***Many sizes, colors and styles in in my shop at this direct link:
MEASUREMENTS: This barrette is 2-3/4 inches long x 5/8 inches wide. The backing is 2-3/8 inches long and is the highest quality "Made in France" material. It is great for holding small portions of hair or clipping side sections back. It also works on thin or fine hair if your pulling back larger sections or possibly all of your hair.
PROCESS: I first cut 3 pieces of glass, arranged them in the kiln in the design you see and fired the pieces at a temperature which helps the glass retain a slight textural feel and keeps the glass elements crisp. I then reheated the piece on a mold to obtain a slight curve so the barrette would accommodate the backing.
