Description

Simple, elegant, and functional: One hand-forged bronze hair pin, approximately 3" long. The pin is wavy to help hold and tame even the most difficult hair, including very fine hair and twist-outs/braids/locks. When used in buns and up-dos most of the pin will be hidden in your hair, leaving only a subtle bronze shine at the bend.

These hair pins have been designed to work well with a wide range of hair types. The curves help secure both fine/slippery hair and curly/exuberant hair, while the stiffness of the bronze will hold up long, heavy hair without bending. In the 3 years I've been making them (and hundreds sold online and in-person) I've only met 2 people whose hair was too thin to work with these pins. The model in the 5th photo has heavy, slippery waist-length hair that was held fairly securely in a loose bun by 2 of these pins. If they were going jogging or something I'd add a third pin to be on the safe side.

If your hair (or the hair you're buying the pins for) is extremely thin, fine, thick, coarse, curly, or twisted/braided/locked, please let me know in the purchase notes so I can send pins fine-tuned for that hair type (smaller loops for finer hair, largest loops for braids, etc.)

I've always loved archaeology/anthropology and ancient things. These pins are a straightforward re-creation of an item that would have been in use a thousand years ago. Each pin is made from 7" of wire, individually bent and forged so no two will ever be exactly alike. The included pictures give a good idea of the range of forms these pins take.
The bronze I use for these pins is 92%copper, 8% tin and completely nickel-free, so won't trigger any nickel allergies.
The pin will come packaged neatly in a translucent glassine envelope that's also great for storage.

For sets of 3 pins, please see this listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/216293367

This item will ship via USPS first class mail in a padded envelope, unless other arrangements are made. Please convo me if you need larger quantities.

Thank you!
