Good Hair (From The Bottle)

Every day's a good hair day with artist Vawn and Mike Gray's luminous barrettes, 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.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Vawn and Mike Gray

For 20 years, Vawn and Mike Gray created and sold original lines of fine arts and crafts. But they were always haunted by the environmentally wrong processes and materials that were involved with it?Aerosol spray cans, toxic glazes, energy sucking kilns, miles of bubble wrap and mountains of Styrofoam peanuts.

In the Summer of 2007, while watching a world wide broadcast of the "Live Earth" concert, they were inspired to change their ways. On that weekend they launched Reborn Glass: Artful reminders To Conserve. Through diligent trial and error they developed a process to create kiln-formed fused recycled bottle glass pieces. The kiln they use is a super energy efficient, computer-controlled fusing oven, not at all like the energy-sucking kilns of the past. The relationship between the glass colors and our natural resources sparked even more inspiration for their projects. collection

Comments about RECYCLED GLASS BARRETTES:

The clip is great! It's much bigger/longer than I imagined from the photo, but it works great with my thick and heavy hair! It's so hard to find a clip that can hold my hair, and this does it no problem :) it's gorgeous and I've gotten compliments on it every time I've worn it.

Service and delivery comments:

The product was delivered quickly and arrived safely. I was disappointed to look back to write the review and see the sale price has fallen even more- I could have gotten 2 on sale now for the price of 1 just a week ago!

    I bought this for my sister-in-law. I had read other reviews and the clip is heavy. But my sil has beautiful, thick hair, and the clip works well for her. She is very environmental and loved that it is made of recycled glass. The clip was very pretty and she wore it every day after Christmas.

                              As this was a gift, I have no idea how comfortable it is to wear. I can vouch for the attractiveness, though.

                              Very beautiful. Would love to see it with green glass. Just not sure how durable/fragile it would be.

                              The circular piece is off-center. Worried about how fragile it would be. Also not sure if this is a large barrette or a small one.

                              As the creator of Reborn Glass I gotta give this product a BIG thumbs up! I have been wearing an assortment of these barrettes for the past 2 years...ironically,as we launch this concept-- I just cut of 17 inches of my ponytail for Children With Hair Loss. These pieces have been properly annealed for strength, and the circle detail is actually cut from the neck of a whiskey bottle! Keep asking for the GREEN--they have one hiding somewhere :o)

                              This one could break-not a good idea since it is worn on the head.

                              I'd be concerned with how heavy this clip would be. My daughter has fine hair and has a hard time getting clips to stay in. Something made from glass would surely be far too heavy to stay in her hair. The price is high for a hair clip, too.

                              Beautiful idea, but would be so heavy it would pull right out of your hair.

                              Beautiful, would be lovely for special occasion. Should also show the type of barette clip it is attached to. I take that into consideration before purchasing hair accessories.

                              It would be nice to see another view of the actual clip that it would be mounted to. I would never buy it due to price, but great style and recycled materials are always a plus1

                              This is very pretty and quite distinctive. I hope it will come in other colors (pink, yellow, green, purple), because I may buy a couple for my granddaughters.

                              I agree with Jayne... and I'd like to see how it fastens into the hair. Size? A bit pricey, too, but I'd probably purchase one for my daughter and daughter-in-law.

                              Love items like this. Especially because each piece will end up being unique. Would like it better with different color options. I'm betting there should be brown and green options, since those are common glass bottle colors.

                              As the creator of Reborn Glass, I am compelled to weigh in once more...I would just like to add that our barrettes were never intended for a 6 year old to wear to gymnastics class! They are 4 inches, which is a large barrette-- with a double lock French clip that supports the weight nicely. I really enjoy reading all this feedback :o)

It is hard to describe, but the glass is not as fragile as you might think. Not sharp at all. I am looking forward to seeing more products from Reborn Glass at Uncommon Goods!

                              How heavy is it? Dimensions? Sizes? Is the clip a usual cheap dimestore clip, or is it good and strong and well attached? What's to keep it from sliding down thin hair, or being too small to clip into thick hair? Love that it's both translucent and reflective. That's elegant and unusual.

