Details

The Metallic Butterfly is an exotic species of leather mask. The long-tailed, wide-winged butterfly makes a dramatic and elegant costume piece for a masquerade, themed wedding, Halloween, fantasy larp, or costume party. Whether it is being worn or hanging on the wall, it it a beautiful and unique work of art.

The Metallic Butterfly mask is meticulously hand-carved and sculpted from a single piece of leather. The sections of the elegantly curved wings are painted with several different iridescent and metallic colors (including gold, bronze, pewter, blue, pink and green). The sectioned butterfly body curls around the tip of the wearer's nose. The mask is quite flexible and lightweight, and is designed to fit most faces.

The first and last photos show the Metallic Butterfly mask being modeled by the artist (Erin Metcalf of Eirewolf Creations).

More Info

This mask design is an Eirewolf Creations original. Made in a smoke-free studio.

If you want more than one mask, I can make them to order. The Metallic Butterfly mask pictured is in stock and ready to ship. No two masks will be exactly the same, even when I create the same design; they are unique works of art!

*** SHIPPING:

U.S. buyers: If you purchase more than one leather item, I ship the additional items at no additional cost. Items will be sent via Priority Mail. The shipping estimate for the U.S. reflects the furthest shipping zones (east coast, Hawaii, and Alaska). Buyers on the west coast (near me) might expect to pay a few dollars less in some areas. I will refund the difference if the shipping cost is more than US $2.00 less than the estimate. (This shipping difference refund can only be issued if you have a verified account with Paypal. If you don't have an account with Paypal, please send me your zip code for an accurate shipping cost before purchase.)

International buyers: Item will be sent via First Class International. Priority Mail International is an option; contact me before purchase for a price quote.

Unfortunately I am not able to ship all items to all countries, depending on individual countries' customs laws. Please contact me before purchase if you have questions.

I will combine shipping for leather masks and accessories. Please contact me with a list of the items you want and your postal code, and I will reserve the items for you and adjust the shipping charge to reflect the actual cost of the combined items.

Policies

Welcome to the ArtFire shop of Eirewolf Creations! I am Erin Metcalf, the artist also known as "Eirewolf." Here you will find handmade leather masks, eye patches, and costume accessories, all designed and created by me. Thank you for visiting my shop!

I want you to be happy with your purchase. Please contact me with any questions you might have before buying, or with any problems, questions, or lavish praise you might have after receiving, my creations! :-)

If you'd like to see some of my past works, please visit my online gallery at www.EirewolfCreations.com.


PAYMENT:

I accept Paypal, credit cards, and USPS money orders. (If you are mailing a USPS money order, please send payment within 3 days and please contact me to let me know you are doing so. I may cancel the sale and relist the item if I don't hear from the buyer within that time.)

California buyers: State sales tax should be added automatically when you check out. If you're paying via money order, please add 7.5% to the total (minus shipping). Please add 8.75% (and contact me for possible hand-delivery) if you live in Santa Clara County.


SHIPPING:

I usually ship leather items within one business day (unless they are made to order).

If you are in the U.S. and you purchase more than one leather item at the same time, I ship the additional items at no additional cost. I will combine shipping on leather masks and accessories for international buyers.

I ship via USPS, First Class Mail Package for small items (like eye patches) and Priority Mail for masks within the U.S. I ship via First Class International for buyers outside the U.S. (unless Priority or Priority Mail Express International is requested and paid for). I pay for insurance myself, or personally guarantee my items.

My shipping estimates for the U.S. show the maximum (farthest distances from California); I will refund the difference if the shipping cost is more than $2.00 less than the estimate. (This shipping difference refund can only be issued if you have a verified account with Paypal, and pay via that method. If you don't have an account with Paypal, please send me your zip code and a list of desired items for an accurate shipping cost before purchase.)

I may use Signature Confirmation for items over $100.00 to make sure your purchase reaches the right hands (yours!).

If you pay with Paypal, I will ship to the address Paypal has on file for you. If that address does not match the address given here at Artfire, there may be a delay while we sort it out.

INTERNATIONAL buyers are responsible for any duties, tariffs, or VAT that may be levied by their country's customs office. If you need to know what additional fees or taxes your country may charge before deciding to purchase, please contact your post office or government tax office.

I will not declare a purchase as a gift, as I could be held criminally liable for falsifying customs forms. Insurance is NOT available to some countries including Israel, Mexico, and many African countries except via Priority Mail Express International, which costs more. In such cases the buyer assumes all risks of damage or loss (and the item will not be returnable) unless the buyer chooses to pay extra for Priority Mail Express International (and I will pay for insurance).

If you want to opt for Priority Mail Express International (or Priority Mail International), please contact me for an exact shipping charge before purchasing. Unfortunately I am not able to ship to all countries, especially items made with natural materials, because of individual countries' customs laws. (For example, I am unable to ship leather items to Italy.)

Please contact me before purchase if you have questions.


RETURN POLICY:

"What if the mask I purchased doesn't fit?"

I design my masks to fit the average adult face. Of course, not everyone has an average face, and sometimes a mask just doesn't want to cooperate. Some suggestions that might help are to gently flex the mask to widen or narrow it, and/or use pieces of sticky-back felt (which I provide) on the inside of the mask to make it sit more comfortably. If it still just won't fit...

I accept returns for a full refund if you notify me and send the item back to me (Priority Mail with delivery confirmation if in the U.S.) within 7 days after you receive it. Items must be returned unworn (except for trying on) and in the condition received. (If the item is a gift for someone else, let me know and the return period may be extended. The short time frame is to discourage costume "borrowing.")

All items besides masks and eye patches may be returned within 30 days (in the condition received) for a full refund.


ADDITIONAL INFO:

Commission inquiries are welcome! (Currently I am only considering commission requests for handmade leather masks, eye patches, and accessories similar to what you see in my shop.)

My leather items are designed to handle normal wear, but please don't wear them in a rainstorm, clean them with solvents, or immerse them in liquid, as too much moisture can damage the leather and/or dyes.

My wares are created in a smoke-free environment. They are sealed away or displayed in a protective curio cabinet in my home, until the time comes for them to journey to a new home.

I have been smitten with this artist's work since I laid eyes on it. This mask makes my little fairy heart beat fast, the intricate design, the colors, the details, the very essence of it seems magical to me.
