Saturday, January 19, 2008Here today, hair forever...
"The Victorians kept lockets of hair and miniature portraits painted with ground hair and pigment to secure the memory of a lost love.

I do not reproduce events, but quiet minutes, the mundane, the domestic, the ordinary moments." Melanie Bilenker
They're not fantastical or immediately attention grabbing pieces of jewellery, but look closely and you'll see the beauty lies in the truth. She hasn't tried to glamorize anything, instead choosing to remember the moments that really make up a person's life.
And I know there's a lot of pictures, but they're so beautiful I couldn't choose which I wanted to put here (most are brooches).
