These are hair sticks. They are a set of two matching sticks that have been sanded, wood burned, painted, and then sealed. They are for holding your hair a bun on your head. I got the idea from using pencils in my hair, and from looking at Asian hair pieces.
I enjoy the process. They are going to be wrapped with a bit of sinew and sold in pairs for $2.00. They will look really cute in some one’s hair holding it up in the warm weather. I found a large box full of brand new chopsticks in their wrappers, so I opened them up, cut them, shaped them, sanded them and finished artistically.
I’ll take pictures in hair when I’m done. I like to keep these kind of things in my pencil box on my desk, then I have them for a quick ‘something’ to put my hair up with, that has its own little bohemian groove to it. Pretty and simple. Useful.
