80MM Handmade Starry Night Etched Hair Clip  - Beautiful World Collection - Made to Order in Copper or Brass
Quick Facts: Featuring an etched copper or brass plate (client's choice) with a Butterfly Sundries original design of a starry night with a mountain view, this barrette is must-have! Measuring about 3 1/2 inches long and approximately 3/4 inch wide, the etched plate is riveted onto a 80mm lead-free nickle-plated hair barrette. (The clip pictured is a sample only; yours will be made-to-order in copper or brass.) The Story: I love mountain sunsets and stargazing. On some of my favorite date nights with my sweetheart we have gone up into the hills to watch meteor showers all night long. Once we stayed long enough to enjoy the sunrise. Moments and memories like these are magical to me. I find balance in nature and harmony in silence. So much of my inspiration comes from the world around me and this cuff is an expression of my appreciation for our beautiful world. Cut from copper or brass sheet metal, filed, and cleaned, the ooak design is rendered by hand onto the surface before it is placed in the etching solution. Cleaned, painstakingly hammered into shape and work hardened by hand, it is then drilled and riveted onto a pre-fabricated 80mm french barrette mount (nickle plated and lead-free). Antiqued and polished, this hair clip has a rustic charm which will bring you joy for years to come! Copper and brass do, of course, over time develop an attractive patina. This is part of the beauty of the material. The surface does have a thin protective layer of wax to protect it, but expect the beautiful colors to develop gradually. Need a different size barrette? Make a custom order! I also have 40mm, 50mm, 60mm & 70mm barrettes in-stock and would be happy to modify this design to fit a smaller clip!
