MIDNIGHT - Gold leaf Butterfly Headband
This one was actually inspired by a Victorian style ornament that I own - gold butterflies under a cloche. I was tempted to take the thing apart and use it but then realized that I could make my own!
I wanted to make a butterfly piece but with a glamourous evening look to it - and I adore gold leaf! Often ideas start because I need something for a party myself!
I distressed the gold leaf so that it would have a two tone look.
The butterflies bob about gently as you move in it and looks really enchanting.
Its all set on a comfortable metal headband covered in a grosgrain ribbon. The backs are painted black, like shadows.
I have another listing for one in silver leaf - and I have seen sheets of copper leaf too which I think would look amazing, let me know if you would prefer that.
Also, I paint the butterflies first so could also do green underneath copper for a verdigris look or red under gold would be really great too.
Price is the same for different color schemes.
Be yourself - be unique!
