12-ply square bracelet

2013-06-07_19.42.15

6/16/13.  I made this bracelet for my mother-in-law from the multi-colored tail of my horse Highlander, a chestnut gelding.  She and my father-in-law, a barber, live in Kansas City.  Years ago during a visit, they took me to former hairdresser Leila Cohoon’s museum in the suburb of Independence.  The Hair Museum contains an AMAZING collection of human hair made into wearable and hang-able art, mainly during the Victorian Era.  To learn more, Google the Hair Museum.  Or go on a virtual tour with Leila at http://www.roadsideamerica.com/video/19552.
