Dwarven Hair Jewelry - I want this! Can't Post

The metal clips and such that we see in the Dwarves mustaches and braids and in their hair in general... I love those! Possessing rather long curly hair, I'd love to have things like these to wear in my own hair. If they were replicas, it could be a slight little nod to the movies and even a possible inside joke with other fans who notice. Does anyone know if they have made replicas of these hair clips? I've looked at a couple of the websites which sell the Jewelry and other collectibles but haven't found any.

I'm always looking for hair jewelry in general [In reply to] Can't Post

and don't have much luck other than the few standard things you can find at most stores.

Duncan Macleod (Highlander) used to have cool silver bands for his pony tails. I couldn't find anything like it for my son when he had long hair or anything truly lovely for my own long hair when I wanted adornment for a special occasion. I don't wear earrings and sometimes I can't wear a necklace with the gown I've chosen.

I would think, rather than looking for official licensed items, I'd look around etsy. And if you don't find anything, I'd contact people who are doing similar work and suggest they might find a market for Dwarf inspired hair jewelry.

One always has to be careful about how closely one models items they're selling to something someone else created. But I'm someone who doesn't need an exact replica. I like to see originality within the sphere of 'inspired by'. That said, there are a lot of items for sale on etsy that clearly cross the legal 'intellectual/copyright boundaries'. Maybe it isn't considered worth it to shut small times sellers like this down. But one can do a lot of 'Tolkien' shopping on Etsy. Not for exact replicas.. but for lots of other stuff. (They have the cutest little round Hobbit door necklaces, for example)
