Green & Silver Embossed Leaves Barrette and Earring Gift Set
What a perfect gift idea for a natural woman and her long hair! This shimmery green and silver barrette and earring set will make a thoughtful impression.
The coordinating handcrafted pieces are made from upcycled leather, and feature a sprig of embossed tiny leaves embossed in leather, finished in green and silver to respectfully capture the beauty and essence of nature. The light patina coordinates easily with silver tones, and the rich dark green gives a warm earthy feel.
The barrette is sturdy, designed for daily wear, yet also delicate and just dressy enough for almost any occasion. The earrings are amazingly lightweight and comfortable to wear.
Gift sets will be shipped wrapped in colored tissue paper.

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.

Sustainability statement: I am committed to using the most sustainable materials possible in my products, packaging and shipping. Leather for barrettes and earrings is all up-cycled scrap leather, sometimes referred to as "pre-consumer waste," which I source from a handbag maker, thus diverting her scraps from the waste stream, and maximizing the use of these already biodegradable hides. Packaging is made from unbleached, recycled kraft paper materials, and shipping materials are either made from recycled materials or easily recyclable, using as little new plastic as possible.
