This handcrafted hair pin is made from Elaeagnes Quicksilver Wood. Ranging from yellow to dark brown, it features multiple tones of lustrous grain running through the pin and a small pith line at the top which has a small line of bark round the rim. A very sturdy and eligant pin.
Elaeagnes is a commonly found shrub here in UK gardens. Quicksilver is a lesser known variety with a more slender leaf than it's more common cousin. Elaeagnes has mostly been used for knife scales, bowls and pens etc as it is often multi stemmed. This shrub hides some impressive grain. Some know the tree as Russian Olive as it can resemble Olive wood. This peice was pruned from a well established shrub here in Wiltshire in 2020.
