Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) - Hair Pin Small #1
This piece contains one small sprig of Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia), harvested lovingly from my own garden, dried and preserved in a glass-like point of clear resin. Lavender has been used as a purificatory herb in Europe since ancient times. In herbalism (and corroborated by modern science) it is well known as an invaluable anti-anxiety herb.
The resin piece itself measures about 35mm long by 9mm wide and is attached to a standard 2" long "ballet pin" or "u-pin" for easy hair insertion.
The piece is very lightweight and should fit securely any bun or updo.
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).
