Rasta Lotus Hair Clip
The Challenge: Create a set of custom hair clips for hip Oakland, CA blogger and photographer Ace (www.elloace.com). She loves the Earthy Rasta feel and was looking for something bold but still wearable.
The Solution: I used muslin fabric, which is natural and undyed, with visible speckled imperfections in the cotton. I hand dyed it the 3 colors of the traditional Rastafari flag- green, gold and red. I used the fabric to make 3 different types of hair clips and incorporated beads from my local bead shop- Beadlush- including a brass glazed ceramic bead that I love. BTW- Ace loved them an they are on the way to Oakland as we speak!
