What materials did you use? For this variation of the double spiral hair barrette I have attached Lapis Lazuli and copper beads of graduating sizes to the inside edge at the bottom of the both spirals with copper wire, I have then wrapped the base of each bead with a birds nest setting. The repetitive nature of the wrapping has added an interesting detail to the piece. In the loop at the top I have attached a Lapis Lazuli pear drop and surrounded the point of the bead with more copper beads, each one wrapped with a birds nest setting. The copper wire has been hammered to add strength and detail, I have then added a textured finish to the wire. I have oxidised this piece, not only to compliment the Lapis stones but also to really highlight the coiled and wrapped wire detail as well as the hammered finish. These hair barrettes can be worn in the hair or as shawl/scarf pins. The double spiral barrette measures 3 3/4 across and 2 1/2 tall, with a curve of 1/2", the pin is 4 1/4 long. Thanks for looking :)
