Ferris won first place in jewelry supply website landofodds.coms annual Ugly Necklace Contest.
Ferris, a jewelry designer by trade, submitted a mobile-esque creation of bottles of hot sauce, cajun seasonings, a pine air freshener and a fork and knife, which all hang from a telephone cord. Ferris calls it, My Cajun Condiment Collar.
Its art that can also be used for shucking and eating oysters, which is what Ferris had in mind while designing the ghastly choker.
Ferris isnt worried that winning the ugly contest will hurt her career as a jewlery maker, although she admits other family members are not so sure. She says, My nephew said, Aunt Jann, do they know you make pretty stuff too?
Ferris award is the very odd amount $992.93 which she must spend on landofodds.com.
