I've written about hair jewelry before but Melanie Bilenker's work is different. Way different. She works with hair alright but she sculpts these fine strands into pictures which are mounted on rings, pendants and brooches.

Besides hair, this US based artist and jewelry designer uses precious metals like gold and sterling silver, pigment and epoxy resin to complete her pieces. It is hard to imagine how she moved each hair into position for her creations look like delicate pencil drawings.

Her subject matter is also innovative because she is combines art with jewelry design. Many of her designs show sketches of everyday life including "clean clothes" as shown in this brooch or cutting an apple, the design for a pendant.

Pretty cool designs!
