Making Jewellery with Locks of Hair

Locks of Hair Memorabilia

Have you kept that first lock of hair from your baby?

Or

Are you holding onto a treasured lock from a loved one that you’ve lost?

Keeping a lock of a person’s hair is not a new idea, it began back with the Victorians. Hair was seen as a precious memento, and it still is…

Why is this a problem?
Well, let’s be honest – how many of us just have it tucked away in a ‘safe’ place? hidden away and not seen and enjoyed…
Instead of leaving it to lie in a dusty old drawer, why not create something beautiful to last a lifetime?
  • What do I need to be able to do this?
    You just need a little lock of hair (or pet fur)
  • How much will it cost?
    From £45+
  • Are there time limitations for this to be feasible?
    No, so long as you have a lock of hair there is no time limit on being able to create jewellery.
  • Do I need to be able to visit your studio in person?
    No. This can all be done online and through postage. Distance is no problem – keep reading to find out how you can order yours.
  • Can this also be offered for pets?
    Yes. A lock of pet fur can be a lovely way to remember a treasured and loved pet.

Keeping a lock of hair in a locket or charm is a subtle way to hold onto a memory – take a look…

How do I order?

Ordering ONLINE

If you order online, follow the various options on the item you are ordering and add it to your basket.

For postage options choose EITHER –

a. All inclusive – I will send you out a prepaid, ready to return box for you to send me the lock of hair.

b. Arrange delivery of the hair yourself and opt for the £7.95 Special Delivery option to return your finished jewellery back to you when completed.

How do I order?

Ordering IN PERSON

If you’d like to order in person, make a booking to come to my studio HERE.

When you come to your appointment bring with you the lock of hair. It’s best to wrap it in a piece of tissue and keep it in a sealed envelope.

If you have an idea or a request that isn’t shown, please just ask…it may be possible to create something unique, exactly what you are looking for.
If you’d like advice on any aspect of creating jewellery with locks of hair…please ask.
Best Wishes,

    Can you make a heart pendant with white hair? I read that this is not possible.

      Hi Helen, thanks for commenting. The problem sometimes with very light hair is the translucency when encapsulated. This is why some people prefer not to make jewellery with white hair. There are techniques and methods to help eliminate this and let you create pieces with white hair. I’d be happy to have a chat with you about what would be best, and what can and cannot be done. Welcome to email me at [email protected] Best wishes, Jen x
