Every day's a good hair day with artist Vawn and Mike Gray's luminous barrette, hand-fused from crushed recycled glass. Gleaming with texture and color, the soft glow of the mosaic comes alive under light, beautifying more than your ensemble--each piece resourcefully transforms glass bottles rescued before reaching the landfill into a wearable work of art. Handmade in Florida.

Unhappy with the processes and materials involved with making glass—Aerosol spray cans, toxic glazes, energy sucking kilns, miles of bubble wrap, and mountains of Styrofoam peanuts—Vawn and Mike Gray developed a process to create kiln-formed, fused, recycled bottle glass pieces. The kiln they use in their Cape Coral, Florida studio is a super energy efficient, computer-controlled fusing oven, turning out the colorful handmade pieces that become functional little works of art for your wall.

Very pretty barrette

Comments about Multicolored Recycled Glass Barrette:

I have purchased this as a gift for my niece. She has thick hair like her Mom & I think, despite the heaviness, she'll be able to wear it & enjoy it. Like previous reviews, it's a bit heavy, but it's very nice & well-made.

Pretty but soo heavy

By 

from Arlington, TX

Verified Buyer

Comments about Multicolored Recycled Glass Barrette:

I wouldn't call this a barrette; more like a hair clip to be worn in the back of the hair instead of the front. Not what I expected.

Beautiful Barrette

By 

from Newton, KS

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Multicolored Recycled Glass Barrette:

I'm so glad my sister bought one of these beautiful barrettes for me for Christmas. I love it. Because my hair is fine and slippery, I wear it in the back above a braid--that way it stays in place and is not heavy at all. Also, it had a lovely assortment of colors in it.

          Disappointed

          By

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about Multicolored Recycled Glass Barrette:

          Unfortunately I returned the product, it looked nothing like the picture. I understand these are hand made however this one I received was not attractive. Some of the glass was not even on the barrette, but there was an empty spot and then the glass was hanging off. It was not appropriate to give as a gift.

          • all the time

          Comments about Multicolored Recycled Glass Barrette:

          I am very pleased with this piece. I wasn't sure what to expect after reading it might be a little heavy and not colorful enough. The one I received did not fit any of those remarks. It is beautiful, stunning and a conversation piece for sure. Also, my hair is fine but have a "medium" amount of it. In other words, my hair is not "thin".

            I bought the clip for a gift and it is stunning; however, due to its weight, I'm not sure if my sister-in-law will be able to use it.
