Victorian woven hair brooch
Morning Glory Antiques and Jewelry has a truly stunning--albeit slightly baffling--array of hair jewelry. Some of the jewelry was apparently constructed and intended as specific memento mori from the hair of a dead loved one. Other pieces it seems were made "just cause." This was a kind of offbeat but very real art-form, and it's intriguing to examine the tradition and techniques of jewelry made from hair. This Victorian basket weave brooch is a fine example of the craft and of the wide selection at Morning Glory.
