An authentic French barrette carefully hand beaded with square glass seed beads in a metallic gold iris color, then securely sewn to the barrette base! The color looks a little lighter online.
This barrette is great for thin hair, or to pull the sides of your hair back to secure to the middle/center of the back of your head!
Why does the 'authentic' part matter? Struggling with French 'style' barrettes often leads to things like losing the middle piece, having very sharp edges and sides, to even watching them completely fall apart after a few months, or sooner. Authentic, French barrette bases are made of strong, heavy gauge steel. The spring and back are all one part, and the backs are stamped with 'Made In France", so you know it's the real deal.
