This sculpted leather barrette is loosely modeled after the cheerful little birch leaves in my area. Hand cut and shaped from high quality tooling leather, and then hand painted in shimmering olivine green. The color is a rich olive green, with a beautiful sheen. I love making these little leaves – each one is a little bit different, with its own character. They’re available on my site in a variety of colors (as shown in the last few photos) this listing is for the olivine.
The brown wood stick measures about 6″ long, and it runs through the length of the leaf, from stem to tip. The holes are spaced about 2.75″ apart — this is a smaller spacing, good for fine hair, partial updo’s, or for use as a ponytail holder or shawl pin.
This design is part of an open ended series. Since each one is handcrafted, there will be minor variations from one to the next; your hair accessory will be of the same style and quality as the ones shown here.
