My colorful magpie hair slides are hand crafted from premium tooling leather, and hand painted in black, white and metallic green and indigo. The colors have a brilliant iridescent quality that is just stunning when the light hits.
These images show several of the magpie barrettes that I’ve made in the past. As you can see, there are small variances from one to the next – but each one uses the same design, colors and quality.
The birds are angled as if in mid-flight, so they do not hang perfectly straight or symmetrical. They measure about 4.25″ long by 4.5″ wide, and the holes can be spaced up to 3.25″ apart.
You can choose the type of barrette finding that works best for you (see photos for different barrette types):
* aluminum spiral hair stick
* brass spiral hair stick
* copper spiral hair stick
* quality French clip barrette
All of my leather craft is created using the highest quality materials and over 25 years of leather working skill. Beauty and quality craftsmanship are important to me, so I patiently design, carve, shape, paint and seal each piece. It’s a slow process comprised of many steps, but the end result is an original handmade work of wearable art that you can be proud to gift or cherish for years to come.
