A Peek at Bruce Labruce’s Cheeky New Jewelry Line
With gold-plated and silver pieces made in collaboration with jeweler Jonathan Johnson...
Entertainment 06 Jan 2019

The provocateur, photographer, writer and filmmaker Bruce LaBruce is at it again with a new line of cheeky jewelry, bearing phrases like “I am a witch” and “Daddy.”
With gold-plated and silver pieces made in collaboration with jeweler Jonathan Johnson, LaBruce’s new line shows that jewelry can be fun and nasty. The “Fucker” ring is hard to resist, written in an almost gothic font, and both the Mother and the Fucker ring can be worn together (So can the Butch ring and the Bitch ring). The obscene is a trademark of LaBruce, naturally.

“I’m just so over so much politesse, so much tiptoeing around words, and the whole language police,” he said in an interview earlier this year. “I think in a way it’s important to keep these kinds of taboo words active just because people are already totally paranoid about what they can say or should say and the kind of language they should use.”
