RECENT CUSTOMER COMMENTS: "Expensive for a hair clip but worth every penny!" "I love this! Thank you so much. The barrette is beautiful and really well made - all the details are perfect. Great." "Do you sign and date the backs of these barrettes? You really should. They are works of art. If you don't, I'll ask you to with mine, they are georgous!"
Shown below are sample photos of many of the woods I use in making my barrettes. Pleases note that all photos are examples only and that every piece of wood is going to look a bit different. Colors, grain & pattern will vary greatly. These photos are for general information only.

REDHEART
A dense fine textured hardwood from Central America with a beautiful red heartwood color. As with many red colored woods such as Padauk and Bloodwood, Redheart will oxidize to a brown color if not protected by a UV blocking finish. Redheart is a difficult lumber to dry but when cured properly it makes beautiful furniture.
CAMPHOR
This rare burl is from S.E. Asia and is seldom seen on the world market. It is fine-grained and varies in color from a light reddish-brown to almost scarlet. It is easy to work and has a very pungent, spicy scent. For a burl it is remarkably stable.
REDWOOD BURL
Western United States, California. Redwood is a fairly soft wood, so I only use stabilized pieces for my barrettes.The burl of the redwood is especially attractive with reddish brown swirls, curls and knots. Also used in turnery, bowls, carvings, fittings, and fine furniture.
BUCKEYE BURL
Central United States from Alabama to Pennsylvania, originally imported from Germany.The tree isn't much to look at, small to medium sized, resembling a horse chestnut, with smelly twigs and flowers, and for the most part the wood is soft. But the wood has rippled, wavy figures, and the burl is magnificent when stabilized.
GABON EBONY


From Central West Africa. The benchmark for black in lumber. It has been treasured through the ages from statues found in Egyptian tombs to the fret boards on violins.One of the purest black woods Very dense tight grained wood  Very expensive!
AMBOYNA BURL
One of the rarest, most exotic and most expensive burls of the world, so highly prized it is often sold by the ounce. This is the burl found on the dashboard of the Mercedes Mai Bock. The color ranges mostly in the reddish brown range but can swing into gold. Amboyna burls are found on Narra and Paduak trees in South East Asia.This treasure was once horded by Chinese Emperors and never permitted for commoners
RED MALLEE BURL
A brilliant red burl from Australia. Beautiful, rare and quite expensive.  This species is hard to find and has striking burl figures.  Stabilized  for superior finishing, durability and color 
EAST INDIAN ROSEWOOD
An exotic wood native to the Southern India peninsula,  prized for it's use in custom pool cues, furniture, and cabinetry. The color varies from golden brown to dark purple brown, with a unique striped figure. It is hard and dense, with a coarse texture and good stability.
BLOODWOOD
An exotic wood that is sometimes referred to as cardinal wood, for its obvious beautiful deep rose color. With age it's color does darken, but not significantly so it is a great wood to use in intarsia projects. The wood is very dense, with a tight fine, mostly linear grain.
MAPLE WOOD BURL
Big Leaf maple grows in the Pacific Northwest. In this region it is fairly common, but figure mutations of curl, burl and quilt are quite rare. Only one tree out of hundreds will be figured but the figure is often exceptional. It is treasured by musical instrument makers especially for solid body electric guitars and acoustic six strings.
