This little leather peacock feather shawl pin was hand tooled using premium tooling leather. The colors are a range of shimmering hues, including green, bronze, royal blue and indigo, and they are FAR more vibrant than I can capture in my photos.
MEASUREMENTS + MATERIALS
✭ The leather feather measures approximately 4.25″ wide x 2″ high at the widest and highest points
✭ Fastens with a 5″ brass stick with textured vine effect; the stick has a handmade wirework dangle with an iridescent green drop
✭ The holes for the hair stick are spaced about 2.75″ apart, which is a small fit
✭ Materials include: tooling leather, acrylic paint, sealant, wooden stick
The hole spacing determines how much hair the barrette will hold. This hair slide has a hole spacing of 2.75″, which is on the smaller side. As such, this one will hold a small sized section of hair like a top knot or ponytail. It will also work nicely as a shawl pin.
These peacock feathers are entirely hand crafted ~ hand cut, carved, tooled and sculpted from premium tooling leather. Then dyed and painted in vibrant, shimmering colors. These whimsical pieces are entirely free form, created without a pattern ~ so each one is unique.
