Fashion Friday 5/17/13

Okay, so it’s not a hat this time, but it is something delightful to wear on your head.

This adornment was made by Saorsa Studio of Beads.

Or more specifically, in your hair.

It works best, I think, if you have a coarse or curly texture to your locks, to put this ornament in when your hair is still a bit damp, as mine is in these pictures. The stick holds the hair pretty well this way; most of mine is piled up here, twisted only slightly, and still feels secure.

The beads are green and a very pale amber-orange.

I love this rose bush. It grows roses in three different colors – white, pink, and fuschia — even though it came from one single bareroot plant. It also thrives better than any of our other rose bushes or climbing rose vines. Now that the rains have stopped for a while, maybe I can tend to the garden a bit more. You know, in my copious amounts of free time.

An ornament like this also looks very lovely with a full up-do for a daytime/work look.  (Wearing it with one’s hair down is a bit more romantic.)  Even a severe chignon can look very feminine with beads dripping from it.

What interesting things have you worn in your hair before?
