Artist Creates Jewelry for Cancer Patients Using Their Own Hair

Sybille Paulsen, an artist in Berlin, calls her project Tangible Truths. Cancer patients often lose their hair as a result of chemotherapy. Rather than surrendering their hair through gradual loss, Paulsen gives them a different way to wear their hair. Locks of hair become woven pieces of jewelry that patients can wear even after recovery. Pictured above is Mary Beth, her first client in the project and now a friend, wearing her hair as a necklace.
