Turning Maple Barrette by Beadmask Turning Maple Barrette by Beadmask
This original leather hair slide features a fall maple leaf motif. The leaves are starting to transition from green to gold, with soft hints of orange and brown. The largest leaf measures roughly 4.5" around, and the holes are spaced about 2.75" apart. This is a nice size for half updo's, or for longer, thinner hair.

The copper spiral stick was handcrafted by my friend Shannon at Gypsy Moon Art Studio. It has a working length of about 6", and beautiful texture and patina. Two smaller leather leaves dangle from the stick from a twisted leather fringe. Each little leaf is wire wrapped with gemstones, including Baltic amber and moss agate.

My sugar maples turn colors just like this. They'll be turning soon! Beautiful work!

One in our neighborhood, too. My crabapples' are always the early turning leaves in my yard, they turn a beautiful burgundy and then they're bare--way before the autumn equinox. They're half done losing their leaves already.
