Hair Barrette or Shawl pin »
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Traditional, Funky, Whimsical
I have developed this variation of my hair barrette from my Lyre Echoes necklace design, by taking the shape of the frame and enlarging it. Made with heavy gauge copper wire, I have shaped the wire by hand and then hammered it, to flatten the copper and form the curve in the frame, this also hardened the wire. I have then embellished the frame with Aventurine, Lapis Lazuli and Amethyst and copper beads of graduating sizes and wrapped the beads so that they are securely held in place. This can be worn as a hair barrette or shawl/scarf pin. It measures 2 1/2" long and 1 1/3" wide with a 1/3" curve and the pin is 3 1/2" long.Is this your project? Tell us more!
