Winona Johnson's Pimple Jewelry Is Creative, Also Gross

Zit Jewelry: It's Not For the Squeamish

If you really savor popping zits, so much so that you'd like to immortalize the activity in a piece of jewelry, artist Winona Johnson has just the thing. Her Pimple Popper Raw ring ($163) is handcrafted from sterling silver, copper, and enamel, topped off with a seed pearl. It also looks like a giant whitehead just begging to be exploded. The concept/verisimilitude are extremely high on ick factor, and I didn't want to assault everyone, so to see the pimple popper in all its glory, just keep reading.

The pimple popper ring is just Johnson's first foray into the world of epidermally inspired decoration. She says she'll be doing an entire series of skin-themed jewelry, so if you're more a fan of eczema or hives, you may get your very own themed pendant or brooch soon, too.
