The Elana Hair Chain was sawed, filed, and soldered by hand. Like almost all of my products, this accessory is made out of copper materials.
Being a Black woman with natural afro textured hair plays a big role in my appearance. I wanted to fabricate an accessory that is not only unique, but reflects an aesthetic that would be complimentary to my physical appearance. Therefore, I created a series of hair-chains with combs that would stay in place for afro textured hair. Though, I like to make it clear that these hair accessories were designed with afro hair texture in mind, it can be worn by any person with any hair texture; both afro and non afro hair textures alike. It is very important to me that diversity is reflected in the fashion industry, which is why it is a big importance to me that my brand reflects these core values.
PLEASE BE ADVISED that copper tarnishes quicker compared to silver or gold; therefore, all of my accessories are coated with a protector to keep the colour and luster vibrant for a longer time.
