Amboyna Burl - (Pterocarpus indicus - Laos) Made famous by Art Deco masters and so highly prized, it's often sold by the once, Amboyna burl is one of the rarest, most expensive and difficult to obtain burl woods in the world! An absolutely stunning burl!
I've been making wood hair barrettes for over 20 years. My barrettes are all made from SOLID wood and built to last.
**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.
I individually handcraft all my hair barrettes using only premium materials - the highest quality made in France hair clips (much stronger and more durable than the cheaper flimsy counterparts) and the finest rare exotic and figured domestic hardwoods in the world! With a wide range of available sizes, there are wooden hair clips and wood barrettes here to fit the needs of all hair types. For children's hair or fine hair, for holding back only section of your hair, or for lots and lots of extra-thick hair, there's sure to be a barrette and hair clip style here for everyone! Also, check out the new self-adjusting ponytail style hair clips that will hold all your hair in a ponytail with out flattening it at all!
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.
Blue Heron Jewelry and woodwork studios is a marriage of my two loves - sticks and stones (i.e. figured domestic and exotic hardwoods and fine gemstones). I began my jewelry career creating unique wood jewelry boxes, jeweled hair sticks, combs and barrettes. Soon, customers began asking for matching and coordinating jewelry designs and the jewelry end of the business was born. I have over 20 years experience in the fields of woodworking and jewelry design. My work has been featured in local and national print, movie and Television media and is private collections world wide.
