Extra Large (80mm) Thick Handmade Sterling Silver Barrette cut from heavy sterling silver sheet, patterned, shaped and finished by hand. One is sure to appreciate the quality and a sense of luxury this barrette will impart --- It is a treasured piece of jewelry, rather than a thin metal barrette commonly found in a typical mall shop!

The barrette shown in the listing features an original, simple and modern design (reminds me of a snowy winter day, hence the name Vertical Storm). This is a piece that can easily be worn daily. Makes a great gift for yourself or a special friend. :) Buyer may also select from any pattern shown in Photo 3 or a custom design (see below for details).

Silver bar is attached by soldered sterling posts to an 80mm stainless steel french barrette mechanism made in France. Listing is for ONE single 80 mm barrette in a brushed satin finish (other finishes upon request, see below). Sterling bar is slightly larger to cover the entire mechanism. Please note that the length refers to the top of the barrette mechanism, not the clipping length.

Barrettes also available in copper or brass and in 50mm, 60mm, 70mm and 100mm sizes. If the size, metal, or pattern you are looking for is not listed, please contact the shop for a custom listing. 2nd photo shows the available patterns. 3rd photo shows barrettes in silver, copper and brass. 4th photo gives an idea of the depths of the barrette mechanisms (100mm not shown).

Barrette ratings are as follows and sizes refer to top of barrette mechanism, not clipping space:

50mm Suitable for pulling up the sides of one’s hair. 1-3 in Photo 3; Photo 5, right
60mm Suitable for very fine hair. 4 and 5 in Photo 3; Photo 5, 2nd from right
