Includes the Artwork

These pendants are sterling silver and have bubble glass on both sides.  The hair art can be seen from both sides if  the hair art is not placed on a backing. It does not show up in the picture on the left, but this hair art design has "jewels" on both sides and can be seen from either side as the pieces shown do not have a backing. These pendants can be ordered in three shapes, the two ovals and a heart shape.   The art placed inside of these pendants need to be shallow as there is little depth inside.  They are about 1" in size.

The image of the heart to the left has the hair art placed on a mother of pearl backing, so the hair art can only be seen from one side.  A picture or wording can be placed on the reverse when the pendants are constructed in this manner.

               $250.     

        



These pendants have domed glass on both sides. The hair art is placed on a mother of pearl background.   The reverse side can have either a picture or wording placed inside. The designs do not need to be flat inside these pendants as there is some depth especially at the center. These pendants come in a variety of sizes, shown is the 1-3/8" (pendant) and the smaller 3/4" size (earrings) diameters.  

The cost varies with the size of the pendant and whether ordered in gold-filled or sterling silver. These pieces are also available in 14k gold as a special order.

14k Gold Pricing
 at Time of Ordering
 

These pendants are sterling silver and have glass on both sides. They have more depth than the pendants seen above.  The size is approximately 1-1/4" in diameter.  In these pendants the hair art is placed on mother of pearl and a picture or wording can be placed on the reverse.  There is actually enough depth for another hair art design to be placed on the back if desired.

  
$325.  


These pendants are solid sterling and have both a bail and a clasp for versatility in wearing as either a pendant or a brooch.  They are very substantial and have room for engraving on the reverse.  There is enough depth for layered designs and the hair art is placed on mother of pearl.  These pendants were created specifically for my hair art and they are available in either the natural sterling or an optional 14k triple gold plating (shown in the picture).

 
$350.  





The picture frames can be ordered in a very large variety of sizes and finishes.  No matter which size or frame finish is chosen, they are ordered with curved glass and there is depth inside for the hair art.  The hair art is placed on mother of pearl in the smaller size frames, and a glass background in the larger sizes.  


If the art is created using the hair flower wreath technique, then the art is placed on either a velvet or satin backing.  

The final cost is determined  by the size of the frame and resulting artwork.

Starting at $400.  
Hair art can be placed inside a pendant that the client sends me.  I place the hair art on mother of pearl for the backing.   Varies
with size and complexity

YOU pick the design to be placed inside.  The above pictures represent past creations to show what hair art looks like inside the pendant.
You may have any design you choose.  If you have something that is meaningful to you or the person you are creating it for, I can most likely create it for you, even though you might not think of it as being something you would have out of hair.  That is how the turtle was created and the squirrel, and also the bear for example.   These pieces are custom made to the client's specifications and desires.

If I am provided a picture or sketch of what the client would like, as you have seen, it can most likely be created out of hair.   

Any hair not used in the creation of the piece is always returned to the client

All pieces are custom made using hair the client provides to me.  A lock of hair such as is saved from a first haircut is usually sufficient to create most designs.  

The sepia technique uses hair of any length, even extremely tiny pieces.

The sample you see on the right is approximately 2" long.

In general it takes about ten days from the time I receive the hair to create and finish a piece. There are exceptions, but that is an average.  I will let you know the time frame at the time you order if it would be different.

Some hair may not be suitable for some designs.  Very curly hair is difficult to create the "Prince of Wales" design for example, or the basket weave design also, as the hair needs to lay quite straight to create these.   If the hair is too short or too curly, or not enough of it for the first choice of design, it can be made into another design of your choice. My ordering procedure has been to ask for 1/2 of the total cost as a down payment at the time the hair is sent.  When I have completed the design I scan it, send the picture to the client for approval or changes, and upon receiving their approval I complete the piece and get it ready for shipping.  After receiving the other half of the payment cost,  I send the completed piece using Priority Mail so it can be insured and tracked.  This procedure has worked flawlessly for approximately 20 years.  

I accept payment by check or money order.  If you prefer to use a credit card that can be done through Paypal.
Please do not send an order without contacting me first.
