Bizarre as it seems, real meat-formed jewelry is entering the fashion world. And why not? There could be a veritable smorgasbord of meaty items that can be fashioned to rev up your creative appetite.

Pforzheim University's School of Design graduate Stephanie Hensle creates these trinkets from resin casts of genuine deli counter morsels.

So, with the ham necklace, should that be red wine or white?

Implications - The Fast Company website posed some interesting questions about the meaty jewelry pieces. They ask, is the jewelry a "comment on our over-consumption of meat?" Or are they a "homage to unappreciated beauty?" People can easily side with both questions depending on their meat preference; although the meat jewelry does indeed look quite disturbing.
