'Tis the holiday season, people are going crazy shopping, and you know how there's that old cliche about "what to get for the girl who has everything?" Um, I GUARANTEE YOU that the girl who has everything does NOT have a necklace made of a real parrot's head. Now don't freak and run off and scream on the phone to someone at PETA. Etsy artist Loved To Death, who specializes in taxidermized jewelery -- bird wing necklaces or mouse butcher shop dioramas (see below), anyone? -- didn't hack off this poor parrot's head and mount it. The parrot died of natural causes (loneliness?) and is living a rich, ostensibly joyful second life as a $350 necklace. Call me skittish, but I'd prefer the Justin Bieber scarf in my stocking.
