It's HIDEOUS, it's REPULSIVE...but is it UGLY?

I have been working feverishly to complete my entry in the 2008 Ugly Necklace Contest sponsored by "Land of Odds" - it's due to them no later than the 15th. Click on the link to read all about it: They will be selecting 10 finalists, and then the finalists will be posted and anyone who wants to can vote on their favorite one. My necklace is a "Hawaii Souvenir and Photo Memorial Road-Kill Necklace Lei". It is meant to wear anytime of the year. (yeah right - it was really hard to even pick it up) It had to be accompanied by a poem.....the poem pretty well sums it up ( click to enlarge).
And here's a photo of the necklace.
Just so you know, the critters were dried, sterilized and microwaved before being encased in epoxy. I have close-ups...but they're so gross I put the pics in a slide show. BE FOREWARNED! it really is YUCKY!
.........but is it Ugly enough?

Oh my! It's certainly intriguing; and, it is ugly in a fascinating way (sort of like watching an accident).

I like your "disclaimer". While indeed gross, your necklace is creative idea. Best wishes on your contest entry.
