!! OMG, pop your finger in his flesh-hoop: Sruli Recht's Forget-Me-Knot Ring !!


If someone gave me this ring for Valentine's day, I guarantee I would definitely forget-them-knot!
Sruli Recht creates some of the most innovative and beautiful garments and jewellery in the world. He is always asking questions about the use of animal products in fashion. He has previously created pieces from stillborn lamb leather and silk-injected goat's skins, and recently documented a performance/surgery during which he had a 110mm x 10mm strip of skin from his abdomen removed, which was salted, tanned and mounted to a 24kt gold ring, which can be purchased for €350,000.


You can watch the 'performance' after the jump. It's NOT SAFE FOR's barely safe for anywhere; it's pretty gross but that ring is pretty beautiful though.

So inspiring! I'm off to my kitchenette to drink the rest of that oozo, grab a bread knife and get going with my circumcision valentines ring, I can't afford gold so it's just going to be a fleshy hoop really.

Sruli Recht's surgery/performance to remove the skin for his Forget-Me-Knot ring:

She's a real hooper that one!

A skin covered ring? The first thing that pops into my mind:
"It rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again."
