The perfect summer accessory!
This one of a kind hair slide is made out of a base of stamped polymer clay that has been cured and hand painted with several shades of turquoise patina and then sealed with a matte suede finish. The nature of polymer clay is flexible yet strong. The aged mushroom cap is cured onto the slide. A Swarovski crystal sits atop the cap giving the hair slide sparkle as your head moves and catches the light.
The bamboo slide was hand sanded, painted, distressed and sealed. The end of the hair slide has copper wrapping, Czech glass beads and teeny little beads embedded in the tip. The tip is sealed with jewelry grade resin which adds water depth and shine to the end of the hair stick.
The hair slide is 2.5 inches wide and 3 inches long from end to end. It is 1.75″ tall when resting on a table. The space for hair between the bamboo slide and the hair piece is 3/4 of an inch. Perfect for a half bun or a thick amount of hair to be pulled back and secured. Especially sweet if hair is braided on the sides and then pulled back.
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.
