Frequently Asked Questions


Answers
  How Much Hair is Needed? Laid flat it needs to cover an area of about 2 square inches for most designs.   I always return any hair not used in the creation of these pieces
  How Long Does it Take? It takes approximately two weeks to complete a piece 
 
  How Do I Care For My Jewelry?
Hair Art is delicate.  It is protected under glass, but it cannot be gotten wet. A dry polishing cloth is best used to clean the glass.  Hair Art will last indefinitely if properly taken care of.

   Are there Special Instructions
               for Sending Hair ?
Place hair in a padded envelope for safe delivery, and always let me know to expect your package.  
   What Payments Do You Accept ? I accept most forms of payment.  Paypal can be used for payment with a Credit Card.  


All pieces are custom made using hair the client provides to me.  A lock of hair such as saved from a first haircut is usually sufficient to create most designs.

The sepia technique uses hair of any length, even extremely tiny pieces.

The sample you see on the right is approximately 2" long.
 
hair amount

It takes much less hair than most people think to create these pieces. The picture above represents approximately the amount needed to create an average piece of hair art.  For a one inch pendant design, if you spread the hair flat and it covers a one inch area at least twice, it is the minimum amount for most designs.


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.

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.

Please let me know before sending the hair so I know it will be arriving.  Much of the hair sent to me is not replaceable, so it is important to know it is arriving, and I will email you and let you know I received it.
