With very rare and always noted exception, every hair jewelry design created by Susan Maxwell Schmidt is one-of-a-kind and never duplicated. These very special hair accessories are created with exquisite components such as precious metals, rare vintage Swarovski crystals, hand crafted lampwork beads, Venetian art glass and genuine gemstones. Once a first edition design is sold, one-of-a-kind special order versions, incorporating only small changes to the original design to retain the unique quality of every creation, are offered in very limited numbers. When the catalog style pages in the LongLocks Catalog are updated and only one special order of any given design remains available, it is moved from its catalog page to "Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow," as are any remaining designs when a LongLocks HairSticks style is retired.
Because Ms. Schmidt tends to work with vintage components that are available in limited numbers, once the last of the special order versions listed above are sold (especially in the case of Special Edition designs), they often cannot be recreated. This may well be your one and only chance to own any of these designs!
