Contemporary Hairwork

{image from here}

INSPIRATION 2014  #12:  Artist Kerry Howley is a contemporary artist who uses hair as her medium when creating her unique jewelry.  A quote from this article describes the concept behind her work: "Howley’s collection, Attraction/Aversion is an experiment in psychology. Howley meditates on the idea that while on our heads, hair is a precious possession, something we “take pride in.” Yet once it is cut off, we gain an aversion to it."
