Bare Bodkins Round Topped Brass Hair Bodkins 4 Inch Amish Style Hair Pins

This listing is for one set of four long 4 Inch Round Topped Brass Amish Style Hair Pins, I also have squared topped Brass Bodkins.

Bodkins were a kind of pin used by women to fasten the hair back in medieval times. They were often ornamental. Since these hair bodkins are with out ornamentation, I decided to call them Bare Bodkins. Both for my love of Shakespeare and the fact that I love the other meanings of the word. Bodkin also means a tool used to lace clothing together in medieval times or a small dagger. So my Bare Bodkins are something that will help you long hairs lace together your wonderful hair styles. And like a small dagger they are part of your protection. They help protect your hair from damage and do it in a hidden way. I hope that you enjoy this new, old design as much as I do.

They hold the hair exceptionally well, in almost any updo that you chose for your hair. The Bare Brass Bodkins are made of stronger heavier gauge brass material not the steel of regular amish hair pins. This is why they are able to be longer than the amish pins and still keep their shape. Yet they are light weight enough to wear all that you need to keep your elegant or elaborate hair styles without being too much.

When I first started making hair accessories over 6 years ago, these were the first style that I made. The essential u shaped pin that has been used by long hair for many millenia, I have just brought these back to the modern long hair. They are suitable for either men or women. Once you use these you will realize just why they have been around for so long. :D

I hand smooth them so that there are no sharp edges to them. These have no plating or coating to loosen over time, so these are long lasting pins.

The Bare Bodkin hair pins are a total of 4 inches in length or 10.3 cm.

I hope that you enjoy these as much as I do.

You can also check out my other metal hair forks and, hair forks and hair sticks made of wood as well as my beaded hair accessories in my Etsy shop. I create hair forks with titanium in several different ways. I also have both single stick as well as double stick sets as well as swords and hair forks of both round and flat material. You also might enjoy my brass hair forks and other metal hair forks and other metal work and bead work.

I hope that you enjoy my items as much as I enjoy creating them. Each item is the result of hours of care and time, just for your pleasure.

Blessings to you for stopping by my shop.
