What Are The Slide Things?
"Slides" are like bobby pins, but smoother and a little larger. They slide through hair, over fabric or bag straps, anywhere you'd like to place them. In hair, they help hold it back. On a coat or jacket lapel, on a bag, or anywhere, they are decorative and add a touch of beauty, team spirit, holiday fun, etc. You can imagine the possibilities, can't you?
Unlike some you may have seen, these are all original. I found good sources for the clips, the petal layers, the decorations, everything and I design & create each one. I even try not to make the same one twice.
I'm just making slides now, as opposed to barrettes or clips, since slides are more versatile for:
* adding to existing headbands (slimmer ones work better)
* adding to jacket or coat lapels (thick fabrics work fine)
* adding to bag straps, pockets, sides
... and more - more to imagine...
Also easy to add or make with a large safety pin on the back. Please email if interested in custom work.
I started making these at the suggestion of an artist friend. I keep making them because they're fun to do, and also because I believe that no one, especially kids or Moms, should have to spend a lot of money for a hair/decorative accessory. And everyone should be able to have fun with their holidays, even in rough economies.
Please email if you have a special request for an individual or team or club, etc. I have good sources for materials so I can usually come up with something.
