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 deep purple. I love making these little leaves – each one is a little bit different, with its own character.
The dark wood stick measures about 6.25″ long, and it runs through the length of the leaf, from stem to tip. The holes are spaced about 2.25″ apart — this is a small 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.
