This hair clip is made of tombak, a copper alloy, which is partially blackened. Applied to the clip's rectangular base is the plastic silhouette of a dragonfly. The blackened, almost antique-looking appearance of the hair clip gives the piece a romantic and timeless look. Because the hair clip is smaller than more conventional hair clips, the pieces lends itself well as a small accessory for updos and for fixing individual hair strands. (What is Tombak? More information: tombak).
