Artist's Comments:

Visually: This is so much more than just another way to put flowers in your hair. The different sizes and shapes of the two settings here play important roles, whereas in many other styles in this collection it is principally the flowers that make impact. The longer setting has a distinct line to it that extends beyond the two more delicately colored orchids.The broader setting allows for larger wider flowers. To best appreciate just how to maximize this look it is important to read our special note on alligator hair clip brooches.

Practically: This design style has so many applications not only in the hair but in many other ways as brooches and clasps, mostly as “the multi-purpose brooch that makes no holes!” To better appreciate these applications, please make a point of reading our page on alligator hair clip brooches.

Clips Available in Silver or Gold.

Description

Our studios are strategically located right in the heart of the orchid growing area of The Orchid Isle – the Big Island of Hawaii.

It is here that only the best varieties of our orchids are carefully selected for use in our creations, each undergoing our exclusive and gentle preservative
processes.

Our products are unlike any other – made with real flowers they are permanently durable, pliable and practical to wear. They will not dry out, or wilt; if they are dropped, they do not shatter into pieces; each has effectively been turned into a permanent fresh cut flower. While most flowers change color over time, ours will be retained, softening in intensity, developing a patina over time.

We use mostly dendrobium orchids largely due to their suitable size and strength. The greatest influence upon us however, is the wide extent to which this orchid is recognized and in demand by visitors to the Islands.

Our orchid items are not any conventional form of jewelry or accessory. With every flower item sold we provide guidelines on how to maintain them, keep them clean and best stored when not in use. Our orchids should be held by the metal or wooden settings only, not by the flower petals; they should be stored separately and upright in their original box when not being worn.

Important aspects of our guarantee are in our FAQ’s section of the menu.