                              I love this idea, I'm just worried about it's durability. I have thick hair and tend to break clips like this as I'm trying to do my hair. I wouldn't want glass shards all over the place. But if it were really durable, large enough for thick haired ladies, and maybe came in a set of two for that price--I'd be all in.

                              For a barrette, I'd be concerned about its durability.

                              I like the concept of the recyclable products, I just don't like the way that this one turned out. At first I didn't know what I was looking at, until I read about it.

                              I love the fact that it is from recycled material, and that each barette will be unique. It's sparkle would be so pretty in your hair. In California we have a "Glass Beach" and glass found there can be in many colors. It could easily be made up in different colors. My only concern would be if it would be too heavy to stay in your hair, depending on the mechanism it is formed on.

                              Could be dangerous if glass breaks.

                              it looks like a really small barrette on the back, which makes it sort of an awkward design. it's beautiful, though.

                              How big is it?? I really can't tell if it is something I would use or if it is too pricey without knowing the size. Also, how is the barrette part atteched? I've purchased pretty barrettes only to have the metal barrette part come off! It is pretty!

                              I disagree with all the people worried about breaking the glass in your hair. I think the glass would be fairly thick and even if it wasn't, who falls down and hits their head regularly? How much strength does one really need to exert to put in a hair clip? Over dramatic!

                              Like the idea. Would want to know how big it is (show it on somebody's head), how big the clip part is (how much hair fits in it?), and how heavy it is (too small a clip and the weight slides it right off the hair, too heavy and it hangs downward).

                              I need to know more. The size is more important and I guess how strongly it's made. Something glass to be worn on the head has to come with some sort of warning or assurance, no?

                              Very pretty and clever idea for a common item needed to secure hair on a daily basis--the catch, given the price will the item hold up with frequent use?

                              The idea behind this is a good one. I would worry about it breaking while putting it in my hair, I should say that I have very thick hair. I think this would better be served as a pendant or other piece of jewelry.

                              It is beautiful but once it is clipped on your head, I think all of the hair underneath the clear glass would make it less sparkly, you;d lose the depth of the glass, it would look plasticky, etc...

                              Barrettes made out of glass tend to rip out of my hair because they're heavy; I wouldn't use it in a child's hair for the same reason. Also would worry about fragility...

                              I just don't know if people would want to put pieces of glass in their hair (being as glass is breakable and putting it in your hair could lead to glass in eyes/face in case of an accident).

                              cute idea, but not sure how it would look without a picture of it in someone's hair

                              Let me know when you carry this - I'll get it for my niece.

                              This WAY too expensive given the low-end materials being used - why not price it more competitively and get it into more folks' hands?

                              Love the beauty of it, love that it's made from recycled materials.

                              Not Unique. Similar athings available everywhere for less than $5.

                              This is very pretty, but I'm afraid it would not be very practical as a glass hair ornament.

                              I like recycled glass, it's pretty, wish I didn't have fine hair.

                              needs more colors, but i like it blue too

                              I like this piece but $26 for a barrette? I can only say WOW! I have also seen something similar at local craft fairs.

                              I like the idea and if the circle is off center, that's part of being handmade. I imagine that each one will be a bit different anyway. I would like to see more colors and options. I have a fused glass baratte I bought years ago and it is has held up fine. But I haven't dropped it on a tile or concrete floor either.

                              I'm scared of glass being on my head...

                              I don't know how well this would work in hair.

                              Love this idea and the design. I have never seen glass hairclips but I would imagine with a sturdy clip base the sky would be the limit on great glass designs.

                              It's something I could easily give as a gift.

                              Thanks for you comments everyone! I'm the assistant jewelry and accessories buyer at Uncommon Goods and we've found your input so helpful already ! We've added dimensions in the copy and we've worked closely with the designer to round the edges of the glass. As with any glass, this clip could break if handled improperly but is sturdy enough to withstand most day-to-day use. Again, thanks so much for all your comments!
