Flower Vine Filigree Hair Slide | Shawl Pin


Click/tap on images for enlarged views and descriptions.

A medium-sized hair slide or shawl pin featuring a vintage flower vine filigree design of antique bronze metal as its center. The center is made of a zinc alloy so it is lead and nickel safe, and it stands out against the surrounding coiled black-dyed longleaf pine needles (Pinus palustris) and the complementary teal-colored Brazilian waxed Linhasita thread with which it is stitched. Most suitable for thick, long hair or as a shawl/scarf pin.

The hair stick is wood with a delicate, retro-Asian decorative design carved on one end. The stick is about 6.7″/17 cm long, and is suitable for most thick long hair. The smooth black surface adds a classical elegance to this piece.

Overall size: vertical oval, 3.25″/.3 cm wide X 3″/7.6 cm tall (without stick)

Care & Specs

Coiled pine needle creations are gifts from nature coiled with bundles of pine needles harvested after they’ve naturally fallen to the ground, and hand stitched with various waxed cords or threads. Many pine needle creations take more than forty hours to craft—truly labors of love that I hope may be enjoyed by others for many years to come. ~NMc

  • Care Recommendations
    Avoid fully immersing in water. Subsequent drying and contraction of water-soaked and swelled needles may loosen stitches.
  • Avoid direct sunlight: it could potentially damage organic materials or unevenly fade dyed elements used in your basket.
  • Gently remove dust with a soft paintbrush, or use a can of compressed air. Lightly wipe baskets with a damp cloth using cold water (without fully immersing in water).
  • Do not place in a microwave oven: metal parts may have been used in construction, and threads are coated with wax—it’s non-toxic, yet, could melt when exposed to heat.
  • Baskets are food safe, but to ensure ease of cleaning and their longevity, it is advisable to keep food separated from basket interiors with a cloth napkin or similar protection.
