This post focuses on pallet hair work.
Hair was worked on something like an artists pallet and was generally flat to be placed in jewelry settings.
The first few pictures are mourning pieces combining hand-painting and hair work to memorialize a loved one.
The next two pieces are most likely love tokens also done as pallet work.
Pallet work was used in brooches, rings, and pendants.
The pieces featured in this post are property of the Charleston Museum.
