Genuine Made-In-France hair clasps are used on all wooded and pewter barrettes. This is a two piece clasp with the "spring" built into the unit and is the highest quality available on the market.

The wooden components of the barrettes that are made by BarretteBaron.Com are of varying dimensions. Typically, the length of the finished barrette is about 1/2 inch longer than the barrette clasp length and the width of the barrettes vary in width: 1.0 inches to 1.5 inches.

The dimensions are unique to each barrette because the wood that is obtained is unique to each species. Some wood comes in the form of burls (irregular dimensions); some wood comes in the form of branches while other species are purchased as dimensioned stock. The freeform materials give rise to immense opportunity in design and BarretteBaron.Com uses these unique qualities to their maximum... So everyone benefits.
