Midweek Modness: Sterling Silver Brutalist Ponytail Holder

sterling modernist ponytail holder

Here’s one of the more unusual pieces that I’ve had in my possession. I believe it’s a hair accessory, although it could also be a scarf holder. I never could get it to hold my hair or scarves properly. It’s stamped 925 and some other set of indistinct initials. Most likely made by an unheralded studio silversmith.

Because I never figured out what exactly to do with it, I sold or traded it. I still think of it though because unsolved mysteries drive me crazy.
