I find this stuff very fascinating. I'm particularly into the Victorian era memento mori things, as so many aspects of that time period are interesting and creepy. I'd love to get my hands on some antiques that involved memento mori stuff, but it's pretty pricey.

I think things made of the deceased individual's hair is both slightly off-putting yet beautiful.
