    Sycamore is a gorgeous wood for hair toys! Don't try to make anything super thin and it will hold up well.

    Thank you for the advice, neko_kawaii! Next time we have to take off branches I think I'll see what I can make!

    I sewed this leather barrette thing. It was an experiment so it's not the neatest but it's pretty good. A bit heavy for my fine hair. It was inspired by ficcares and other stick-holder solutions. I like the earthy vibe

    I'm fine

The rainbow hair fork is so cute! Make me want to try woodworking.

    And here are mine. Those are from copper and nickel silver (wire + sheet). I was obsessed with the idea of stained glass hair forks, so I experimented with clear epoxy resin and dyes. The hair stick was initially supposed to be filled with resin too, but then I decided to leave it as is.

    Those are amazing. You are quite good. Keep up the good work. PS. I am the lady that created the rainbow forks
