sculptural wearable wool: hisano takei

i love these outsized organic wearable sculptural necklaces by american artist/jewelry maker hisano takei (via crust station). anything that pushes the limits of normality in such a thoughtful way with use of texture and dimension in the way that these sculptural pieces do is a winner in my book. i like the idea that they are so dominant in their look, due to their size...they would *be* an outfit, and the person wearing them would be secondary to them, art wearing the person rather than the person wearing art. a fun way of playing with proportion that's not for the faint of (fashion) heart.
