Strangest Jewelry You'll See Today (8 pics)

We thought we'd seen it all, when it came to jewelry, until we came across these strange pieces by Imme van der Haak. Using gold plated brass, he distorts his models faces, making us think twice about how and where jewelry should be worn.

Just why does he do this? As Imme states, "In my work I try to discuss in a playful way the ideas which seem obvious about what is 'normal'. In my photographs and films I transform the human body by using materials which lace up parts of the body, change the silhouette or influence in a different way the form of the body. It is all about changing forms and transformations, although it is not my intention to shock, but to reveal the idea that every form has its own beauty. In this way I comment in an expressive way on the current ideas about beauty."
