Ok, so, as promised, here is the first post according to my new post schedule! Starting things off, is an announcement for my newest jewelry line: hair jewelry!

Hair Jewelry – ‘Aoifa’ design

Hair Jewelry - Aoifa design

This is the first of many more pieces of hair jewelry to come. It’s a sterling silver and Freshwater Pearl Mobius flower chainmaille and metalsmithing hair fork. Alternatively, if you don’t where hair jewelry, hair forks also work great as shawl/scarf pins. The total length of this hair fork is nearly 3 inches long. For anyone interested, it is available on my website.

I’m extremely happy with how this piece turned out. It’s simple, yet very elegant and not as easy to make as it looks! Hair jewelry is actually pretty tricky to make, and this piece was no exception. When it come to making hair forks, the trickiest part of this kind of hair jewelry is the shaft. Besides making sure you have a good wire gauge/temper, it is very easy to over work the zig-zag kink pattern that helps to keep the hair jewelry in your hair.

No idea when they will be finished, by more designs and styles are on their way! From hair forks, to hair combs, to hair sticks!
