This hair clip is a brilliant handmade jewel.
The ceramic elements are modeled from clay. The entire model is cut into two halves,
emptied out of excess clay and then closed again.
This delicate operation gives the hair clip lightness and perfect portability.
The white terracotta clay is fired in a ceramic kiln at 1000°C.
The second firing with colors and glazes takes place at 920° centigrade.
The base of the hair clip is made of brass.
