These jewelry pieces by Anna Schwamborn were created using the hair and cremated ashes of deceased loved ones. While kinda creepy, these jewelry pieces are actually pretty sentimental.

Anna Schwamborn has worked for such major fashion labels as Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood. These objects are meant to be worn near the mourner's body as a symbol of the physical connection between the individuals even after death.

Implications - Anna Schwamborn stated that she wanted to create something that would "act as an important medium of remembering a passed away loved one." The gallery features a bracelet and a necklace that features human hair in the design. Although the idea may tug at heart strings, it still is slightly morbid.
