Rosette Barrettes

Rosette Barrette with Holly leaves and glass pearl

A new leaf design. This is Holly but with more stitches it can be an oak leaf as well. The Rosette is 6-petal with all picots and one large glass pearl in the center that is held by Sterling bead caps. The Leaves are attached to pale silver 1/2″ ribbon and embellished with pale green glass pearls and matching seed beads. Set on a 3″ metal barrette, this traveled to the Blue Heron for display and sale.

Rosette Barrette in Gold and Green

Rich gold and leaf green cordonnet was used to shuttle tat the Rosette and leaves of this 3″ barrette. The 5-petal rosette sits like a cup with a sparkling edge of gold glass seed beads. The center is an ivory glass pearl. The two leaves are beaded down the vein with a dark green bead. The lace is sewn to a 1/2″ black satin ribbon which is then securely attached to the metal barrette.

I made this particular barrette for a fellow artist at The Blue Heron Art Gallery where I am a member. She has the most fantastic deep red hair that goes all the way down her back and a lovely warm complexion. With her in mind, I created this. The rosette is six petal with long picots and royal green beads tatted around the outer edge. Pale blue beads with copper lining surround the inner edge and bright green beads with copper are tatted into the interior rings. The center is deep gold with a large ivory colored glass pearl. The two leaves are a medium leaf green with the same bright green beads down the center vein.

Ecru colored rosette with two olive colored leaves on a 3″barrette. This 6 petal rosette is shuttle tatted with cream colored seed beads. Bronze pearls are sewn around a large ivory pearl center. The leaves are embellished with matching shiny seed beads.
