This red leather feather (or leaf) is an excellent accessory to hold back your locks, or to hold your shawl closed. The design is simple and striking – a little leather leaf (or feather) in bold reds fading out to deep scarlet, accented with a black wood stick.
The holes on this piece are spaced at about 3″ apart. This is a medium spacing, so if your hair is super long or thick it will probably suit you best for half up’s, as a ponytail holder, or as a shawl pin.
These photos show some of the ones that I’ve made in the past. As you can see, there are minor variances from one to the next, as is typical of handmade work. Your hair accessory will be of the same style and quality as the ones shown here.
As with all of my leather craft, this piece was created using high quality materials (premium tooling leather, artist grade acrylics, water resistant sealant, quality wooden stick) and over 25 years of leather working skill. Beauty and quality craftsmanship are important to me, so I don’t do “quick and dirty” work; I patiently design, carve, shape, dye, paint and seal each piece. This is more time consuming than other methods, but the end result is a handmade work of wearable art that you can be proud to gift or cherish for years to come.
