Bright and Beautiful. And Strange

First off, check out this absolutely lovely blog post, called “A Bracelet of Bright Hair”, about — of all things — hair jewelry. Or more accurately, in the words of Pamphilia, the scholarly young blogger, “pieces of needle lace worked in human hair c. 1625-1665”.

And while you’re at Pamphilia’s post, do click on the illustrations (from the Victoria and Albert Museum’s giant searchable database of images) to see them better.

And also go here, for the John Donne poem, “The Relique,” source of the gorgeous, haunting phrase “a bracelet of bright hair.”
