One silver-toned filigree metal hair stick with a filigree end that I hammered together with brass brads. Only one side of this stick is decorated; I usually wear mine with the stone facing back. Sure, it’s fancy enough to be worn to special events–but it’s understated and easy enough to deal with that it’s totally okay to wear to the store.
Each stick is 7.25″/18.5cm from top to bottom. The part of the stick that goes in your hair is about 5″/13cm long, and the width of the filigree part is about 1.6″/42mm. They each weigh 17-19 grams, or about the weight of three quarters. These guys are solid metal, so they can stand up to some pretty heavy hair.
So what’s what?
The cat’s eye stones are glass, and the mood stones and faux opals are lightweight acrylic. The rose quartz, pyrite, amethyst, and adventurine are natural stones, while the carnelian has been heat-treated. The sea opal, faux malachite, goldstone, and blue goldstone are all man-made “stones.”
The banding and shading on the amethyst and faux malachite may vary. No worries–I’ll pick a good one for you.
