Borage (Borago officinalis) - Medium Hair Pin
$20.00 Sold Out
This decorative hair pin contains one small Borage (Borago officinalis) flower, in pink coloration, preserved in a small crystal of glass-like resin. This particular specimen was grown by me from seed in my organic garden. It is a commonly held belief that Borage confers happiness to all who observe it, and carried as a charm, Borage is said to aid in the courage of the wearer.
The resin piece itself measures about 45mm long by 13mm wide and is attached to a standard 2" long "ballet pin" or "u-pin" for easy hair insertion.
The piece is lightweight and should fit securely any bun or updo for medium or long length hair.
If you have particularly long or thick hair and think you may need a few extra u-pins I'd be happy to send along some complimentary un-embellished pins for you.
(Please note that the hair pins worn in the example photo are not the exact pin you will receive; the pin you will receive has never been worn).
