*Are you a true chicken lover? I mean of the ridiculous kind. Do you love chicken so much that even after all the meat is gone, you find yourself sucking on the bones?
If this scenario adequately describes you, listen up. Because the creators must’ve had you in mind when they came up with the ludicrous idea to make jewelry out of real chicken wing bones.
14-carat gold chicken wing bones to be exact.
I know. I know. W.T.F?
Starting tomorrow at 10a.m. EST kentuckyforkentucky.com will be selling a limited number of chicken wings dipped in 14-karat gold.
So if this sounds like a must-have, hopefully you will be one of the lucky 20 to grab a gold chicken wing necklace to have forever more.
According to the Los Angeles Times, this is how the whole thing came about:
Kentucky for Kentucky teamed up with Meghan Carroll of Meg C Jewelry, who was inspired to create the necklaces, dubbed “Wang,” after a night full of KFC chicken wings.
Carroll and her boyfriend ate 25 wings from a KFC in Kentucky, then cleaned the bones with soap and water. She let them dry, then painted the bones with a varnish, graphite conductive paint and coated them in copper. The bones were then plated in 14-karat gold.
“Like Willy Wonka’s Everlasting Gobstopper we’ve figured out a way to make it possible to savor a single piece of Kentucky Fried Chicken forever,” writes Kentucky for Kentucky on its website. “For-ever and ever. We all win.”
So if you’re down with wearing fowl jewelry, the regular size bone, um, necklace retails for $130 and a larger size for $160.
Editor’s Note: There is a previous version of this story that reported the necklaces were being sold by Kentucky Fried Chicken — that is not the case.
