When I think of summer, it's waterskiing at the lake - hot sunny days brilliant with bright blue sky and shimmering water. That's what inspired me to hang the hammered disks from this turquoise pin.

I made this hair stick from composite turquoise, nickel silver, and lustrous desert ironwood, with three hand-cut and hammered disks chained to the hand-shaped pin and cap.

The turquoise and nickel-silver end cap is hand-shaped and inlaid. It's pinned into the wood with an 1/8" nickel silver pin soldered to the cap. I added slender bands of nickel silver and black vulcanized fiber to set off the wood and stone. The chains and disks dangle from a ring that moves freely around the pin providing lots of movement so the disks really catch the eye.

Desert ironwood is one of the rarest and most beautiful hardwoods in North America. It's similar to cats-eye stone in its translucency and has a lovely, intricate grain. The natural oils in the wood give it that great luster, and the tight grain makes it easy to polish to such a high shine.

The hair stick is approximately 6 1/4" (16cm) long and 1/4" (.63 cm) square at the large end. It ships cushioned by soft white batting in a buff-colored gift box, tied with dark red raffia ribbon like you see in the last photo.

Like everything in my shop, this listing is handmade and unique - you get the exact item you see in the photographs.
