Locks of Hair made into jewellery

Locks of Hair Memorabilia

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


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 option choices on the item you are ordering and add it to your basket.

Choose your postage option.

I will post out an element kit for you to wrap the hair and post back to me. I will email to confirm once it’s been returned, then email again when your jewellery is made to let you know it will arrive via Royal Mail Special Delivery the following day by 1pm.

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,
Jen x

    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

        Hi I’m looking for a silver ring, plain band with heart on it, with lock of hair from my nan in it. Her hair is silver/white but I dont want a coloured background. I would be happy with a neutral colour although I appreciate the hair might not show up? I’m not overly fussed if I can see the hair 100%, but would be nice if I can see a glimpse of hair? It’s so difficult to imagine, and I just want it to look right. Can you help? Thanks so much Sam

          Hi Samantha, thanks for commenting. Silver white hair will always have a more subtle finish than a darker hair but, unlike many makers, I have developed a technique that will help prevent complete translucency. Happy to discuss what can be designed for you to keep a lock of your Nan’s hair in jewellery for you. I’ll drop you an email and we can have a chat. Best wishes, Jen x

    Can you make me a silver wedding ring with my mums hair incorporated within. And can you give me some idea of the price

    • March 9, 2020 at 2:22 pm

      Hi Michelle, that is not a style I currently create, sorry. A wedding ring is designed to be worn continuously, whereas, a ring encapsulating hair in resin needs a gentler lifestyle! Best wishes, Jen x

    Hello I have my sons baby curl from 42 years ago, I would like it to be set in a clear resin ornament with his name and age of the curl on it. Can you do this please. Thanks Gayna
