These leather crow feather barrettes are painted midnight black, and accented with gorgeous wooden hair sticks with vibrantly colored stripes. The bold colors of the wood set a striking contrast against the black feather.
The holes in the feather are spaced at about 3.75″ apart, which is a larger spacing that is best suited to long and/or thick hair. I also offer this design in a small size that is well suited to ponytail holders or shawl pins. The two sizes are shown side by side (along with a ruler) in the last photo.
The artisan crafted wooden sticks are made of laminated birch plywood, dyed in rich vibrant hues. You can choose between 3 color options for the stick:
* Burgundy, grey, and plum stripes, approx 6.25″
* Autumn stripes of deep red, cinnamon and cocoa, approx 6.75″
* Summer stripes of yellow, green and blue, approx 7.25″

As with all of my leather craft, this piece was created using high quality materials (including premium tooling leather, artist grade acrylics, flexible sealant, and a high quality wooden stick) and over 25 years of leather working skill. Beauty and quality craftsmanship are important to me, so I don’t do “quick and dirty” work; I patiently design, cut, carve, shape, paint and seal each piece. It’s a slow process comprised of many steps, but the end result is a handmade work of wearable art that you can be proud to gift or cherish for years to come.
