Octopus Hair Holder


I made this for a wedding recently and absolutely fell in love with him. I had made an Octopus for Leslie, which got me thinking about these marvellous beasts and I decided they were the right amount of elegant balanced with not too girly to make fantastic hair decorations. I modelled him in wax and then cast him in bronze before gold plating him and the result is total luxury. I held him in my hair with 2 bobby pins and he stayed in for about 15 hours with no adjustment at all. He is genius at holding on, but of course he is. He is an octopus.

He can also be worn as a bracelet if you have super skinny wrists... super duper skinny I mean.
