Designer Makes Brooches From Roaches
Insects Kept On Leash

POSTED: 7:11 am PST March 23, 2006
UPDATED: 8:40 am PST March 23, 2006

SALT LAKE CITY -- The latest thing in spring jewelry moves while you have it on.

A designer in Salt Lake City has come up with a brooch made from a roach.

The bejeweled insects are kept on a leash, giving them room to roam over your coordinated top.

The brooches cost $40 in the store and $80 if purchased online.

The name of the Salt Lake City store where the broaches are available is Black Chandelier.
ok this is just a little gross
not to mention isn't it slightly inhumane even if it is just a little icky roach?

i wonder what the PETA people will say about it
