Hair wreath

6. Hair Wreath

Above the fainting couch in the front parlor you will find a Hair Wreath.  It is made with human hair wrapped our wire to form the intricate design.  These were often done in mourning to remember people by, sometimes just a small pin or brooch, other times more elaborate.

Oddly enough this is gaining I popularity these days.  After all if you have your grandmother’s hair, you have her DNA.
