Wanted to make hair or shawl pins but couldn't find those hard-to-get plain black sticks that were the right size? Fret no more.
These high-quality black lacquered sticks are the answer to your creative urges--imported from Japan, these tapered round cedar sticks have been coated with a durable black finish that feels perfect in the hand; the finish is slightly textured for an excellent grip in hairdos and woven shawls, with softly pointed tips that slide through anything. Each stick has been hand-trimmed to approximately 7" for just the right length in a chignon; you may request other lengths at no charge.
The sticks come in a set of ten, and there is NO CHARGE for shipping withing the continental USA.
Let your creativity loose! The finished hairpins in the last photo are for illustration only--the polymer clay finials are not included in this listing.
