The Cherry Blossom Hair Barrette is a fairly large, just light enough not to slip out your hair and it holds a good amount of hair. For those lucky gals that have super thick hair it won’t hold all of your hair but it can be a great accessory for holding back a portion of it.
The Cherry Blossom design was created by Earthly Creature’s artist Cindy Cantelon, using the lost wax method to create the original design. Reproductions are made in cast fine silver pewter and hand finished by the artist. The pewter design is copper plated, on which a beautiful blue-green patina or an iridescent effect is created on the copper to finish the barrette’s look. Each piece will be unique with these special finishing techniques.
Cindy’s formal studies were in fine art, painting, drawing, photography and sculpture. She lives and works with her husband, Marshall creating art at their country home/workshop/studio on the west coast of British Columbia, just a couple hours and one ferry ride northwest of Vancouver.
Nature is Cindy’s inspiration. She has been creating her Earthly Creatures Designs for over 25 years!
They hand design and produce all their art metal work. Their designs start off as an idea, then are carved and sculpted in wax and cast in bronze using the lost wax method. They create all our jewellery and small sculpture designs. Some of the materials they used are sterling silver, gold, bronze, copper and silver pewter. The pewter we use is 100% lead-free with a touch of real silver in it. It’s the highest quality pewter one can use. The copper plating is of the finest quality.
Each one of their pewter pieces is handcrafted so no two finishes will look exactly the same. Their unique patinas are true and strong and sealed with a clear protective coating.
