This elegant barrette is hand sculpted in beautiful Cocobolo Rosewood, known for its striking grain patterns and rich colors. Cocobolo is considered by some to be the most attractive of all the exotic woods and its one of our favorites. A genuine Baltic Amber gemstone in a simple, elegant sterling silver setting completes this original design.
This combination of Cocobolo and Amber is one we keep coming back to in our hair jewelry because they compliment each other so nicely!
Medium approx. 3" size of clip: 70mm / 2 3/4" Good barrette to pull back a section of normal thickness hair or all of fine hair.
Our barrettes are gallery quality. We use AAA premium materials: the world's finest sustainably sourced exotic and domestic hardwoods, precious metals and gem grade gemstones. Each piece is lovingly hand crafted one at a time in our northern Michigan studio.
Cocobolo Rosewood- (Central & South America) Variegated purple to red mixed with brown and black markings. A beautiful rosewood. One of our favorites!
**All barrettes are new and unworn - photos are taken on a mannequin with a wig**
We've been making wood barrettes for over 20 years. Our wooden barrettes are all made from SOLID wood. **Never a thin layer of veneer over a cheaper base wood**
They are screwed not glued to the made in France clips for a strong, durable, mess free joint.
Barrette clips vary quite a bit in quality. I use only the highest quality French Barrette Clips on all my barrettes. They have proven themselves over time to be the best available.
