A woman cut off half her pinky finger and now wears it as a pendant around her neck.
Torz Reynolds numbed her little finger on her left hand and then used a bolt cutter to saw half of it clean off.
To begin with, the Essex body piercer and artist says she put it in the freezer next to some frozen peas and forgot about it.
But then Torz put it with alcohol solution in a glass veil to wear as an occasional necklace. Torz said she thought the idea was “cute” and had thought of doing it for years. She calls the finger ‘wiggles’.
The 30-year-old said: “I forgot it was there. You don’t want to waste it so why not turn it into a necklace?
“I thought a necklace would be the easiest thing to make and I wanted to do something to mark Wiggles’ first birthday.”
Torz recently held a photoshoot for Wiggles to celebrate his (?) first birthday. Her boyfriend, meanwhile, bought her remaining stump miniature hats.
“The hats were a present from my boyfriend for Wiggles’ birthday. I thought it was brilliant, they look like they’re the Village People,” she said.
“A lot of people have said they’re awesome – everyone knows I don’t take anything seriously.”
Torz says she was inspired to go ahead with the chop after a friend did the same thing.
In preparation for the self-imposed amputation, she practised bending it backwards to see what life would be like with only half a little finger on her left hand.
Torz has a history of peculiarity. After she split up with her last boyfriend for cheating on her in 2014, she cut off a tattooon her forearm and sent it to him in the post.
“I packaged it up so it really did look like a present,” she said.
“I even used different handwriting so he’d have no idea that it was me. I can’t imagine what his reaction was. I wish I could have been there to see it.”
