These striking leather feather barrettes were inspired by corvids – ravens, crows, magpies, etc. They’re handcrafted from tooling leather and painted black with an iridescent sheen that is a bit more subtle than these photos suggest. You can choose between three different color variations:
Black/ Green, Blues and Purples
Each one varies a bit in size, but generally speaking they range from about 5″ – 5.5″ long. They fasten with high quality French clips – these are the ones that are stamped with “Made in France” on the back, not those the cheapo “French style” knock offs. The clip finding measures about 3″ long, which is a nice medium – large sized clip.
As with all of my leather craft, these pieces are created using high quality materials and over 25 years of leather working skill. Beauty and quality craftsmanship are important to me, so I don’t do “quick and dirty” work; I patiently design, carve, shape, dye, paint and seal each piece. This is more time consuming than other methods, but the end result is a handmade work of wearable art that you can be proud to gift or cherish for years to come.
