Reimagined Components: Vintage sterling silver portrait of a crouching red haired woman strung on 18 1/2" 2 mm sterling silver rectangular link chain.
Red hair is absolutely stunning for its beauty and uniqueness. It is akin to the fiery reds and oranges found on the mountain side leaves during a Vermont autumn. It’s something to be celebrated as all things rare and unique should be. Red hair exists in less than 2 percent of the human population and because of humanities natural inclination to fear the unknown those born with red hair have often been stigmatized in a variety of ways.
