Little Rainbow vintage hair clip
An early 20th century paste hair clip came my way. I loved its dinky size and it’s ‘eye’ like shape (I'm always on the lookout for these!) and it’s near perfect snappy clip action. But it’s pastes had faded to a dark smudgy grey. I loved it nevertheless and thought about keeping it just as it was. But the pastes had lost their sparkle and it just looked flat in the hair. So I decided to take the plunge and revamp it with stones from my collection of vintage foiled crystals. I kept its one remaining bright ‘white’ stone and scattered a rainbow across the rest.
One-of-a-kind reworked vintage. Measures approx 30mm x 12mm.
