A Woman's Hair is Her Crowning Glory, And it Makes Good Bling Too!

This lovely watch fob chain is made of my grandmother's hair and was given to my grandfather during their first year of marriage. I can't imagine a more personal style of jewelry than one made from the locks of a loved one. What ever happened to the lost art of human hair jewelry?

  1. A very unusual piece! The cutting of the hair was traditional. Was giving a gift made from it a tradition too?

  2. I've not heard of gifting one's hair being a tradition in Poland. Actually, I've not heard of hair jewelry in connection with Poland at all. I'm guessing it was an American thing.

    Good question! Thanks for asking, Apple.
