Body jewelry is a reoccurring fashion accessory that most see during festival season. Designer Soo Kyung Bae is now using the popular fashion fad to raise awareness of a worrying body standard society is encouraging through social media.

The thigh gap is social media's latest buzz-worthy that has turned into a troublesome body aspiration for many young women. Many users of popular social media sites, such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, insist that a thigh gap is interchangeable with physical beauty. Jewelry designer Soo Kyung Bae has used her creative talents to create bespoke gold chains made to hang in the space created by two concave thighs.

This interesting piece of body jewelry is designed to shame society's latest beauty standard while also making light fun of this situation.
