In the beginning of TNG, it was just a painted girl's hair clip.
Not quite. It was inspired by a girl's hair clip, but was never an off-the-shelf hair clip with paint on it.
Well, there would seem to be some mixed opinion on that:

But, in any event, it looks exactly like a painted banana clip, which is what it was based on (or what it actually was).

So whether it was a banana clip that somebody painted, or a piece of plastic made to look like a banana clip and then painted, we're in the same ballpark.
