These hair ornaments are an unusual gift, perfect for women who use pencils to twist up their hair- offer them this lovely improvement over the shabby writing utensil....

This quill is in purple and blue metallic tones with some black and gold accents. The focal beads are a beautiful purple crystal that sparkle beautifully, I just can't show the color and sparkle in my photos! Most of the beads have an "oil slick" finish, and are cut seed beads that catch a little more light than round beads. Dark purple crystal beads also flank the focal beads, along with metallic coated purplish ovals.

This quill is a bit higher in price due to the crystal I used in it.
This quill is almost 7 inches long in total, with the usable part about 4 1/2 - 5 inches. I love this quill, it turned out beautifully- but it won't show up well in dark hair, so be warned!!!!! It will look classy, but subdued, and the purple in the crystal will not be readily visible.


About quills in general:
Quills are natural items and vary in coloration and width- They are a bit more flexible than wood so they don't snap unexpectedly, you can tell when you are putting too much pressure. Layered hair will be a bit difficult to get hair in a stick without ends sticking out- but many like it that way. Putting up just the top half of your hair makes this a bit easier. I don't recommend using them in wet hair, it may make the quill weak temporarily, so don't let it get crushed, and let it dry out before wearing if it does get very wet.
The end comes off of the point, you put your hair up with the stick and then reattach the beads. The last photo is of this quill being worn, and you can check my photos in my other listings, and my sold quill listings for other examples.

You can use it to decorate an existing hairstyle like an upside down ponytail, or a french braid. Rolling a braided ponytail into a bun and decorate with the quill makes an easy elegant hairdo...
There are dozens of ideas on youtube for using hair sticks- just put in "how to wear hair sticks" for new ideas! This type of hair ornament must be worn straight across or pointing up, but that is the only difference between this and undecorated sticks. Please send me a convo if you have any questions!
Thanks for looking.
