These human hair necklaces by contemporary jeweller and artist Kerry Howley, are stunning – although pretty itchy I’d imagine. I’d love to know how she makes them.
‘The necklaces are made of human hair, a familiar material that we take pride in. However once off of the body hair becomes an innate source of aversion. Kerry wanted to see if she could make discarded hair attractive again. Through the familiar form of a necklace, and using patterns and symmetry that are instinctively pleasing, Kerry has created a delicate balance between the viewer/wearer’s feelings of aversion and attraction.’
