Embellished Double Spiral Hair Barrette - Copper and Labradorite
Copper and Labradorite
For this variation of the double spiral hair barrette I have attached Labrodorite faceted and round beads 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 circular Labrodorite stone and surrounded the bead with more copper beads. You can see the brilliant flashes of this stone in the last picture in the sequence.
The copper wire has been hammered to add strength and detail, I have then woven the central section, which not only make the barrette very strong but adds a wonderful ornate detail.
These hair barrettes can be worn in the hair or as shawl/scarf pins.
The double spiral barrette measures 3 2/3” across and 2 1/2” tall, with a curve of 1/2", the pin is 5” long.
