Dreaming of Downton

{Image from here}

INSPIRATION 2014 #7: After watching the first episode of Downton Abbey this past Sunday, my interest in objects of mourning has been renewed. Above is a beautiful selection of various kinds of mourning jewelry ~ several made with human hair. You will also notice that tiny pearls are used in many of the pieces ~ they symbolize tears.

I've learnt something new Julie - that pearls symbolise tears. A really unusual image!
