    Default How do I make a barrette?

    I was asked to make a woman's barrette out of sterling and engrave it, and I am not sure what the back side of a barrette looks like. Heck, I hardly know what the front side looks like, and all the girls I know quit wearing them when they left grade school, so not much help there. Any advice or pictures of a handmade job would be nice before I have to start hanging out in the womens section of the Penny's store and risk getting thrown in the loony bin. I've got a few little ones, but they look like a pain to duplicate. What's a good size for a smaller ranch girl. 3, 4 inches across perhaps? Anyway, a bit of advice could sure steer me in the right direction, and I certainly would be thankful. Yeah, yeah, I know its not a 1911, but I am sure one of you might know a thing or two about this. Thanks everyone and I hope your weekend was good, Seth
