MELANIE BILENKER CREATES INNOVATIVE JEWELRY WITH A TOUCH OF SENTIMENT.


MS. BILENKER ON HER ART:
"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."
HER PIECES ARE SUCH AN ORIGINAL APPROACH TO WEARABLE ART AND I WOULD DEFINITELY ROCK A PIECE (any of the fire-ass rings), WHAT DO YOU THINK?
