Forget Me Not
This necklace is about my father. It's modeled after Victorian mourning jewelry--painted black to represent jet and with both a picture of my father and some of his hair inside the locket. The image is one I took when I moved to Asheville from Seattle in 2007. My parents helped me move and spent a week with me getting my apartment ready. It was the last time I had true quality time with my dad before he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's a few years later. The image is obscured with his hair and further blurred by scratched acrylic.
