The armor jewelry of Japanese designer Taro Hanabusa, who is more readily referred to as Fangophilia, offers something very different for fashion-forward individuals. As though inspired by the paper mache projects of grade school students, the armor jewelry depict molds of isolated body parts including ears, cheeks, kneecaps, fingers, and more. It can also be likened to grills considering some of the molds involve teeth.
The photoshoot displaying many of the armor jewelry designs give them a dark and Goth-like appeal. Yet the piecse could easily make appearance in sleeker high fashion editorials as well. Made out of silver, the custom jewelry pieces reflect a sense of intimacy, especially between the designer and his lucky customers.
