here are some hairsticks i have that i didn't sell over the summer. i make alot of polyclay jewelry but for some reason i never take pics. i'm thinking i remember why though now that i've uploaded the pics. i can never take good close-ups the colors always come out strange, like in these they look bluish.
Oh well, i'm going to share them anyhow  Smiley

they are just clay covered wood kabob type sticks that i cut down to a good hairstick size.

i frequently do the little curly tops on the ends like in these on my hairsticks, do you guys have any suggestions for other cute ways to top them off?

thanks for looking  Smiley

I like the idea of feathers! What about embedding a bit of chain in the top and hanging anything small that you find around your house. You could make little clay flowers or hang little silk ones. Little toy cars, puzzle pieces, beads, plastic army men, miniature toy tea cups, or barbie shoes. Go to the dollhouse sized section of the craft store and take your pick. I personally would love to have a pair of dice or barbie shoes hanging from hair sticks. Now that I think of it..... I'll hafta make some!

Beads or bead danges can look good, but as mentioned, you can put anything up there (clay or not) that you can attach to them, and that won't get easily broken or interfere with the use.

You might want to check out some of the hair sticks on this page that other clayers have made to see if anything inspires you:
(... click on Hair Sticks, under the Barrettes category...)
