I have made this limited edition clip with a vintage glass stone featuring a hand-gilded stringed instrument - it could represent a violin, viola, cello or double bass. This whimsical stone was made in West Germany around the 1950s, and sourced from old warehouse stock. It is designed to be worn as a hair clip but could also be worn on the neckline of a dress or jacket.
It has been mounted on a small filigree clip base in an antique bronze colour. The clip measures 3.5 cm in length and is 2.5 cm in diameter.
Handmade with vintage material which holds some evidence of its former life in a deepened patina and minor wear. I think that is what gives them so much charm.
