Jewelry designer Peter Von Erickson has created another shocking, yet timely, piece that emulates the puncture wounds put forth by vampires. At least, that's what he intended. However, because the choker necklace looks like blood dripping down the wearer's neck, and spans the circumference of the neck, it looks more like the aftermath of a visit to Sweeney Todd's barbershop than a run-in with a vampire.

While morbid, this choker is perfect for people obsessed with the macabre and mysterious, the gothic and grotesque. With a society that is completely hung up on vampires, werewolves and other mythical creatures, this necklace is sure to go a long way. It's true that people are drawn to dark subjects, which Von Erickson has discovered, providing these people with a way to express their grotesque obsessions through fashion.
