Description

Staffordshire Hoard inspired hairslide – a bronze hairslide with embossed zoomorphic design and American black walnut wooden pin. Design inspired by a gold sword hilt found amongst the Staffordshire Hoard.

The wooden pin on the back holds the hair tightly to prevent the hairslide from slipping out. Hairslides with a wooden pin require a thicker mass of hair to be effective but once pushed in remain very secure.

On the 5th July, 2009, whilst metal-detecting on farmland in southern Staffordshire, Terry Herbert began to unearth the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon treasure ever found. Comprising over 1500 items in gold, silver and other alloys and valued at £3.3 million, the collection is thought to date back to the late 7th and early 8th centuries. St Justin has recreated history by producing items inspired by this amazing find.

Width: 80mm Height: 28mm | Length of pin: 117mm

Supplied in a velvet draw-string pouch.

    This is a beautiful piece, substantial enough to grip my long thick hair. The hairslide is a good weight, better than others I have and the workmanship is fantastic. Anglo-Saxon design is beautiful and mostly overlooked by people heading for everything Celtic (also beautiful). The bronze is made from Cornish tin and recycled copper thereby keeping production local with a lighter carbon footprint. As you can see, I am delighted with my purchase and will certainly be buying more. Oh. I forgot to mention how really quickly it arrived, well packaged and in it’s own velvet drawstring bag. If you buy one you won’t be disappointed.
