Hi everybody!

It has been ages since I posted.  I think the last thing I posted was my Octopus Necklace.  That post had such amazing and positive comments, that it never really left my mind.  Since posting last, I have been making lots of stuff and participated in a craft faire.

Anyway, I finally figured out what to do with my octopi!  Stick barrettes!  Observe:

These are so pretty, love the pearl essence. What a great idea for polymer. You make beautiful poly creations.
Can I ask how strong are they? I have unbelievably thick/coarse hair. Finding things that are attractive yet sturdy to pull my hair back is really hard to find. I'd love to attempt my own kinds of hair barrettes.  Grin

They are really sturdy, plus, you can always make them bigger / thicker if you find it doesn't work.  My hair is really thin (the curls make it look bigger) so what I have to do is use a scrunchie to actually put my hair up, and then I wear the piece as ornament.

Ok, I guess I can experiment... Make em a little thicker or maybe with two sticks for extra support. Thanks again for sharing. Cheesy

wowow!! these are soo beautiful!! Im going through chemotherapy right now and have always been a huge lover of hair ornaments but I think that since I lost all my hair that I admire things even more. I would love to do a swap with  you if your intrested. I know it will be a LONG time before I would be able to use it but it would definately be worth the wait, they are so beautiful!
