These beaded barrettes are especially great for summertime, or all year round. The tiny dusty rose color glass seed beads are hand sewn into a beaded base, then securely sewn onto the barrette.
Use these unique dusty rose color barrettes for small amounts of hair, small side hair pull backs, and barrettes for small bangs.
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! As of right now, all of my remaining 40mm authentic French barrettes have been listed. I am looking into securing some vintage 40mm bases in the near future, but they are more expensive, and I do not know how many will be available.
