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.
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.

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. Some bracelets are a little smaller than our cores but you can buy silver stoppers here.
We also sell solid silver torque bangles, where the ball unscrews and we offer handmade silver bracelets including our popular bubble wire bracelet.
