Item details



Paua, Abalone, Seashell, Plated wire, Silicone glue, Base metal clip

Here's sample photos of a handmade barrette product that I custom make to your order.
I have small, medium, and large size pieces, and can use silver, gold or copper wire (request twisted wire in convo) or no wire at all. The first barrette shown is the XL size pieces.
Small=dime size
Medium=quarter size
Large=Fifty cent piece
These are sturdy and securely glued, and so are a bit heavy and might not be appropriate for baby fine hair. However I can make smaller side clips, just send me a message with your custom request.
The Paua shell is ethically sourced from New Zealand and shows a beautiful range of colors including purple, pink, aqua, teal, cobalt and green.
Your custom requests are always welcome! I can also make hair sticks, earrings, pendants, rings and other items from the paua shell. Please inquire!
Thank you for shopping here! Aloha!
