You may recognize the title as a song by Jack Off Jill, which is actually quite a good song. Now, I know the song is about something much different... but I took it literally, and made this.

There is a bit of a story behind this piece. For years and years, like this song suggests,

"Pale white skin with strawberry gashes all over..."

I was a victim of this for about 10 years, and it was to the point where the scars and wounds got so bad that I couldn't wear bathing suits without someone gasping in horror. I wanted to stop, immensely. But more than anything, I wanted to bring awareness to this issue, namely because it is a growing problem in our young society.

This pendant stands for something important. The strawberry represents a flawless and beautiful surface, ripe and full of vibrance - it is YOU. The gashes are the wounds in which we inflict on ourselves when we feel hurt, lost, and alone.

It is to bring awareness that there is a problem amongst our youth, and that inflicting pain upon ourselves has become so common, yet most of us do not want to talk about it or are scared to do so.

There is another way. And the way isn't through the razor.

Would you like to get a better understanding of self-injury? I have written an article that may be informative to you:

This necklace seems to be a conversation starter, as it is impossible not to notice it. If you are wearing one, and someone asks what it means, you may tell them that it is to raise awareness of a growing problem in our young teens. Let's talk about the problem, stop keeping it so taboo, and make people aware so that they know how to help those who need it. Because suffering in silence will only make things worse.

$10.00 from EACH necklace will be donated to the Canadian Mental Health Association. :)

The deadline for Christmas orders is Sunday, December 8th. I cannot guarantee that anything ordered after this date will arrive by Christmas, as I am shipping from Canada. Sorry for the inconvenience!

This piece is about 1 1/4" tall and is made from polymer clay. It has a loop in the top that is attached to a keyring style jumpring that is threaded onto an 18" black stainless steel neck wire with barrel clasp.

Since this item is thin enough to fit through the 2cm slot at Canada Post, this creation can be shipped at a smaller price than my other items. It is shipped in protective plastic packed inside of a recyclable padded kraft paper envelope.

If you would like this item shipped in a little gift box like the larger items in my shop, please just send a message letting me know, and I will make the necessary shipping price change for you.
