Story: So the jewelers guild that my girlfriend and i belong too, have a few jewelry cases at the largest rock and gem show in Canada. They were asking the members to make some sort of pin or broach, so i decided to go the opposite rout of everyone else in the group and make myself a cloakpin. As one of the ladies in the group pointed out it works amazingly well as a hair tie.
