hand carved hardwood hair sticks

45.00

I started carving hair sticks because I couldn't find ones I loved. I have long hair and I wear it up with one or two of these sticks every day. I see them as small pieces of sculpture, perfect tools that keep my hair up and out of my way. What makes mine work is that they are hand carved, not perfectly cut with power tools. The knife I use leaves enough subtle texture to help the stick stay in place. I sand them buttery smooth so that they don't snag your hair, and at least in my hair they stay put. I use whatever wood is at hand from pale birds eye maple to dark African black wood. I will post them here as I make them. The silver one was covered in pure silver leaf, a delicate surface that wears away revealing a red undercoat beneath. All are between 5-7" in length. If you would like a longer length, let me know.
