The placard reads: "In the 1880's, women often used their hair as a medium for making jewelry as well as home decorations. These items served as mementos of family and friends."
Now, I'll admit that the details of this piece are amazing and I have been known to recycle just about anything for a craft project... but HAIR???!
I'd love to hear if anyone reading this has made something out of human hair... anyone?
By the way, as a knitter and a shedding pet owner, I have seriously considered taking up spinning to utilize all the fur that floats around the hardwood floors of our house. I'm not sure how well dog and cat fur spin into yarn... but it's been a thought I've had. :)
Have a great weekend! Do something creative today!
