VICTORIAN ROMANCE SPEAKER: Andrea Tice, who helped to curate the Victorian Jewelry exhibit, is our expert on the romantic use of various media for remembrances in Victorian times. Women often used portions of their long hair to create amazing jewelry and art pieces- these were meant to convey their deep bond with the men who were part of their lives- men who went off to war, who travelled and were not home, and who were special members of the British society.
