The brooch in the center of the barrette is from my private stash. I collect vintage jewelry and hold onto it until the right design idea comes along for me to re-purpose it into something new and wonderful. This is a real antique Art Nouveau period brooch with a C clasp. I don't know how old it is, but likely dates around 1900 since that is about when the old style of C clasps were still being used. It is a golden brass color, with some darker patina from the age of the piece, but still in nice condition (just not super shiny like a new piece would be). It is three dimensional in nature with beautiful fine detail in the pierced metal design of flowers.
I used two square brass filigree components with the center brooch component, to make this a wider piece that would work on a larger hair barrette. Faceted black pyrite stones with gold reflections dangle from the bottom of the brooch as an accent.
