A 'must have' for anyone who regularly wears a pony tail(s). A great way to dress up your hair style. The small Celtic Thistle Hair Tie is cast from a hand-sawn and hand-engraved model, allowing me to achieve exceptional detail in the casting. When you hold it in your hand, the comforting weight speaks to the quality my work. They work; they won't fall out; you can change the elastics. Sterling Silver hair tie measures 7/8 inches in diameter. Elastic bands are easily replaceable, and come with instructions. Gift boxed.
Associated with the element of air, the Thistle has become one of the national emblems of Scotland. It is thought to lend strength, courage, and protection to those who wear it. The Thistle is also associated with the Celtic warrior goddess Luaths Lurgann, known as Ireland's fastest runner and aunt of Fionn MacCumhal.
