MEASUREMENTS + MATERIALS
✭ Measures approximately 4.75″ wide x 3.75″ high at the tallest and widest points.
✭ Fastens with a 7.5″ hammered copper hair stick.
✭ The holes for the hair stick are spaced about 3.25″ apart, so this barrette will hold a medium sized section of hair.
✭ Materials include: tooling leather, glass seed beads, a real beetle wing, Swarovski crystal, faceted glass and moss agate beads.
This mixed media hair barrette combines leather craft, beadwork and wirework. The dragonfly’s wings, and the leaf that she rests on, are made from tooling leather. The “body” is an iridescent copper toned beetle wing, which has been set in a hand stitched bezel of glass seed beads. The tail is comprised of Swarovski crystal, moss agate stone, faceted glass, and a single glass dagger bead.
This hair slide should hold a medium sized section of hair. If your hair is especially fine or short, you may want to use it in conjunction with an elastic tie. If your hair is very long or thick, this accessory will probably work best for half up styles, rather than holding a full bun.
