Copper Penannular Pin


Copper Penannular Shawl Pin Scarf Pin made by using traditional metalsmith techniques.  I oxidized the copper to give it an antique look.  Worn by Celtics and Vikings during the Medieval Ages, "penannular" means "formed as an incomplete ring" and is a simple and efficient way of fastening loosely woven cloth (where the pin will not leave a permanent hole).  The brooches were worn by both men and women. The brooch measures 2" (50 mm) across and was made using 14ga copper wire. Because of the thickness of the wire, best worn on loose knit items such as a shawl, scarf, hat, boot topper or sweater. All handmade by me with love.
