Angela Kirkpatrick is a post-mortem jewelry designer and silver smith who resides in the Pacific Northwest. She incorporates hair into custom modern jewelry designs inspired by Victorian Memento mori jewelry.
She has always admired Victorian craftsmanship and home craft. Angela came to make modern memento jewelry after learning silver-smithing from a close friend. She believes that there are many mourning traditions like these that deserve a revival.
She enjoys the process of custom work and takes great care with the materials she received to make her custom memorial jewelry. Angela is constantly amazed at the resilience of hair and what it can tell us about human culture when modern technology is applied to hair.
