New in my shop is a collection of eclectic bobby pin styles from a black and red goth to a pearl victorian. Using unusual bead combinations, each one has it’s own personality.
The right way to wear a bobby pin!
It’s common for people to open a bobby pin using their teeth on the longest part and stretching it apart before sliding it in your hair – am I right?Â Bobby pins should actually be worn with the wavy side down using the already curved foot to slide into the hair. This gives a tighter hold, prevents the pin from weakening and also a cleaner, flatter look against your head. Thin hair users can more easily weave the pin for an even tighter hold.
Beaded Bobby Pins
Victorian Gothic Hair Accessory
A unique and unusual hair piece for lovers of Victorian and Gothic designs. This hair clip has a strong main frame that I have wire wrapped additional pieces to as well as using jet crystals to attach. I have also hung copper chain and chosen a larger jet crystal and navy blue firepolished beads to decorate the sides and a large indigo blue with gold specks Lapis stone in the center with copper caps to finish it off. This hair jewelry is symmetrical.Â The stick is similarly wire wrapped and also has a piece of chain with matching beads.
Unique and Unusual Goth Hair Clip
A simple and very versatile silver or copper shawl pin that can be worn so many different ways.

The all metal design is in silver plate wire or pure copper wire, hammered on the ends to keep it’s shape and hand twisted wire added in the center. This scarf pin is shown with and without the stick, through a knit and can also be used around a fabric that you might not want to pierce. Tie it on your bag, use as a belt, wrap it in your hair, perfect for everyday use.
When using the stick, a medium or heavy knit is preferred.

I frequently get asked by customers with thin and slippery hair for suggestions for clipsÂ so have added a new category in my shop tailored to very small. These hair accessories are ideally suited for a small amount of hair or can be worn as a hair brooch snuggled up against a bun.
Tiny Hair Clip
The barrettes are made from a thinner gauge wire than I usually use which makes them very lightweight and they have the edges hammered to harden and keep their shape. Available in aged copper and silver plate.
Small Beaded Hair Brooch
Very Small Scroll Hair Clip
In my fantasy world today I wasÂ feeling a little goth and thinking about Â wedding season coming up and decided to put the 2 together for something a little different and unique. A black wavy onyx stone is featured with dripping chains and periwinkle chalcedony stones, a nice contrast against the aged copper. Loved making this style!
Copper Infinity Hair Pin
French twists are an easy and popular updo and I have designed these pins to be worn in an already secured style and popped right in the top. This infinity shape is made from copper wire, wire wrapped into a solid frame and three small copper beads have been added.
French Twist Hair Pin with Large Bead
Another bun pin, this time with hammered swirls, features a choice of 3 different colors of large beads, Frozen Caramel, Blue Star Nebula and Alpine Meadow.
I love finding unusual items to put on my hair accessories. This copper hair clip features a copper etched dragonfly on a vine of forest colored crystals. The pure copper wire is formed freehand and the curves are hammered smooth to keep their shape.
A unique hair piece fashioned freehand into a treble clef design with added scrolls, swirls and freshwater pearls.
A longer hair clip, it’s a perfect size for wearing with a French Twist and the stick is hammered into a baton shape and is long enough if you wanted to wear it through the bottom swirl.
All of my hair pieces come with copper care instructions and a non chemical cleaning sample.
This new copper wire scroll hair piece is unique and unusual, it’s all in the way you wear it! It can be placed directly over a bun and secured with a stick or for something completely different…
This is how the model is wearing it:
the model has her hair in an elastic pony, starting at the bottom it is wound around loosely 1 1/2 times ending at the top. When the scroll (fanned out) is placed over, her hair kind of squirts out between the scrolls and then the rest of the pony lies straight down between the circles and the last open tail.
Made freehand with pure, raw copper wire, this sturdy hair piece has been heavily hammered and antiqued.Â
All of my hair pieces include copper instructions and a non chemical cleaning sample.
