So, does anyone have an idea where I can get "Made in France"
barrette clips suitable for making my own barrettes?
Try Rings-N-Things http://www.rings-things.com/ Type "barrette" in
their search window. They have several barrettes made in France, and
a few made in the USA, along with the ones made in Taiwan and China.
