This has been a long time coming.
Today, I posted on my store a set of hairsticks that I made more than two years ago. I made them for myself, but I have never worn them. I present: the Three Rogues.
Oooooo, and a closeup:
Have I mentioned that I love taking pictures in the morning, when the light is just so? *contented sigh*
Anyway, the design is one of the first ones that I ever came up with; I am still pleased with it. I remember feeling so clever when I made sticks using all of the possible color combinations (yes, I was new to making hairsticks, but I was still enthusiastic).
I also remember that I had a lot of trouble learning the properties of the glue I was using... I had never used something before that bonded so quickly. This happened to me more than once:
Yes, that is one of the dice beads stuck to my finger. *grumble grumble* It's a rather blurry picture, but I think it still does a good job conveying what happened. My husband still hasn't let me live that down... He always tells me that I have to be perfectly awake when I glue my hairsticks, or I will end up with my fingers glued to my forehead. (And he's probably right...)
So! This is a special pair of hairsticks. I am pleased to be able to post them (to match the earrings and necklace I already had listed)... I would much rather they be put to use and loved by someone else, then sitting lonely in my hairstick box.
