Here’s a stylized peacock feather barrette to tuck in to your tresses! This beautiful and functional little accessory will draw compliments whenever you wear it.
MEASUREMENTS + MATERIALS
✭ The leather feather measures approximately 6.25″ wide x 2.2″ high at the widest and highest points
✭ Fastens with an 8.25″ hammered copper hair stick (usable stick length = approx 7″)
✭ The holes for the hair stick are spaced about 4.25″ apart, which is a medium – large fit
✭ Materials include: tooling leather, acrylic paint, sealant, copper wire
The leather feather was hand cut and carved from premium tooling leather, then hand painted in iridescent hues of olive green, bronze, copper, peridot, turquoise and cobalt. The color has been sealed with a protective top coat. It fastens with hand crafted hammered copper hair stick.
The hole spacing determines how much hair the barrette will hold. This hair slide has a hole spacing of 4.25″, which is on the larger side. So this one is best suited to folks with thicker and/or longer hair. You can still use it if your hair is of average thickness, but you’ll probably want to secure your hair with an elastic tie first, and then run the stick through that.
