Marquetry Hairclip Project

This is one of my current projects. I have been working on making marquetry hairclips. It has been fun and challenging at the same time. Working on such a small scale really sharpens one’s ability.

I also have been making plainer clips. It is nice to let to wood grain speak for itself. Some of the woods used include Rosewood, Redwood Burl, Bird’s Eye Maple, and Zebrawood.

The finished pieces will be about 2″ x 4″.
