This leather butterfly barrette was loosely inspired by the color patterns of the blue morpho butterfly. It was entirely hand crafted using premium tooling leather, which was hand cut, carved, dyed and painted before being sealed with a protective top coat. The colors are a blend of iridescent blues, ranging from pale aqua to sapphire and deep indigo, accented with black.
The butterfly’s body is accented with a beautiful black metal filigree, which adds some nice texture and interest to the piece.
The exterior measurements are about 3″ high x 4.25″ wide, at the highest and widest points. It fastens with a quality French clip barrette with the words “Made in France” stamped on the back. The clip is a medium-small size, measuring about 2.75″ across.
