I vaguely remember the 'Roach Brooch' being introduced in a CSI episode, I think it was New york- I'm unsure, where a restaurant owner got into a debate with a customer who had this living, blinged-up cockroach which she wore as a brooch and there was a little sub-storyline revolving around these creatures.
I personally thought that were made-up, a myth as you will and thou
ght no one in their right mind would actually wear a living cockroach as a brooch- even if it is blinged up... well, I was prooven wrong.
It is real and many celebrities, including Kim Kardashian have even been spotted wearing one!
As much as I'm for all things kooky, I have to think- really? Maybe its just my phobia against ALL insect which is prompting my very squeemish-NONONO- approach to the Roach Brooch.
The originator of these creations was Jared Gold, a designer who I highly respect and adore.
I'm not going to lie, they are beautiful to look at despite the hairs rising on the back of my neck in an uncomfortable twinge, but I don't think I would wear one
What are your guys thoughts? Would you wear a living Roach Brooch?
