Melanie Bilenker

"Clean clothes" - Locket - Gold, ebony, resin, pigment, hair - 2007

Melanie Bilenker's jewelry is a series of intimate acts. It is not simply the domestic imagery on her lockets, pendants, and rings - scenes of her sleeping, eating, getting dressed (and undressed) - but Melanie then re-creates these images out of single strands of her own hair. 'nuff said.

"Nap" - Brooch - Gold, ebony, resin, pigment, hair - 2008
