    My first order & I am truly amazed & blessed that I happened upon your site. The quality & beauty of these barettes - from design to production, is exemplary. Thank you.

    Both sizes work well!

    I have this Crane Barrette in both sizes, first the small to wear up higher since my hair is both fine & thin, and more recently the large to wear with all my hair gathered back in a low ponytail. The large persisted in gradually sliding down my silky hair, though, until I thought to wrap a clear polyband type of elastic around my hair first. That did the trick and it has held securely all day which is a relief because I hated having to return such a beautiful hair accessory of a quality matching all the fine products at Oberon Design. I've yet to be disappointed in any of them from my first purchase of a cover for my Kindle Paperwhite years ago. Thanks, Oberon Design!

    Thrilled but not surprised

    This has been my favorite barrette for some years. A few weeks ago the clip failed but was irreparable. Oberon said they’d like to send me a replacement. Of course I was thrilled. It arrived today and it was like finding an old friend. I own a shoulder bag, a messenger bag, two checkbooks, a journal, a wallet, card holder, three iPad covers and several iPhone covers. But I don’t think that had anything to do with the Crane barrette replacement. I think the Oberon artists are proud of their creations and stand steadfastly behind them. Thank you to all of the fine artisans at Oberon!

    When I opened my crane barrette, I just gasped. It is even more beautiful than the picture. Solid, strong, holds up my messy buns!

    I keep coming back

    I have 2 other hair clips, the dogwood and the art deco swirly one. This time, I bought 3 of the same thing so my mom doesn't steal my hair clip, and I have a gift for a teacher at the end of the year. They're really beautiful, durable, and unique. I love all of them!

    The design and crafting of the Crane Garrett took my breath away. I have already received many compiments. I am always happy to say it is Oberon Design. The packaging, small charm and easy way to place an order is terrific. That is why I always come back. Thank you for all of your creative and hard work.

    nice design

    I love Oberon hair barrette clips. I have been collecting them for about 6 years. The Large crane clip is beautiful . I noticed that the Britannia metal is not as heavy on this clip and that may be due to the design. Very light on the hair. Looks lovely when wearing it on an evening out .

    Loving it!

    I have several of the barrette's from Oberon and they never disappoint. I have thick hair and these barrette's never slide out and never loose shape. I can put my hair up and wear this all day without worrying it will come out. Thank you!
