    Talking Elymwold on Etsy

    So, I got my Elymwold customs today and I was looking for the thread to spam with pictures... and I realised there's no thread about this store!!! (or is there and did I just miss it???)

    This can't be, so I decided to make one...

    Have you got any Elymwold pretties? Do you want some? Do you just want to drool over other people's hair-toys? Come and share!

    These sticks are very, very high-quality. The materials (various types of wood, acrylic and burls) are excellent, and the finish is the high-gloss, glass-like finish of MtMs or TTs or Graydogs. Prices as HIGHLY reasonable. Nigel is a very nice person to deal with and has excellent customer service, and though he's all the way in Australia, shipping is fast and not at all expensive.

    Here are mine...

    First of all, the packaging is lovely. Can you spot the kangaroos? And it's super-secure too!

    So, come on and share pics of your Elymwold pretties with the rest of us!

    This thread is definitely overdue, thanks for making it dfotw! I'll throw mine into the mix too.


    It's silver ash and amber acrylic, with a band of Tasmanian blackwood in between.

    I really can't say enough good things about this seller. Lovely in communication, beautiful top quality workmanship - I'd love to see him explore some burls, especially dyed burls.

    The sticks look gorgeous and I'm particularly impressed with your watermark - it looks pretty but must be devilishly difficult for a would-be photo-thief to contend with.

    Lovely stick in a gorgeous bun! I also love burls for their soft, organic quality and the way they take dye so beautifully so if he moves in that direction I will be putty ...

    Thank you! Ditto, I love the coloured burls I've seen in Graydog and MonktheMonk's work, I'd be absolutely doomed if Elymwold followed suit!

    Beautiful sticks everyone! His work really is outstanding. I have one too and although it's gorgeous the one I chose matches my hair color too closely, so I'll probably end up swapping it at some point and get one in a different color. If he does dyed burls I'm definitely in!

    Oh no, I don't have an action photo of his stick, I'll have to get one after washing and putting up my hair tomorrow! But yes, my Elymwold stick is by far my favorite, perfectly seamless , smooth like butter yet holds like nobody's business! I'll be purchasing from him in the future again for sure! That burl-topped stick is singing its siren song to me!
