Lock of Hair Bead
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 a Lock of Hair bead with 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.
lock of hair bead colour options
You can pick one of our eight colour mixes, or choose “classic ash” for a piece set in clear resin with a white background. Click on this colour options page to see more info about each variation, including how we place each of the colours and shimmers. 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.
We can add your loved one or pet’s birthstone as a natural birthstone to your lock of hair bead, just choose it from the menu. The pages there give examples of pieces we have made for clients in the past. Each birthstone will look different depending on your colour choice and the natural colours of the hair.
You can add a lock of hair as an additional element to any of our other pieces, for example if you’d like a cremation ash and hair charm then order an ash charm and add hair as an additional element.
