This little leather peacock feather barrette was entirely hand crafted, and painted in fantasy hues of shimmering lavender, lilac, rose, periwinkle and purple. The photos do not completely capture the iridescent quality of these colors.
It measures about 3.25″ wide by 1.25″ high, and it fastens with a high quality French clip. This is not one of those cheap-o “French style” barrettes, but one of the sturdy (and increasingly hard to find) clips that has “Made in France” stamped on the back. The barrette finding measures about 2.5″ long, so it’s good for fine hair or for holding back smaller sections of hair.
