Memento Mori

Hmmm....my anniversary is coming up on Saturday. I wonder if my wife would like a gift of personalized jewelry? This necklace of toenails was assembled by ultrarunner Jan Ryerse. He collected fallen body parts after the Badwater, Western States, and other ultra-ordeals, from his own feet and other donors. (Disgusting image courtesy of Scott Dunlap's Trail Runner's Blog.) What's next? The Reinhold Messner frozen-toe charm bracelet?
