This hair Barrette is made from a serving spoon handle. The 2.25" french clip finding has been riveted to the handle.
Materials used and Care Information
The silverware is good quality old silverplate sourced from auctions and estate sales.
Since the silverware spans many decades of manufacture, there is a potential for nickel content to be exposed in the cut end of the silverware. Even with a nickel sensitivity, there is very little chance that any problems would occur as this product will not be touching bare skin.
Please clean and polish using "kinder" methods of commercial silverware polish and polishing cloths. The fast acting "dips" are not recommended! When not wearing, store away from the air (perhaps in a zip lock bag).
