Zirocote - (Cordia dodecandra - Africa) Ziricote is quite striking in appearance often with “spider-web” or landscape figuring in shades of greys and olive greens with black. Increasingly used in high end guitars and sound equipment. Expensive! Photo is example of wood barrette in a specific wood type. Each is individually handmade and may have some slight variations in appearance.

These Barrettes are built to a very high standard for a lifetime of wear and 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.
We've been making wooden barrettes for over 20 years. Our 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. Glue joints on barrettes will eventually fail over time. These will not.
We are a zero waste shop: furniture cutoffs become jewelry boxes, jewelry box cut offs become hair pins and barrettes and the smallest pieces become jewelry. We've even had our sawdust used in kiln firings. Silver scrap is recycled too.
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!
Barrette clips vary quite a bit in quality. We use only the highest quality French Barrette Clips on all my barrettes. They have proven themselves over time to be the best available.
