These hand-forged brass pins look sharp and work great. Simply wrap hair into a bun and slide/weave the hairpin through it for a secure and stylish hold. You may even find it serves other functions...
Each hairpin is generally between 6-7 inches in length, tapered to a point on one end and forged to flat on the other. The parallel lines---2 on one side, 3 on the other side---have been carved out of the metal, and oxidized black for contrast.
Please note: Each hairpin will vary slightly. See the photos of a number of hairpins lined up alongside each other to get a sense of this.
