A lock of hair heart necklace with resin because photos don’t show every detail. We can embed your loved one’s hair, your little one’s first curl or a bit of your pet’s fur into a lock of hair heart necklace with crystal clear resin.
We will carefully cast only your loved one’s hair or fur into resin. You can see my YouTube tutorials here – I’ve been teaching keepsake and memorial jewellery making since 2015 and supply most of the other keepsake jewellers around the world from my other small business Keepsaker Supplies!
lock of hair colours
You can view our colour option galleries here (click here) for lots of examples of pieces using that colour mix. Each piece will look unique because of the natural colours of the hair or fur and we can’t predict the results. We will use our best efforts with white hair, which is clear in resin, to give the hair some depth and bounce some light off the strands. If you’d like us to use grey, white, salt and pepper or very light blonde hair then it may or may not show up in the resin, have a look at this gallery
You can add a forget-me-not flower here to your lock of hair heart necklace, or request precious metal leaf. Just let us know what you’d like in the comments.
lock of hair or fur sending kits
We’ll send you a kit a week or so after you order and here’s some advice on sending it in, please read it. It’s really important you keep some hair back just in case. You can send us a photo on our Facebook page of the amount you have, so we can tell you how much of it we need.
Lock of Hair Heart Necklace Setting
Smooth heart settings in 10mm, 12mm or 16mm or a 16mm with a 10mm heart inside, with a direct pour technique.
The necklace includes a 20″/50cm lightweight solid sterling silver chain. Due to the weight of the pendant, we highly recommend you choose a Necklace Chain Upgrades listing (click here). We recommend a bail upgrade too for something more personal. Feel free to get in touch with us first for a discount for a chain upgrade.
engraving your lock of hair heart necklace
Engraving is done in Arial font as standard, but please let us know if you’d prefer another font such as Times New Roman, Vivaldi, Amazone BT, or Silver South Serif & Script in the comments of the product before adding it to the basket. Click on each font to see it “in action” with your chosen words. We can work with any font, please get in touch to discuss alternatives. We recommend Arial, Times New Roman or Silver South Serif for long messages, and handwriting fonts like Vivaldi, Amazone BT or Silver South Script are great for short messages and on larger pieces. Copy and paste these emojis for your cremation jewelry, sometimes the ones on a phone or tablet aren’t accepted when you try to add to basket!
❤ ☀ ☾ ★ ☽ ∞ ♫ 💧 🐾 👣
We have blogs with memorial quotes here or baby quotes here, and for image engraving see this page – you can add handwriting, fingerprints, footprints, paw prints and handprints or a special pattern. Please note, the necklace price doesn’t include engraving this must be added to the basket in addition to the necklace.
