***Falls into small to medium size category, at 2 3/4 inches long - 70 mm***
--1 black glass seed beads.
--1 transparent ruby red color glass seed beads.
--70 mm / outside base 2 3/4 inch long. Inner barrette approx. 2 1/4 inches.
--Genuine French hair barrette.
Two authentic French barrettes carefully hand beaded with Czech glass seed beads, one in black, and one in ruby red, then securely sewn to the barrette base!
These barrettes are 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.
I'm sad to say, due to international manufacturing closures caused by Covid lockdowns, many barrette sizes I make will no longer be available for me to offer once they are sold out. Many of my items are made to order, or limited edition. If you see something you like, I'd grab it, it might not be available again! I have few 70mm bases left at this time.
