I hand carve this barrette from Wenge wood. I then add a stunning gem grade rainbow moonstone cabochon in a elegant hand-made sterling silver setting. The moonstone cabochons sits a full 3/8 inch above the surface of the barrette, is easily viewable from all sides, and has outstanding color and gorgeous blue flash.
Size: 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.
Wenge- (Africa) Dark brown to Black with gray veins.
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.
**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. We use only the highest quality French Barrette Clips on all our barrettes. They have proven themselves over time to be the best available.
