Bird's-eye Maple (Acer saccharum)
Of all the "exotic" domestic hardwoods, bird's-eye maple is among the most highly prized, for it's distinctive clusters of "bird's eyes" - those shimmering little bubbles of convoluted grain, often accompanied by satiny swirling grain or quilted figure. Few woods in the world are as dramatic, unique or sought after.
Many states in the Northeastern and North Central U.S. produce bird's-eye maple, but the best, finest textured wood comes from right here, in pristine Northern Michigan, where the climate and the soil provide ideal growing conditions for this rare and valuable timber! Photo is example of wood barrette in a specific wood type. Each wooden barrette is individually handmade and may have some slight variations in appearance.
