Using techniques from the 1700 and 1800's, a lock of hair is crafted into the design of the client's choice.

The artwork is placed on a piece of mother of pearl.  This hair art is crafted in the USA using natural products.  Each piece is packaged in a "treasure" box for safekeeping when not being worn.  These pieces properly cared for should last for generations.  This jewelry is made using the cutwork or palette work techniques and results in a pendant of "wearable art".  Very little hair is needed, a small lock is sufficient to make most any of the designs shown.  The designs depicted on the website are representations of what can be created.  All designs are custom created to your specifications. 

** Not all hair is compatible with every design, please e-mail with any questions.
