Hair Embroidery

Artist Laura Normandin's media of choice for her embroidery project is a little bit unusual: she used human hair!

I saw some amazing hair embroideries from an artist named Kate Kretz a few years ago...I think she still does them... they look like really detailed, elaborate drawings. She uses her own hair and her boyfriend's hair.

Her website is and I think she has a blog too, where she shows the work in progress.

In the Victorian era, hair art, especially jewelry was strikingly common. Some women even kept a special vase like thing on their dressers called a "hair receiver" to keep hair collected from their brushes for using in craft projects. Tons of girls from that era made super elaborate things from human hair, either their own or a loved one's. I guess the fairly modern concept of hair having germs kind of killed the appeal.
