Isn't this barrette darling? Not only are the colours suited for fall, but the texture is perfect for it as well. What was once a merino wool sweater has been needle-felted and reformed into a barrette, with its edges dyed a warm cinnamon and charming vintage buttons sewn on top for one of the more interesting barrettes I've seen. The felted bit has been sewn and glued onto a nickel French-back barrette clip. Interestingly, artist Liz offers lifetime repair for her jewelry pieces, and that might apply to this barrette as well. Nifty, don't you think?
The shop is Made in Lowell, the barrette is $18, and Liz's shop offers a plethora of pretty, fun, chic little treats for you, a friend, your sister...maybe even a special "treat" for that favourite neighbor when she comes by with her munchkin October 31. Liz's shop is full of beautifully drawn art cards, felt flower pins, beads, earrings, barrettes, and other jewelry in the most delicious colours, so I'm sure you'll enjoy stopping in.
