  • Handmade item
  • Materials: woven hair mourning brooch, zebra jasper beads

This stunning, woven hair filled Victorian mourning brooch, creates a head-turning necklace. Even more unusual about this memento mori piece of remembrance jewelry from the 1800's is that the silken knot of hair seems to be a tribute to two people, as the colors involved are so different.
These very personal mementos commemorating a loved one's passing were treasured possessions, a way to remain close, in a day when the art photography was so young and inaccessible to many.

The beads are smooth, polished black zebra jasper. They are rich and subtly colored in crisp variegations.

I can add a lengthener to this if you would like. It is currently just under 18" long.
I work with vintage and antique parts. Some may show some signs of wear or age. Please look at the pictures carefully, and contact me before purchasing if you have any questions. I can send additional pictures if you prefer. I like to think that older items possess a character that newer items have not yet earned.

This was truly a work of art, a special statement piece, and exactly what I had hoped it would be. From the packaging--each individual piece carefully wrapped in the box--to the quality of the craftmanship was just a wow moment. I am so happy I clicked "add to cart" as I turned away a few times debating the purchase, but it kept calling my name. I cannot wait to buy the next piece! Thank you Laura for your creativity you share with us who appreciate the "one of a kind," artistic jewelry pieces.

Thank you, Laura. I am so thrilled with this Meerchaum necklace! The color and arrangement of the beads compliment it beautifully. You have a very good eye for detail. I can only imagine what a wonderful time you have collecting such amazing pieces and working with them! I purchased this piece in honor of my own child who is in heaven. The detail of Our Lady with her Child Jesus is so carefully and perfectly carved. I will treasure it always, as its beauty brings me peace. I cannot thank you enough! Best wishes, Robyn
