I Live Here Now, Part 12: A First Look

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. 

sterling silver, spray paint, acrylic, picture of my father, my father's hair 

Thanks for reading.
