American designer Jennifer Crupi is behind these strange-looking jewelry pieces. According to the Daily Mail, the pieces (which are part of a collection called "Ornamental Hands") were actually designed to "amplify body language and "encourage gesture" by forcing the body to display certain positions. Crupi says her work is inspired by other people and their body language towards one another.

"Part of my interest in body language also stems from the fact that I have always been a very self-concious person," Crupi tells the Daily Mail. "I seem to constantly be aware of how I look and am perceived by others."

Crupi says her line of jewelry makes it easy for the wearers to portray beautiful gestures. "Rather than wearing a bracelet to adorn your hand, why not wear a bracelet that positions your hand in a decorative and elegant way?"
