Tiny hair pins – jewels for dolls and people!
I made a set of silver combs for my dolls earlier this year, and then realized that I wanted to wear them too – as jewellery! The smallest comb was my favourite of the set, so I converted the design into a pair of human earrings and a pendant, thus killing two birds with one stone. Disclaimer – no birds were harmed in the production of this jewelry. I love birds.
This comb design was loosely inspired by an antique French Ivory comb I had seen in Paris a few years ago. I longed to wear it in my long hair, but as a recent art school graduate I couldn’t even imagine being able to afford such luxury. Perhaps it’s still out there and I’ll find it again one day.
The full set of different doll combs, from which this jewelry was made, hasn’t been photographed yet, but will be very soon. I’m very excited to show you!
In the meantime, email me if you’re interested in having these little Haircomb Jewels for yourself. They are available in sterling silver as a set of three or separately. Each comb weighs 2.4 grams. Hooks are hypoallergenic surgical steel, chain is not included. Pendant is $190 CAD, Earring set is $380 CAD. A full set of all three is $550 CAD. I’ve some available to ship right away, and can take several pre-orders for May.
And now I’m back to working on a new porcelain doll that will be wearing these!
