Artist Melanie Bilenker creates stunning pieces of jewelry, amazingly using her own hair to draw memories from her life.
She writes on her website:
"The Victorians kept lockets of hair and miniature portraits painted with ground hair and pigment to secure the memory of a lost love. In much the same way, I secure my memories through photographic images rendered in lines of my own hair, the physical remnant. I do not reproduce events, but quiet minutes, the mundane, the domestic, the ordinary moments."
