Hi, Jewelry made of hair? Sounds interesting, I've never
heard of such a thing. What is it and where does it come from?
Hair jewelry, also known as mourning or memorial jewelry,
commemorates the memory of a deceased loved one, and very
popular during Victorian times. The hair is worked into various
designs, including “open weave”, “prince of wales” etc., and
enclosed in lockets and brooches or made into rings, watch fobs,
Hairwork or plating is still being done today, particularly in
some of the Scandinavian countries. I must have missed the
original post to this, but I collect these old items, so if
anyone has these to sell, please write to me privately.
