Ch'iu-Lung by sodacrush Ch'iu-Lung by sodacrush
Ch'iu-Lung is paradoxically described as a "horned dragon" or "hornless dragon" in Chinese mythology but can also be translated as "coiling dragon".

This beautiful hair pin is decorated with two curling oriental dragons surrounding a lovely Bermuda Blue Swarovski Crystal. Elegant freshwater pearl and chain tassels dangle from either side and can be removed for greater versatility, making it perfect for both formal and daily wear.

Lol xD you can always make pictures of your own neck while watching the camera screen in a mirror, if you know what I mean (so you have to hold the camera the 'wrong' way around, not like the usual stupid duckface- 'look at me, holding my Iphone in front of my bathroom mirror' Facebook pictures xD) :p and otherwise I guess you have to wait untill somebody's bought it and beg them for a picture :D Pretty pleeeease, can you send me a pictuuuure xD

Haha yeah I think everybody knows them, regrettably enough xD
Oh yeah if it goes on the back of your head there's a flaw in my now formerly genius plan :D Oh well, there you go, extra motivation to sell it B-)

So beautiful!! Funny though, I thought this was the hair piece from the CCS movie 1. XD
It looks alike to a hair piece owned by Madoushi (A water sorceress) in a movie

Awesome! How does it pin into your hair? Is it a clip or...?
Reply

It's a pin! Like the U-shaped prong things, you can just stick it into your bun like a chopstick to hold it up :)

XD I never had up-to-the-butt long hair, but it's still so different when you lop off a length of hair xD Sometimes the outcome is great though :)

How long is your hair? o.o

sodacrush Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012
It's almost waist-length, but I always have in up in a bun because it's so hot here ^^; I'm really short and I'm scared short hair will make me look even more of a midget :XD:

The Chinese hair pins are beautiful. I love your work, you can tell that it is created by hand, that is what makes them so special. Good job, very pretty, my hair is not long enough.

Then keep it for yourself. If you do not wear it in a couple of months, put back up for sale. No harm no foul, no one gets hurt, and maybe this piece will bring you luck. I have got to have faith that there is luck otherwise I am Screwed. Take good care and remember to keep in touch we do not want me to go insane.

Haha, no chance of me wearing it! I don't get out much, and I'm going back to school in a couple of weeks so it's T-shirts and shorts for months! Well, may your lucky star bring YOU loads of luck! ;) Take care dear friend! :hug:

Did you really think I would leave you alone like that. Where would I get my laughs and then translate them to me mum. She so likes when I talk what I am typing (not really) but she loves hearing peoples comments. soda I do not think I could find another like you because I do not want too, I will talk to you soon and be glad I did not tag you. I have been tagged 3 times. With having to take care of my mom I answered the questions but have tagged nobody YET.
