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 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.
You can’t add ash to a lock of hair piece, but 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 a cremation ash charm and add hair as an additional element.

All European charms come with solid silver Tree of Opals branded cores that fit in perfectly with other beads like Pandora and Trollbeads. Our charm insert hole size is around 4.5mm and should fit all Pandora, Biagi or Chamilia bracelets etc. For an interesting history on the European charm beads have a look at this Wikipedia page.
Our charm cores are too small to engrave but you can add a laser engraved washer here.
This listing is just for the charm bead itself and you can add bracelets and charm accessories here.

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
