    These are all so beautiful! I saw some lovely antique combs in an antique shop in northern virginia, but alas, my wallet said no. I would love to own something beautiful and old like these that you all have.

    Hi all! I thought I'd share my first "antique" hair stick. It's not a genuine piece because the real one is probably in a museum somewhere. According to the creators, it is a "Bronze hairpin with a dragon's head that also works as a pin for clothing. It is a reproduction of the 10th Century original item that was found during excavations in the Viking settlement of Hedeby."

    It can be found here: https://grimfrost.com/products/hedeby-hairpin-bronze

    It looks much more beautiful in real life, and has a gorgeous golden color. Of course bronze tends to change color over time and must be cleaned periodically. Here it is in my lightly oiled bun: https://imgur.com/gallery/U5Dc1mW



    It's a bit slippery and if you have a lot of hair either in thickness or length, it might be better in a half-up style.
