Live Jewellry
The use of gengineered creatures for personal adornment, for example; beautiful, brightly colored snakes as bracelets, necklaces or hairbands; colorful beetles worn like brooches or as earrings and so on.

The creatures' are altered for size, colors and meekness, quite often also equipped with scent-glands or various mechanisms of producing pleasing sounds. In some societies self-defense attributes are vectored in as well, such as charge-cells from electric eels or snake/spider venoms. The creature has virtually no intelligence of their own, all responses must be triggered by the wearer, either by a neural link or a physical stimuli.
