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 said she had it/them – I’m not 100 per cent sure on proper labia etiquette – snipped off during a designer vagina procedure.
She chose to document 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.

Just to fill you in, the NHS define a labiaplasty as:
A 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.

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 tikets and old season tickets!
According to her YouTube page, Tracy says she first decided to keep the ‘cut-offs’ as a trophy because she’d experienced pain from the excess skin.
However, the removed labia began to turn grey and wrinkly after being kept in a jar of surgical fluid, so at this point, she decided to ‘transfrom my labia into an empowering pendant to be worn as a fashion accessory.’
In a video on YouTube, you can see how she transformed the genital body part into a glittery oval pendant, painting them red and sprinkling them with glitter in the process.
After creating the pendant, Tracy 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.’
Check out her video below:
According to the Daily Mail, Tracy continued:
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.
Hey, it’s her body and Tracy can do what she wants with it. In fact, she already has.
