    Ick? Why did I buy these? It was 1989 and the price was right. I wore them to hear my favorite bands: Jesus & Mary Chain, Cult and Depeche Mode. I've enjoyed the recent creepy jewelry posts so wanted to share these resin bangles embedded (thankfully) with little scorpions and roaches bigger (thankfully) than the ones in my 1920's apartment. Ick!

    Modeled by the lovely Hannah hand who is also a little creepy :-)

    Gudrun - I added my 1970's ant ring for you :-)

      I am all over those. Saw Jesus and Mary Chain open for Iggy Popp in the 80s. Jesus and Mary much better. Iggy was much too commercial at that point.

      Def Halloween . Love Hannah though.

      So many nice comments! Thanks Bill, I have worn them for Halloween and I need to figure out a way to add the lovely Hannah to my costume this year.

      Bonnie - Yes, the Thing from Adams Family! I don't like (real) bugs. These are still real.

      Fort - that I did not see. I think I saw them open for Peter Murphy. It was at a small theatre in LA but I don't remember where because I didn't drive up from SD and both bands were GREAT! Iggy....well yes....have you seen the movie Smoke & Cigarettes? He's in a scene w/Tom Waits (who I've seen too at a small bar). Just great.

      Thank you Wandless - yes Halloween with Hannah too!

      Thanks all for loving the creepy crawlers: Hel1, iggy, Thomas, Ken, boysfarm (your ring is SO great) and Phil :-)

      OMG! and I thought I am the only one buying creepy stuff - LOL
      I have a ring with a bug inside. I bought it a few weeks ago because there was nothing good to buy for a long time. The ring was in the store forever, and finally I decided that it would come home with me. I'll post it when I get a chance:)

      Oh my, it even looks like her hand is all bitten up. Isn't there a saying, "Don't bite the hand that feeds you"? Boo hisss, bad joke! haha yes, this had the yuk factor going on. I've got one for you too. It's pretty darn creepy. Will post anyway.

      Thanks everyone for your comments Gudrun - I posted my ant in lucite ring for you This is from the 1970's. It's a better quality plastic than the bracelets :-)

      Share - yes, this is an old manikin hand - I believe from the 1950's. Old and beaten up and bitten up....post your creepy item!!

      Bijou, Kyra and Alan: Thanks for your comments about Hannah and the bugs....old and bitten LOL. I love old display items and was excited to find Hannah the lovely hand for $2!!

      I know gargoyle - that's why I don't wear these very often - but a fun conversation starter on Halloween.

      Thank you friends for loving the creepy crawlers!
