Hair combs and ornaments have been found in archaeological sites in Israel dating from as early as 12,000 years ago, made from shell, bone, and wood.
Fashioned from hardwoods by Etz-Ron, these barrettes are emblazoned with designs patterned after those found on pottery of the Canaanite, Egyptian and Philistine peoples from before the period of the exodus through the period of the Israelite kings. Typical motifs found on the pottery were fish and birds looking back (Philistine), birds and palm, ibex and palm (Canaanite) and geometric patterns.
Many of the barrettes show patterns taken from pottery found in the excavations at Megiddo and Lachish in Israel.
The barrettes are made from a variety of light colored hard woods such as maple, beech, cherry and more. The metal barrette fastening on the back side is screwed into the wood.
