  • 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.
