Hand-Turned & Carved Hardwood
Single Hair Pin
Materials: "Mardi Gras" Dyed Hardwood

"Mardi Gras" Dyed Hardwood is made of lovely layers of purple, yellow, turquoise, red, and green, which are infinitely reminiscent of New Orleans' famous party time, beads being flung through the air, the festival atmosphere, and green and purple cakes being handed out everywhere!

I hand-turned this hair pin from dyed and laminated hardwood that's been impregnated with resin and densified, thus made extremely strong and durable, and also resistant to temperature variations and moisture. (Yes, that means you can swim/shower with this in your hair!) Smooth as glass!

Total length is about 5 5/8 inches; length below ornamentation: about 4.25 inches. Widest top diameter: 14 mm. Heirloom quality.

Please see my web site (http://www.KatherineKowalski.com) and blog for more about my work and inspiration.


All of my items are tested for durability and strength. They're not simply ornamental -- they are fully functional tools and ornaments created with the finest materials and techniques in order for you to have a tool that is both beautiful and works comfortably and efficiently at the same time... just as it should.

I've been a fiber artist for over twenty-five years, and now use my experience to design one-of-a-kind items: from the tools of the trade (crochet hooks, knitting needles, spinning tools, etc.) to items of personal adornment such as hairpins, jewelry, and much more!

There is a wonderful joy to owning and using finely crafted wooden items: they're smooth, warm, and have the potential to become cherished heirlooms. My work is 100% guaranteed. Please see my web site (http://www.KatherineKowalski.com) for a Care & Use Guide as well as other information.

Each item is a unique work of art handcrafted by Katherine Kowalski, a professional woodturner and Master Fiber Artist. All designs and graphics, etc. are copyright © Katherine Kowalski. All rights reserved.
