This little clip is an 100% handmade hair clip (can also be made as a brooch) inspired by the lily pad leaf of the Nymphaea (Water Lily) plant. Created with a free motion embroidery technique where I use my sewing machine as a drawing tool and "draw" the lily pad onto fabric like using paper and pencil.

The fabric is a bright apple green silk dupioni with teal embroidery. The leaf is securely sewn and glued onto an alligator clip for easy placement in your hair. I use a special technique so that this barrette will not snag or tear at your hair.

The lily pad is about 3" in diameter (7.6 cm), however I can make it a bit larger or smaller if you like- just ask! After experimenting a bit with making many different sizes of lily pads, I think this size is perfect- it is small and dainty and has lots of detail, and looks good in proportion to a person's head.

I can make this lily pad design as either a hair clip or a brooch, please let me know your preference in the 'note to seller' upon purchase.

All edges of fabric are treated with Dritz Fray-Check, to prevent fraying. I use the best materials and construction methods- this is a mini piece of fiber art!

This piece is made to order- it will be ready to ship in 1-2 weeks. As these hair pins are hand made, each one will be a little bit different, but very similar to the pictures here.

U.S. orders ship via First Class Mail with insurance. All international orders are sent with First Class Mail.
