Tian-Tsui is a style of Chinese art that uses Kingfisher feathers to adorn hairpins, headdresses and fans, among other fine items. My Kingfisher Feather Hairpins have been inspired by this 2000 year old tradition.
Now you can wear Kingfisher feathers in your hair! Whether it be for a special occasion, like your wedding, a Spring Carnival at the races, or just a touch of style for the day.
Each hairpin is carefully created in full sterling silver, polished to a high shine, and then delicately hand painted with porcelain paint in iridescent blue and aqua. Measuring 8.5 cm from the top of the feathers to the bottom of the pins (the pins are 5.5cm long), my hairpins are sturdy, yet lightweight.
Lilygriffin jewellery is dainty and delicate, so care must be taken when wearing and storing it.
Please do not wear while exercising, swimming, gardening, showering, cleaning or sleeping. Store in a soft protective pouch or box out of direct sunlight and away from moisture, excessive heat or cold. Please do not store in the bathroom. Avoid contact with household chemicals, perfumes, creams, and hairspray/gels.
I would be delighted if you wanted to wear my jewellery everyday, but please be aware that you will be able to enjoy your handpainted and 24k gold embellished pieces longer if they are not worn on a day to day basis.
