Embossed spiral waves texture imprint in black leather. A brilliant dark lapis blue with gold finish and hardware give this hair barrette a metallic yet natural look, without the heaviness of metal, bringing out the unique rustic texture. The brilliant color will stand out yet works with almost any outfit, so you can wear it for everyday use. It makes a great gift for anyone with long hair, and nature enthusiasts, and is a nice practical alternative to jewelry.

Functional beauty, quality craftsmanship
Or should I say, crafts-woman-ship? ;) I wear my own barrettes almost every day, and can also attest to their practical, functional use and durability. The clips themselves are large, high quality, sturdy French-style metal barrette clips with tension bar. The leather is very securely attached to the clip with metal rivets that will be nearly impossible to remove.
