Melanie Bilenker

These gorgeous, delicate jewelry creations by Melanie Bilenker are made using the artist's own hair. She eloquently describes her process:

"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 remnants. I do not reproduce events, but quiet minutes, the mundane, the domestic, the ordinary moments".
