These fantastical leather “faerie leaf” barrettes showcase spiraling veins that give them a whimsical feel. They were hand cut, carved, sculpted, dyed and painted, before being sealed with a protective top coat.
The maple leaf features rich shades of burgundy and maroon, and the embossed veins have been hand painted with metallic coppery bronze. It is accented with a tiger’s eye cabochon that has been set in a hand sewn bezel of glass seed beads. This one measures about 4.5″ wide x 4″ high.
The wintery elf leaf was painted in pearlescent snowy white, with metallic silver veins. It is accented with a vintage glass moonstone, set in a hand sewn bezel of glass seed beads and sparkling Swarovski crystal. The white one measures 4.75″ long by 2.75″ wide at the longest and widest points.
Both leaves fasten with high quality French clip barrettes, measuring about 3.25″ long (see last photos).
