Put a message on the back of your head with handmade hipster style with a custom text message hair barrette! Looking for the perfect custom gift for your mom, wife, best friend, bridesmaid, partner, sister, or something fun for yourself to keep the hair out of your face?

Some ideas: 

"GET ME A TACO / NOW PLEASE"
"WHATEVER"
"WORLD'S BEST BRIDESMAID" or "MOM" etc.
Your name
TACO TUESDAY
a favorite quote
JUST MARRIED

These clips make great gifts for anyone with long hair as a nice practical but personal alternative to jewelry. They are also perfect if you need to send a snarky message to the world in the least confrontational way possible ;).

How It's Made
I make these barrettes in my home studio with simple tools, including stamps, a hammer, a vice, a sharp knife, rivets, dyes and paints. Embossed patterns are either hand tooled or created by pressing various textures and found objects, such as plants and lace, into wet undyed leather, or for message barrettes, letter stamps. After dying/painting, the leather is sealed so the colors will not fade or transfer to your clothes or hands. The leather used for this design was upcycled from scraps of other crafters.

The clips themselves are large, high quality, sturdy French-style metal barrette clips with tension bar. The leather is very securely attached to the clip with metal rivets that will not come off without significant effort/power tools. I offer a standard "large" and "extra large" size.
