A woman has taken fashion and genitalia to the next level by turning her own labia into jewellery – a necklace to be precise.
Tracy Kiss documented how she ‘upcycled’ the loose skin from either side of her vagina into a piece of art after she underwent labiaplasty surgery in December 2016.
Tracy Kiss said she had them – I’m not 100 percent sure on proper labia etiquette – snipped off during a designer vagina procedure.

Just to fill you in, the NHS define a labiaplasty as:
surgery to reuce the size of the labia minora – the flaps of skin either side of the vaginal opening.
Some women consider having a labiaplasty because they don’t like the look of their labia, or because the labia cause discomfort. This is a major decision you should weigh up carefully.
It’s natural and normal for a woman to have noticeable skin folds around her vaginal opening and, in most cases, this shouldn’t cause any problems.
You’ll have to fight for it, hurt for it, earn it in blood and live it on the daily; only then will you be rewarded with the sweetness of success my darlings.

Miss Kiss, who regularly posts on social media sites, including Instagram and Twitter, admits she’s a huge fan of keepsakes and sees her latest home-made jewellery as being no different.
And I thought I was pretty cool for keeping memory boxes filled with gig tickets and old season tickets!
Kiss says she first decided to keep the ‘cut-offs’ as a trophy because she’d experienced pain from the excess skin.
However, the tissue began to turn grey and wrinkly after being kept in a jar of surgical fluid.
At this point Kiss decided ‘to transform my labia into an empowering pendant to be worn as a fashion accessory.
Showing just how she transformed the genital body part into a glittery oval pendant, she first created a mini washing line from a cardboard box and hung up the two pieces of labia with pegs before painting them red and sprinkling glitter over them.
She writes of the process:
When I came across crystal jewellery-making, it seemed a quirky and easy way to make bespoke keepsakes for all purposes, albeit mine may be quite unique!
My 9-year-old daughter was thrilled to undertake a new summer holiday craft of her own creations and I had high hopes of rejuvenating my wilting labia in a jar.
After creating the pendant, Kiss said she was keen to share her story ‘to raise awareness of intimate health and self examination as well as opening up the discussion about the many health benefits of circumcision.
My labia have been successfully preserved, are colourful, bright and cheerful and mark the end of my suffering; one step closer to breaking down the taboo of female circumcision through a unique talking point and bespoke jewellery that I will cherish forever.
My labia pendant is a symbol of overcoming a silent struggle with the pain of excess tissue that society is too embarrassed to address…
Doctors, midwives and partners never commented on my genitals so I presumed every woman found riding a bicycle painful, wearing tight jeans sore and intercourse tender.
If I can raise sexual health awareness, open the door of communication and give others the same freedom from pain that I have now found then I hope this taboo subject and choice of preserving my labia is received by others in the positive light that I see it.
