Lock of Hair or Fur Heart Pendant


Hand cast heart shaped resin cabachon stone. (Other shapes are also available oval, teardrop, circular etc)
A lock of your loved ones hair/fur will be encaspsulated within the stone, and layered with colours of your choice. 

Please detail below how you would like the colours arranged in your piece, so if you would like a full sparkle background or a cascade of sparkle we will need to know. If you are unsure on anything please get in touch, we will happliy make up free colour buttons so you know you are making the right desicion.

Please note if the hair or fur you are sending is very light and fine you may wish to consider the lighter colour options for maximum visibility. 
Dried flowers or charms can be added to completely personalise this pendant. If you have something specific you wish to be included please write us a message when you place your order or send us an email and we will be happy to discuss this with you.

  • Purchase Information

    Once you have completed your purchase we will send an inclusion pack with a container and self-addressed envelope for you to return to the studio.

    If the hair or fur you are sending is particularly flyaway you can bind it together with a little hair product such as wax/spray/gel which will help hold it together.

  • How much hair/fur do you need?

    We only need a small lock, between 1-2 toothpicks wide. If the hair is very short we can still work with it but will need enough to fill a teaspoon.

  • Colour choices

    How visible the hair/fur is in your finished piece is dependant on a few things. The darker and thicker or coarser the hair the more obvious it will be, but that doesn't mean that fine or light coloured hair won't be visible, but it is recommended that you choose lighter colours to show this to it's full advantage. 

  • Do the Pendants come with a chain?

    Yes, all pendants come on an sterling silver18 inch snake chain. Alternative lengths and types are available to purchase

  • Is it Silver?

    Yes, all of our settings and findings are 925 Sterling Silver and the majority are hallmarked.

  • Can I drop my inclusions off with you in person?

    Yes, you are more than welcome to drop your jewellery inclusions off at the studio in Carlisle, or bring them to one of of pop-up shops we hold regularly. Just leave us a note after you make your purchase.

  • Is this suitable for a man?

    Yes, if you are purchasing this and require the pendant mounted on a ball chain or leather cord please let us know.

    Colour options are a pesonal preference but we have a number of masculine colours to choose from. 

  • Will I be able to see the hair/fur?

    We work hard to make sure your jewellery is exactly as you envision. We can only work with the inclusion though, some hair/fur low in melanin will go translucent once immersed in the resin, particulary white, grey or bleached hair or fur. We will try our best to make these as visible as possible but sometimes due to the makeup of the hair it will disappear.

    Many clients are happy just knowing that the lock is in their jewellery, but if you are particulary keen that the lock is as highly visible as possible we do offer a free colour check service. You can post in a small amount of the lock and tell us which colours you would like to see it made with before deciding. We will make up a small colour button free of charge and send you images of the results, These buttons are then returned with your finished piece. Please get in touch if this is something you require.

  • I'm unsure on which colours I can have.

    You can have your piece in any colour or combination of colours you would like. We have three main options - opaque, sparkle and the irridescent leaf, all can be used individually or combined. 

    If you are unsure which options to choose, please get in touch and we will make up a free colour button for you. This is a small dot of resin with your chosen colours/sparkle/leaf. Just pop a message through to arrange this.

    If you have a specific colour in mind which you can't see as an option, please get in touch as we can often oblige. We love making custom pieces!!

  • Can this setting be used for a different inclusion

    Yes, we have worked with a number of inclusions that mean something special to our clients. 

    If you have ashes, breast milk, umbilical cord, teeth, dried flowers, fabric, soil/sand, pregnancy strips or anything else you wold like us to use to make a truly unique and special piece of jewellery, please just let us know.

    Most of our settings are interchangeable and so can be cast with differnt inclusions, and combinations of inclusions. We will make this piece as special as you want it to be. 

  • Do you engrave pieces?

    We can certainly organise certain pieces to be engraved with a special message or name if you require this service. There will be an additional charge of £25 for this, please get in touch as this will need to be added on to yor purchase seperately.
