More Hair Sticks

Sorry for the break between posts.

Headed out the front door to go grocery shopping on Monday...and failed.  Not the shopping (though I failed that too)-- I mean I failed the walking out of the front door, rolled a natural 1 on walking kind of failed.

Ended up twisting my ankle badly enough that we spent 2 hours waiting in the doctor's office just to make sure I hadn't broken it.  Thankfully, NOT broken.  Woohoo!  I'm just now getting back to feeling like me, albeit a slower walking version, thereof.

So here are the next round of hair sticks:

These first are the ones that I finished for me.  I still have 5 more of those to do (look foward to) when I finish the next rounds of the others for class.

Done with wood and metal beads.  I'd originally planned to turn these into temple ornaments, but after 2 years of not making that, and then discovering it wouldn't be what my SCAdian persona wore anyway, I decided they'd make wonderful hair sticks instead.

These, I designed for myself after making a similar set for my friend Annie and liking them so much.  Made with glass, metal and stone beads.

These, I plan to wear with the Turkish dancer garb I made.  They're made with metal, glass and lapis beads.

And here are the ones I made for class:
