I've written about some amazing real hair jewelry artisans before, both past and present.  But not everyone was that taken with it.  Hair is a woman's crowning glory but yet some people appear to have an aversion to hair when it is no longer attached to someone's head.

Kerry Howley, a graduate of Middlesex University in the UK, rose to the challenge of exploring how materials can both attract and repulse.

Her award-winning graduate art collection does reveal "how we can feel these seemingly opposing emotional responses simultaneously."

She worked with a 30 cm length of trimmed hair given to her by a Japanese friend of her mother's who had waist length hair.  Each of the five wallpaper design inspired necklaces Kerry created took her over 60 hours to do. Amazingly intricate work!!
