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 Lock of Hair Charm encased in 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. 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.

Sending Elements
We’ll send you a kit a week or so after you order to post in your lock of hair or fur and here’s some advice on sending it in. It’s really important you keep some back just in case please and people often send us a photo so we can tell you how much we need.

Colours and Sparkles
We can add an infinite choice of colours and shimmers to your charms, just click the link for examples of pieces with colour, shimmer, glitter, opalescent flakes and pearlescent powders. You’ll see examples of pieces we’ve made for clients in the past and we’re always happy to help with creative suggestions. These pieces look best with a little colour/shimmer Click on that link and you’ll find lots of examples of pieces we’ve made for clients in the past and we’re always happy to help with creative suggestions. You can choose clear resin but it acts as a magnifier of microbubbles which often get trapped in the strands.

Resin Precious Stones
We can add your loved one or pet’s birthstone as a rough precious stone, just choose it from the drop down menu. Our rough precious stone page gives examples of pieces we have made for clients in the past and in that page you’ll find links to each individual birthstone’s gallery.

    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!
