Hair of the Dog

INSPIRATION 2014 #8: Yesterday's inspiration showed some actual mourning jewelry ~ today, here are some pages from an antique catalog (circa 1870) of Victorian jewelry patterns to be made from hair ~ you may recognize some pieces that are similar to the jewelry shown earlier. Here is a great article that covers lots of information about Victorian Hairwork.
