This sculpted leather barrette is entirely hand crafted from premium tooling leather. The design is based on a luna moth, and the iridescent colors are far more vibrant and complex than these photos suggest. The piece is hand tooled and painted in shimmering shades of iridescent emerald green, metallic gold, bronze, purple, violet, fuchsia and white.
These photos show several of the past barrettes that I’ve done in this color combination; as you can see, there are unique variations from one to the next, but all share the same design, colors and quality.
When flat, it measures about 5.25″ wide by 4.25″ high at the highest and widest points. You can choose the barrette finding that works best for you (see 4th photo for different barrette types):
* aluminum spiral hair stick
* brass spiral hair stick
* copper spiral hair stick
* quality French clip barrette
You’ll notice that some photos show this piece alongside another very similar luna moth, done in more of an emerald green with jewel toned accents. That color variation can be found here.
All of my leather craft is created using the highest quality materials and over 25 years of leather working skill. Beauty and quality craftsmanship are important to me, so I patiently design, carve, shape, paint and seal each piece. It’s a slow process comprised of many steps, but the end result is an original handmade work of wearable art that you can be proud to gift or cherish for years to come.
