as being able to “conflict with the audience.” Instead of gleaming, perfect skin that every individual strives to achieve, she uses flesh that blemished, bruised and pock-mocked.

The I-Ting Ho Skin Secret line was inspired by the idea of people dressing themselves up with embellished purses, rings and other accessories that become a second skin to them. She wanted to make a line of taboo adornments that capitalize on the phrase “second skin.”
