Lyre Echoes Hair Barrette or scarf pin

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women

What you will need

  • 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.

FoxDesigns asked:
I just love the look of the copper and Lapis, they compliment each other so well. Another great project Abby! Oh, and I checked out your website, awesome!
Abby Hook answered:
Thank you :) I love Lapis with copper too, I can't make up my mind though is I prefer it with oxidised or natural copper. Glad you like my website, I have spent a lot of time recently trying to make it more user friendly, so really appreciate the feedback :)
