Lately I've been overdoing it on beading (one more thing!) and I thought maybe some of you might get some pleasure out of my creations. After all... how many beaded hairclips does one mama and one baby without hair need?

They're peyote stitch, secured to a hairclip with ultrasuede, very sturdy and nice looking. I copied them from some that I saw at a first nations (indian) powwow and they turned out really well. I'll do them in any colour you like -- custom orders fine with me! A single one or pairs of smaller ones. Wish I could post a photo...

If you are interested in trading with me, I'll send you a picture of some of the ones I've done.

I love to trade for all kinds of stuff. I've done some awesome trades from people and have really enjoyed what I've received. Let me know if you're interested!

They sound beautiful. I am trying to think of things I could trade but realizing as the warm weather is coming I can't spend as much time making things.

I just wanted to let you know how tempting they sound!

I had the most interesting conversation with my 17 year old cousin -- I showed her the barrette and she said "oh it's really nice. What do you do with it?" Then she told me that I had 'eighties hair,' because I have longish hair that I like to wear 1/2 up in a clip! I felt so old! What an eye-opener.

I'm so glad you liked it! They're pretty small, so you can trade for whatever. Cheap materials, something small and fun. I just made a couple with butterflies and am wearing one now.
