I have a problem...
I have just recieved an amazing hair barrette and I love it so much! However, unfortunately, the barette broke  Cry The little piece hanging off that makes it click shut fell off. I am heart broken. Is there any way to fix the barette, or better yet transfer the ornament part to a sturdier barette base? The decorations on the barette are wrapped and glued onto the base (not including the piece that fell off) and it would be impossible to remove them and rearrange them on a different barette base. I'm thinking about just glueing the barrette base to another base, but I am not sure if it would make it too heavy (it is quite elaborate). If this could work, would anyone reccomend a certain glue that would stick, or a type of barrette that is sturdy and durable and can hold up some weight? Any other ideas will be greatly appreciated as well. Thank you so much for your help!

I would suggest using E6000 to attach it to a plain barrette base. Good luck!
