Today we will focus on table hair work.
Table work creates the three dimensional pieces often seen in jewelry.
All of the hair work featured in this post are love tokens.
The table below is a new weaving table made and used by a friend of ours, Thomas Tear.
This collection of hair jewelry has examples that Thomas has created along with some antique pieces.
Can you tell which is old and which is new?
An antique weaving table is part of the Charleston Museum collection.
A watch fob made of hair with gold findings and locket.
Hair bracelet with gold findings and crystal center.
Cross with gold tips and seed pearl.
Hair bracelets showing different weaving designs.

The hair weaving patterns were found in books of the era while the gold findings could be purchased from catalogs.
I hope you have enjoyed this series about hair work from the Victorian era!
