The Faerie Market: Moth Clip

Sometimes “there’s a bug in your hair!” isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

While pricey, I admire the craftsmanship on this Emperor Gum Moth Hair Clip.


I have a bizarre habit of considering accessories according to what unusual museum exhibit I’d hypothetically be likely to wear them to…plenty of entomological displays came to mind for this one.

Would you wear pretty bugs, birds and beasts in your hair?

  1. Since I’m very secure in my manhood I’m not afraid to say this is absolutely gorgeous. I can see a crafty lady turning this into a pin, too; perhaps attach to her purse strap. Your bizarre habit Dana is just simply a chronic case of being a stylishly apt woman, nothing some chocolate and spare cash can’t help.

  2. Bugs for sure! One of my earliest memories is begging my parents to buy me a scarab beetle set in resin that I saw and fell desperately in love with. These days I can’t bear to think of anything being killed for my adornment though, so may I choose a moth made out of gum instead?

    Museum exhibit to wear it to? Well anything at Pitt Rivers of course, or (is this allowed, as it’s not really museum fodder, but gorgeous and insect-like anyhow) perhaps a Popovy Sisters exhibition…? – Nx

  3. This is gorgeous! Years ago, I bought a book by Annemieke Mein, a textile artist. Here is her website: She has amazing talent and a great eye for capturing the little details.

  4. Hi there, just became alert to your blog through Google, and found that it’s truly informative. I’m going to watch out for brussels. I will be grateful if you continue this in future. A lot of people will be benefited from your writing. Cheers!
