This shawl pin or hair slide (barrette) was made from a branch of an Ash tree which had to be coppiced (meaning the tree wasn't killed or seriously damaged by the taking of this wood). The pin and the ring are cut from the same branch.
I have left the bark around the outside of the ring and on the end of the pin. Since this wood has seasoned for several years, the bark should be very firmly attached and should not come off.
The ring is oval - about 6.5cm (2 and a half inches) across the short side and just slightly longer across the long side. The pin is 11.5cm (4 and a half inches) long and has bark attached to one side, although you can reverse it and use it without the bark showing, if you like.
*Please note - following feedback from the "shawl experts" on ravelry.com, the pin has been shortened from the original listing.

The lego man is included for scale, but our little boy would never forgive us if we sold it. :)

The wood is sanded smooth, but not TOO smooth, so it doesn't slip out too easily. The wood was then given a couple of coats of oil to seal it, then waxed. It has also been tested on one of Bryony's fine shawls, and yet again I felt a bit of a wally walking around wearing a shawl - it performed very well... :)
It was also tested in Lesley's hair, because I haven't got any :)

*This item has bark attached - please do not buy if your country does not allow the import of such items
Thanks for looking!
