Pink Ivory- (Rhamnus zeyheri - South Africa) No, not the tusk from a pink elephant, but a beautiful wood from Mozambique. Pink Ivory, with its pale to hot pink coloring and lovely grain figure, is extremely rare and very difficult to find. Called "the royal wood of the Zulus" because of its importance in local customs. Expensive!
**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.
