This beaded leather butterfly hair slide barrette features vibrant jewel tones. The colors include iridescent blues and purples, with shimmering green and rose accents. My photography skills don’t do the colors justice – it’s far prettier than pictured!
MEASUREMENTS + MATERIALS
✭ Measures about 3.75″ high x 5.25″ wide. This is a large, bold piece.
✭ Hole spacing = 3.5″. This is a MEDIUM hole spacing; if your hair is very long or thick, this piece will serve you best for partial updos or as a shawl pin.
✭ Fastens with a 6.75″ handmade wooden stick, made of curly maple and dyed to a stunning deep purple tone.
✭ Hand crafted using top quality tooling leather, dye, artist grade acrylics, glass seed beads, beetle wings, and purple wooden stick.
Premium tooling leather was cut, carved, and then hand painted and sealed with a protective top coat. The wooden stick was hand crafted from curly maple, which has been dyed the most incredible shade of purple.
The butterfly’s body is comprised of two gorgeous green beetle wings, set in a hand beaded bezel with wirework accents. The beetle wings feature a beautiful shimmering emerald tone with blue highlights, and they almost look metallic. Because this is a pair of wings glued together, there is a small seam to one side, but it blends nicely and is not noticeable unless you’re looking closely for it.
