Fixed Air, Wave Hairpin, Brass
Hand-forged 12 gauge brass self-clasping wave-shaped hairpin by maker Tania Enriquez/Fixed Air. This beautiful hairpin best suits long and or thick hair, it works as a hairclip if you make a generous bun and put it through a good amount of hair or it can be treated like hair jewellery in which case you need to tie your hair up and then put the pin through above the ponytail or bun.
Due to the handmade nature of these, there is slight size and shape variation between pairs we see this as a celebration of the organic nature of Enriquez's work.
Width: approx.10.5cm Length:8cm -please note measurements can vary and are an approximate measurement.
Fixed Air is the jewellery work of Los Angeles-based Tania Enriquez, a practice that started over ten years ago as a means of tangible creative expression.
"Metal forging might be my favorite (so far) because of its fluidity in movement. You start with a metal wire, then you just let your hands move and see what happens... I call them wire sketches. I think there's so much beauty in being intuitive with the form that satisfies you... my goal is to be able to relate this feeling somehow".
