70mm barrettes fall more within a small to medium sized range. It is approx. 2 3/4 inches long.
I use only authentic French hair barrette bases. I hand beaded the top with Czech glass seed beads in Chalk Dark Travertine, which is a cream base with a brown swirl, then securely attached it to the base.
This 70mm barrette is made of strong, heavy gauge steel with an auto lock back. The spring and back are all one part. Barrettes are stamped 'Made In France' on the back.
