CLINQ EDITION #13: MOTHER OF PEARL
With our CLINQ EDITION #13, we dive deeper into the world of pearls. As we have been asked many times for pearl hair clips in smaller sizes during the last few months, how could we refuse – and granted, that did not take much convincing.
Just the idea of pearls is fascinating: pearls are formed when an irritant, like a grain of sand, becomes trapped in a mollusk. To protect itself, the mollusk emits two substances to form the nacre, or mother-of-pearl, to essentially smother and isolate the grain of sand. Over time – up to several years – the mollusk adds layer over layer, transforming a grain of sand into a wondrous and perfect little pearl. And what a beautiful result from what is essentially a moment of conflict – it would be like showering a trespasser with hugs and kisses.
EDITION #13 / HAIR CLIPS
Pearls are also very much at the heart of our first ever season of CLINQ BANGLE BRACELETS, bringing our very own blend of technology and craftsmanship to your wrist.

WOMEN WE ADMIRE
Since our very first collection, all CLINQ styles have been named after women we admire. Scientists, writers, politicians, sportswomen, entrepreneurs, designers, activists, or simply women who achieved extraordinary things in their lifetime, often against all the odds and constraints of their time and society. To celebrate our 10th edition, we produced a small booklet that profiles 10 of the women that have served us as continuous inspiration and reference point. It comes free with every order from the CLINQ store, as a small thank you for your loyal support.
