This fantastical leather leaf barrette is a one of a kind heirloom accessory. The design is based on a sycamore leaf, and it was crafted from premium tooling leather and painted in warm fall browns with dark chocolate accents. The featherwork medallion at the center is comprised of pheasant, coque and peacock feathers; this is embellished with a gorgeous moss agate cabochon, set in a hand beaded bezel of glass seed beads, faceted glass and genuine bloodstone beads.
It’s a larger hair slide, intended to hold a full bun. The holes are spaced at about 4.25″ apart, which is best suited for longer and/or thicker hair. It fastens with a copper wire stick – handcrafted by GypsyMoon Art Studios – and it’s been hammered for texture and added strength. Again, this is a large piece – the exterior dimensions of the leaf are about 6″ wide x 5.5″ high when flat. When in use, it will curve up some and thus seem a bit smaller — but it’s still a big, bold piece.
