One of a kind and unusual.
This hair slide was designed from polymer clay and then molded into organic, elegant forms. Delicate shifting colors were applied by hand to the surface and then cured and sealed. The underside has a pattern stamped into the clay and then highlighted in metallic blues and sealed. Brass wire antennae weave their way from the top of the butterfly head to the bottom of the wings. A large Swarovski color changing crystal is in the belly area and a smaller matching one rests just above it. The wooden hair stick is made of hand sanded bamboo that is carefully painted, weathered and sealed. The end of the hair stick is swirled in copper with Czech beads, metallic mini blue beads and lavender crystalized sand.
The entire hair slide measures 3 inches long by 2.5″ wide and 1.5″ tall when resting on a desk. There is 1/2″ of space between the hair stick and the slide for holding back braids, buns or a hunk of hair.
The slide deserves to be treated like any other fine piece of special jewelry. Wear it for a day out on the town or out to dinner. Not recommended for the beach or to be worn with wet hair. The product has been sealed but with repeated exposure to moisture it is possible to wear away the finish a bit. Maybe that wouldn’t actually matter as it has a time worn nature to it to begin with.
