Fellowship/ Lorien Leaf Leather Hair Barrette by emma-hobbit Fellowship/ Lorien Leaf Leather Hair Barrette by emma-hobbit
A moulded leather hair barrette inspired by the cloak pins the Fellowship receive in Tolkien's 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy. Made of quality 3mm vegetable tanned tooling leather. It has an ethereal, elvish beauty to it with the shimmering green of the mallorn or lorien leaf painted with silver veins. A simple hand carved wooden pin secures the barrette in place.

I am also selling these in my etsy shop: [link]

Really beautiful work! I tried to make a similar one out of polymer clay with less-than-satisfactory results... but leather is perfect :D

Thanks! I think it would work really well in polymer clay although it might be a bit brittle for a hair pin - it would probably make a better brooch though.

It was a brooch I made. I wanted it to appear like the green part was enamel, that kind of worked but the pin, in order to be sturdy, was just too bulky. Ultimately I didn't like it too well.

Thanks! It could work in short hair but I guess it depends how short you are talking.

Short, fine, not at all barrette friendly. :( Such a reasonable price too. Maybe I'll keep it in mind for my friend's birthday!
