**Not sure if these are " jewels woven" into her hair as the museum description says. I have a feeling these are beaded dangles off of a headdress worn on the back of her head. If you zoom the image on the MHM site, the dangles look like they are behind her hair, not woven in her hair. Ladies magazines of the time have illustrations of similar headdresses with beaded dangles. Unidentified woman, with jewelry woven into hair.Thomas M. Easterly. Missouri History Museum.
