Crimson Red Dragon and Folding Fan Hair Stick with Antique Bronze Accents - Akane
A unique oriental inspired antique bronze hair stick with bright crimson red, antique bronze and a working folding fan. This gorgeous hair stick with it's rich flowing Asian style design is sure to become one of your favorite hair accessories.
This enticing new hair stick begins with a classic black wood hair stick pin topped with an ornate antique bronze bead cap. Next I placed an antique bronze saucer shaped bead. The middle position is held by a large brilliant crimson red Czech faceted glass round enveloped between two ornate square antique bronze bead caps. I ended the design simply with another antique bronze saucer bead.
The intricate oriental inspired dangle features ancrimson red oriental cord knot accented with antique bronze spacers beads. From this knot hangs a beautiful brass folding fan delicately engraved with a phoenix bird design on both sides. An antique bronze tassel of chain hangs from the fan which actually opens and closes! I added three strands of antique bronze chain off to the side and on one strand added a striking dragon charm, also in antique bronze. I named this hair stick Akane, which is a Japanese name meaning "brilliant red".
