“Summer Wind” Barrette. $650. SOLD.


The summer wind brings the spirits of renewal, the pollinators who emerge from their cocoons to transform the earth. Here, Wings pays tribute to the soft and gentle power of winds and wings alike with a butterfly barrette, a way to keep this summer spirit close to one’s own. Head, body, and wings are all of a piece, cut freehand from sterling silver and wings hand-stamped in round orbs scattered randomly across their shimmering surface. The body is formed of a single long oval cabochon of Royston turquoise in the colors of Mother Earth herself: soft summery green, shot through with golden bronze and dark brown matrices, set into a scalloped bezel and trimmed with twisted silver. The head features a pair of tiny and intensely blue Sleeping Beauty turquoise cabochons as eyes, bezel-set beneath a pair of silver antennae cut freehand from the same sterling silver. On the back, a small French clip holds hair securely; the entire piece is polished to a mirror sheen. Barrette extends 2.25″ across at the widest point and 1-7/8″ high from highest to lowest points; the Royston cabochon is 15/16″ long by 1/4″ across at the widest point; French clip is one inch across.
