My first book, ONCE UPON A CLOUD with Dial Press at Penguin is finally finished! Its up for preorder -here- and will be in stores in Spring 2015. These are some of the pages of characters little Celeste meets in the story.
I know we in our sensible times tend to find the (up to the)Victorian period habit of making jewellery out of people’s hair kind of gross
but you have to admit
Some of it is
pretty fucking impressive.
First half of 19th century
Armlets were used by both men and women in India and Iran from the 17th century. They especially took the form of jeweled bands, and a princely bazuband could hold numerous and large gemstones, as we can see on the miniature on the front of this armlet. According to the inscription, it depicts Prince Tahmasp Mirza, grandson of the ruling Fath Ali Shah. The portrait of the shah’s son, Muhammad Ali Mirza, is on the armlet’s pendant, which does not belong to the museum. As Muhammad Ali Mirza was governor of Kermansha, the two bazubands were probably worn by one of the Qajar family’s faithful subjects in this Iranian province.
