A Christmas lock of hair memorial ornament that will remind you of your loved ones over Christmas and the holiday season. Photos don’t show every detail so we can cast your loved ones’ hair, your little one’s first curl or a little of your pets’ fur into crystal clear resin. Using locks of human hair in jewellery has a long and rich tradition in many cultures which you can read more about in this Wiki article. Please note that we won’t be sending out “proof pictures” as we sometimes do with jewellery orders, because we will be making the ornaments with epoxy resin which takes several days to cure.
lock of hair colours
You can view our colour option galleries here (click) 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 place the hair in the lock of hair memorial ornament at our discretion to the best of our abilities and the result depends on the texture of the hair. 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
