My New Year’s Resolution is to use it or lose it as far as collecting goes. So when I opened a drawer and ran across my collection of hand clips, I had to think fast to save them. This vignette features a lovely Victorian hand adorned with pearls used to hold a pair of gloves.
“Keep nothing you do not believe to be beautiful or useful”. Tall order, but this tiny French “hand” mirror ticks both boxes. It’s beautifully crafted with the elegant hand of a lady as the handle to the two-sided mirror. It’s a keeper!
This pink porcelain piece by Lefton is used on the hall table as a business card holder,
while this stylish open hand holds rings and pins. I love the painted nails and ring.
This one is used on the desk to hold papers, as it’s intent.
Nevertheless, I also use them to hang pictures or hold vintage handbags. I even hot-glued pins and brooches to cover the nail heads for extra sparkle!
Last, is this framed collage of hand clips which I find beautiful on their own,
but they can also be used to display jewelry. Yep, you guessed it, I didn’t lose a one!
So if you ever need a hand you know who to call!
