Lock of hair charm 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 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 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 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

We can add your loved one or pet’s birthstone as a natural birthstone (click here) 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. To add a birthstone, select the birthstone box above and let us know which one you’d like in the comments.

adding forget-me-nots to a lock of hair charm
You can add a forget-me-not flower here to your lock of hair charm, or if you prefer only forget-me-nots or other flowers order this charm and let us know in the comments if you’re sending petals or would like us to use only forget-me-nots.

Thought I would share something that is precious to me, my Mummy Pandora. Currently it has 5 charms on it and they all mean so much to me. My Memory Makers @memorymakersuk charm of Ava’s fingernail from when she was a month old (from Mothercare), my “It’s a Girl” charm from my work colleagues when I went on Mat leave, my @treeofopals handmade charm with a lock of Ava’s hair in, an Owl and her owlet from my Brother and his gf on my first birthday as a Mummy, and my Lace stopper to make sure they all stay on safely. On the Moments silver bracelet with Pandora Rose clasp. 💚 #themuddymummyblog #mummy #pandora #treeofopals #mothercare #makingmemories #memorymakers #motherhood #bracelet #special

    I love this idea and I was not disappointed with my bead, my daughter has red hair and Nikki was able to help me chose a colour bead to compliment her hair, lovely item made with care and skill and delivered in a handmade bag making it feel extra special.

    Thank you so much for my beautiful charm made with my son’s lock of hair and an emerald to represent his May birthday. It is so beautifully made, and so unique! I’m just waiting for my 6 month old daughter to grow enough hair so I can have one made for her with an aquamarine enclosed. I cannot recommend Nicola’s charms and jewelry enough, she puts so much time and effort into her work and this shines through!

    After losing my mum this year, it was my wish to have a jewellery piece made with her hair for my sister. I got it ordered for her birthday and even though I ordered it a bit late Tree of Opals still managed to have it completed and sent out to me on time. My sister LOVED it and im genuinely very grateful for them making jewellery like this. Thank you to Nikki and team from Edinburgh
