Years ago my Mom made me a few sterling silver barrettes and I have worn them off and on throughout the years depending on my hair length. Lately I've worn one almost daily to keep my hair out of my work and my eyes. After receiving many compliments and requests for barrettes I decided to make a few similar to the ones that my Mom made. The longer one is like the one that I wear, I've always been drawn to the southwest and love conchos. My stamp set lets me create many diverse designs on the silver. I spent most of today making concho earrings actually.
