Heart on your sleeve

Has anyone else noticed the trend in decorative anatomy?

I'm used to seeing anatomical images at work, though usually on a poster or textbook.  It's another thing entirely to see these images as jewelry.   I love the juxtaposition when these things adorn the outside of a neck, a wrist, a finger.

Now, some people just can't stomach these types of images.

They aren't for the faint-of-heart.

So, if you see one of these items on a friend, just take a deep breath...

Any squeamishness is just in your mind.

Try to see these beautiful pieces as I do:  art, not ick!

I have a heart pendant that I bought at the bodies exposition in Montreal which allows you to visualize all the valves.
