Summer flowers

A wonderful customer, who has requested many colour combinations of hair grips in the past, recently contacted me to see if I could create some more colour combinations for her.  This is such a lovely way to explore colour combinations, and I set about spinning some wool.

custom order

For some of the colours of wool, I approached a friend who dyes wool, and asked her to create some of the colours that were asked for.  Kirsty, at Wharfedale Woolworks kindly obliged me, and this enabled me to get the colours needed. rose and dark grey

Some of the colour combinations have been added to the shop, as I spun extra wool.  Others will be added when I find the time to add them!!  mint and light greyThis colour combination I think would make lovely hair grips for a bridesmaid, and can be ordered heremint and beige purple and dark greyI think this may be my favourite colour combination, olive and salmon pink.  It can be ordered right hereolive and salmonIf you would like to order any of the colours here that have not yet been added to the shop, you can order them via this listing, and just specify what colours you would like, or just drop me a line via a contact conversation on Etsy. pale pink and green

I am always open to custom orders, and love creating colour combinations especially for the individual, so if  you have your own ideas as to what colours you would like in a floral hairgrip, please do contact me. turquoise and cream

 

 

Adding to the range

I have a number of hair clips in my shop, in a variety of colours and have had a number of custom order for them, which has added to the number of colours available.  They are all made with handspun wool, and embellished with lace and crystal beads.

Some of the new colours are more summery, such as this beautiful lemon-y coloured hair grip. Available for order just here

Also some cream hair grips, which I think would be perfect for a summer wedding, or to add a touch of  glamour to an outfit.  Which can be bought here

I have also had a custom order for a gorgeous blue/green combination, which I can re-produce for you if you order it here.

Creating these, then sparked some other ideas, such as a ring, based upon the same design. This is secured to an adjustable ring base, meaning it will fit many different shaped fingers.  This can be bought here

I also had a desire to create some peacock inspired hair clips, which are available to buy here

I have an idea for some pastel coloured hair clips in pale blue and pink, but these are still in the development phase!

I am always open to colour combination suggestions, for both the hair clips and rings.  I can be contacted via Etsy to discuss any custom orders.

All you need to do is ask

One of the lovely things about crafting is being able to create something for somebody that is specifically for them.  Whether it be recreating a previous creation in different colours, such as these hair clips I have made on request following the hairclips I had made for the Guild stall back in November.

I will add a listing to my shop in the new year for custom hair clips to your own colour specifications.

I have also been making ruffle scarves, following a night out and a few admirers of the scarf I had made myself.

So two ruffle scarves requested and made, and now the option is listed here, so people can order the style and colour of scarf for me to knit for them.

As with anything I make, if there is something you like the idea of, but would prefer different colours, a different theme, or even if I haven’t made it but you have an idea you would like me to create, all you have to do is ask.
