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.
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.
