Designer challenges beauty with a surreal and eerie collection of attention-grabbing pieces.

Taiwan-based designer and recent graduate I-Ting Ho has created an interesting collection of jewelries and accessories that are made to look like skin. The Skin Secret collection is made from moulded silicone rubber and textured to look like dimpled skin and nipples, before the flaps of ‘skin’ are attached to metal parts or stitched together.

The unusual pieces are definitely not for the faint-hearted and Ho explains that:

I want to create a challenging situation, a conflicting dialogue with the audience. People just cannot move their eyes away from those disgusting scenes that grab their attention.

The concept behind the works is based on self-awareness and how people use objects to reflect their personality, taste, and behaviors.
