FINALLY! A girls’ hair barrette that won’t disappear! The Double-Face Double-Snap Barrette by GaBBY! Invented by a seven year-old and her Mom! And I can say from personal experiences that these barrettes are the truth! When I first saw adorable Gabby on Black Biz Scope, I knew I was going to buy whatever she was selling because I wanted to support. But if you’re as tired as I was with replacing barrettes, then this is your one stop solution to doing just that.

Gabrielle began creating jewelry at the age of 7 after watching an instructional video on YouTube. She originally sold her designs to friends and family, but after launching her business, expanded her platform to sell at local seminars and workshops. In June of 2011, she launched her online store, due to high demand, and has become a highly sought-after guest inside and outside the DC metropolitan area, traveling to sell her products.
The jewelry features elegant necklaces, bracelets, and earrings designed and hand-crafted by Gabrielle, and are comprised of precious and semi-precious gemstones, Swarovski elements, and cultured pearls. The flagship collection, “Mommy and Me”, consists of matching jewelry sets for mothers and daughters.
