Working in a studio with two fibre artist has had an effect on me. First is was buttons, then drop spindles, then stitch markers and knitting needle. Now it is shawl pins, big shawl pins that do double duty. I make the two sides different and include two pins so a pin can be used with either side facing out. The ring is flat and curves a little in the direction that you wear it but will bend back the other way so you can get a whole different look. I have borrowed fibre to show the two faces of this shawl pin but they will work for hair too.
This is fun! I think that I will made a bunch of them!!! But all little different of course.
