When it comes to edgy statement necklaces, Gritty Jewelry is a cut above, and just in time for Halloween.

Cleavers, daggers, axes and scissors are all hand-sawed by local artist Kim Merritt at Twilight Gallery in West Seattle. Necklaces — as well as earring and rings — are crafted from sterling silver and copper to create uncommon and decidedly badass pieces.

The cleaver design, a favorite among chefs and foodies, even has riveted handles for an authentic feel. Halloween is a perfect time to try one on and bring out your dark side.

$65–$121 at Sassafras (downtown), Fremont Jewelry Design (Fremont), Twilight Gallery (West Seattle) and grittyjewelry.com
