A very interesting and informative website about all things Colonial:

This link leads to a website showcasing an exceptional collection of antique sentimental jewelry.  Unbelievably wonderful things.  Worth a look!

The following link is a wonderful demonstration of how to take a profile with a physiognotrace.  Mark Osterman is process historian for the George Eastman House he teaches a number of workshops through the museum.  This is really a great video demo--check it out!

Tracing the Shadow:  Making a Silhouette using a Physiognotrace

People often ask for referrals to contemporary silhouette artists.  Cindi Harwood Rose cut a silhouette of my son 25 years ago and does beautiful work.  Her website may be found at the link below:

Silhouettes by Cindi

You can watch Cindi cutting a silhouette at

YouTube: Cindi Rose

 

Above is Cindi Rose, on the right, with her daughter, Erica, and Dr. Phil.  Cindi is wearing a silhouette pendant that she bought from me....which she wore on the Dr. Phil Show.  Next is the silhouette that Cindi cut of Dr. Phil.  How cool is that?!
