Save your hair

Would you believe this bracelet is made of hair?

It's a Victorian snake coil bracelet with 14 karat yellow gold and garnets and a woven hair band, approximately 14" total length by 1/2" wide, snake head 2" long. For sale here.

 Hair jewelry was the height of the romanticism and sentiment that characterized the Victorian era.

 Watch chains and bracelets often show the most ingenious hair weaving techniques with more than one color of hair often used, as perhaps a chain given by three daughters to their father.
