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?
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?
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.

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.
“I wanted something personal of my mum I could wear and it holds a very precious memory. It brings me comfort knowing I have a little piece of mum with me always”
“I wear mine every day without fail, and I can’t imagine not wearing it now. It keeps me sane a lot of days and it helps more than I thought a little locket ever could ❤”
