This handcrafted leather luna moth barrette was created from premium tooling leather. The piece was hand cut, carved, dyed and painted before being sealed with a protective top coat. The colors are a mix of shimmering peridot green, gold, bronze and rose, accented with hints of opaque plum, fuchsia and off white.
The center of the moth has fine feather work details, and the “body” is comprised of a gorgeous bronze drusy cabochon with iridescent flashes of green and amber. The stone is set in a hand beaded bezel of glass seed beads, and I think that the stone may be pyrite, although I can’t remember now. This piece is also accented with a single faceted amethyst teardrop briolette, dangling from the bottom.
It measures about 3.75″ high by 4.25″ wide, at the highest and widest points. This piece fastens with a high quality French clip barrette closure, which measures about 3″ total. This is a medium sized barrette.
