Included in the special offer are these beautiful creations.

Dragonfly Hairgrip

All four designs are very closely related. I added the Felicity headband onto my website a number of years ago and from that initial design the others were conceived.

I decided to create a more elaborate version and so Felice was designed, I then though a simple hairgrip version would really complement the two headbands so I scaled the flower down and finally I realised while making the headbands that the petals really lends themselves  to creating beautiful wings so…….the dragonfly was born!

I still think the collection has yet more miles……maybe a comb design, a smaller dragonfly and a dragonfly headband, watch this space!

Pearl Special Offer

Hairpin or Hairgrip?

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

This is the most popular question I get asked when a bride or bridesmaid is choosing her hair accessories!

The answer can be summed up easily…….

Hairpins have two prongs about half a centemetre apart they do not grip to the hair they simply push into hair worn up and hold. They cannot be worn in hair worn down and they are available in brown and black and disappear into the hair only revealing the hair decoration.

Hairgrips also have two prongs but the prongs sit together and when pushed into hair they grip. They can be worn in both hair worn up and down. They are available in brown, black, silver and gold/blonde.

Most of my designs are available on both hairgrips and hairpins so the only consideration is the style you will be wearing your hair. If you are in any doubt ask your hair dressers advice.
