Hair Barrette or Shawl pin »
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Outdoorsy, Whimsical, Romantic, Hipster, Funky
Made with a heavy gauge copper wire which I have hammered, this can be worn as a hair barrette or Shawl pin. This design is the most intricately detailed of my barrettes. The wings have been shaped and then hammered, then the body of the butterfly has been woven with a thinner gauge wire, adding a beautiful contrast in texture but also making it very strong. The central detail in the wings has been shaped and hammered , then wrapped and the coiled into position adding detail but also making this piece very strong. This design is adjustable, by passing the pin through different loops increases or decreases the space between the barrette and the pin, allowing you to secure different amount of hair or fabric. It measures 3 1/4" wide from tip to tip on the top wings and 2 2/3" tall and has a deep curve which is 1/2". The pin is 5" long, to allow it to be fitted diagonally.Is this your project? Tell us more!
