Here’s a celestial variation of my popular leather raven feather barrettes. These leather primary wing feathers feature a hand painted galaxy theme in iridescent hues of purple, blue, violet and indigo over a black base. They’re scattered with metallic silver stars, and the hole cut outs for the stick are star shaped as well. These make wonderful accessories for long hair, and they also function nicely as a shawl pins.
The leather portion measures just shy of 6″ long when stretched out flat, though it curves up to seem a bit smaller when worn. There are multiple star shaped holes on the leather piece, which gives these barrettes variable spacing. Thus, this design works well for those with fine hair OR thicker hair. The maximum hole spacing is about 3.5″ apart (medium sizing), with several options in between. Use the drop down menu to choose between an artisan crafted aluminum wire hair stick or a black wooden stick.
This listing is for ONE of these galactic feather barrettes. At this time, I have two of them and I have not decided if I’ll make more.
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. This takes longer than copying or mass production, but the end result is a handmade work of wearable art that you can be proud to gift or cherish for years to come.
