These pendants are sterling silver and were made expressly for this hair art. The hair art is placed on mother-of- pearl. They measure about 1-1/4" in diameter
These pendants are available in either the sterling silver finish or the gold vermeil finish. The color tone of the hair used will sometimes determine which finish flatters the hair the most.
These pendants are versatile as they have a pin on the back and can be worn as either a pendant or a brooch. They can be engraved
for an additional fee.
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 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.
These pendants do not have a lot of depth to them, so the hair art can not have a lot of layers to it.
There are many antique lockets and brooches that are beautiful and client's will send me jewelry they have purchased just so they can add the hair art inside.
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 and many very unique pieces have been made using antique or custom created jewelry pieces.
Client's have lockets with sentimental meaning and I can create artwork with meaning to place inside.
You can place a picture or wording on the back.
There is actually enough room to place another piece of hair art too.
These pendants are sterling silver and have glass on both sides. They have more depth than the pendants seen above. The size is approximately 7/8" in diameter. The hair art is placed on mother of pearl.
The hair art can have layers inside this pendant. A design such as the rose fits nicely with it layers.
Please e-mail me with any questions about ordering and hair amounts.
I am happy to answer any and all questions you might have.
All pieces are custom made using the 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 any length hair even extremely tiny pieces.
I ALWAYS return any hair not used in the construction of the piece.
Some hair may not be suitable for some designs. Very curly hair is
difficult to use 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 two designs. 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. If you send me a picture I can tell you before ordering if you have
enough hair or if it will work in the design you would like best.
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. Upon receiving final 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 twenty years.
I accept payment using PayPal.
If you prefer I will also accept payment by check or money order.
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 is different.
Once the design is chosen and the style of locket is picked out, you should e-mail me for a firm quote. The designs shown are samples of what can be created. You are only limited by your imagination.
I do my best to create any design that might have meaning to the family or client. The Bremen Town Musicians has special significance as did the squirrel, the castle design and many many others. If you contact me I will let you know if the design you desire is possible with the amount of hair available.
All designs are chosen by the client and created to their specifications. Any hair not used in the creation of the art work will be returned to the client
