The fabric is an earthy olive 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 hair clip or a brooch, please specify your choice 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 3-5 days. As this item is hand made, each one I make will be a little bit different, but very similar to the pictures here. If you want any customizations done to this design, just let me know.
U.S. orders ship via First Class Mail with insurance. All international orders are sent with First Class Mail.
