It takes much less hair than most people think to create a piece of hair art jewelry. It depends on the design chosen what length is needed, but most designs do not need hair any longer than 2″ and some designs can be created with hair 1/2″ or even less in length!
All hair art inside jewelry is placed on a background of mother of pearl. I can tint the mother of pearl to most any color you may desire, but most pieces look best on the natural color tone.
There are several pendant styles to choose from or you can send me your own setting if it will work with the design you have chosen. (Many clients have antique pieces and choose to have them filled with their own designs.)
The most important thing to know about sending me your own setting for the hair art is that it be covered in glass. There must also be enough depth that the backing and hair art fit inside without the glass pushing down on it.
I always return any hair that is not used for the creation of your piece as I know how precious it is to you.

Setting that fits inside a larger piece.
I have also created larger pieces that fit inside picture frames. Larger for hanging on a wall, and smaller such as for sitting on a desk or dresser.
I can work with one person’s hair or I can create a “family” piece with many persons hair. And, anything in between. These are ALL custom made and to YOUR vision of how you want it to look. I do my best to create it exactly as you wish, as much as possible and it is not completed until you have approved the design.
Most pieces can be created in a week to ten days, though they are not finished until you have approved the hair art.
