|LongLocks SugarStix hair ornaments were inspired by one of the greatest fashion icons of our time. Although she was many things to many people, Diana, Princess of Wales certainly made her mark with style. She once wore the most stunning cocktail dress I have ever seen... a sleeveless little number that was "sugared" with tiny clear glass seed beads that entirely covered the pattern of the watercolor floral fabric beneath, creating a shimmering, frosted effect. It was simply gorgeous and though it took me literally years to finally discover who the designer was (it was part of Catherine Walker's "Russian Collection SS '97" and was worn by Diana on June 23, 1997 to the Christie's of New York auction preview of her gowns), that dress has stuck in my mind since the first time I saw it, and my admiration of it eventually manifested itself into LongLocks SugarStix hair jewelry.
Designed with a focus on vintage Swarovski crystal, hand crafted lampwork by internationally recognized glass artists and exceptional beads coveted by collectors, LongLocks SugarStix hair ornaments are created by detailing natural bone hair sticks in floral decoupage or graphic designs and then finishing them with a glittering "sugared" effect. The result is a frosted, opulent design of exquisite beauty. The sugared designs are preserved under several layers of clear, glossy enamel. Every hand crafted LongLocks SugarStix design is recorded in the LongLocks archive, one-of-a-kind, and never exactly duplicated! These original hand crafted hair ornaments and the process by which they are created are a LongLocks HairSticks® exclusive and cannot be found anywhere else.
