Re: What critter jewelry would you never wear?

Bats...I have several,pieces of jewelry..all critters...made by a husband wife team. I told him of a terrible bat experience I had. When I saw him again, he had made me a necklace with a bat on it.  The work was beautiful, well made, and he thought it would give me a chuckle.

 

I felt terrible, but I didn't purchase.

Most of my life I had a moth phobia.  I remember hauling a 28 ft. trailer for work on the interstate years ago.  A moth flew out of somewhere into my face and it was all I could do to pull off the road safely.  I have conditioned myself to think of moths as brown butterflies.  It doesn't completely work but at least I don't make a fool out of myself when one gets near me.  So I'll add a moth to my octopus post.  I actually like some of the snake prints but DH hates snakes so I don't buy them.

None.  I just don't like to wear them.  Be it jewelry or even the animal prints in clothing.  Just don't wear it.

No reptiles, no insects!!  

 

I'm sure Darwin could prove the necessity for these life forms in the ecosystems and their evolutionary importance.

 

I'm repulsed by both and will not want to be seen wearing any image of such living things on my clothes, wrists, neck or earlobes. 

Now giraffes are my absolute favorite creatures. I'd wear a small giraffe pin or a pendant. (I'd consider a small giraffe tattoo, but I doubt I'll commit to that.)

I wouldn't wear Scorpions or an Octopus

No snakes for me.

 

I actually have an octopus ring (not the one that was offered as a LTS.)  They are fascinating, intelligent creatures.  And I'm all about ocean life, and have a lot of ocean themed jewelry.
