“I Am Who They Were” Necklace by Artist Ashley Gilreath 2011. Read the history behind this amazing piece and see more photos at Ashley Gilreath here. Ms. Gilreath created this necklace by casting dollhouse frames in silver and bronze and printing family portraits directly onto microscope glass.
I am so inspired by this project. Not only is the necklace beautiful, but it carries such history and symbolic meaning. More than fashion, it is a statement about the past and its direct ties to the future, and the people who contribute to make us who we are.
