Price listed is for purchase of (1) one shawl pin.
Each "Harmony Spirals" shawl pin is handmade using three separate continuous pieces of solid copper wire. One piece, twisted and coiled to form the stick pin, the other two pieces coiled to form the holding circle and its adornments. By design, all six wire ends are protected within the the centers of a spiral in keeping with a smooth, flowing and harmonious composition.
Because these pins are made freehand without a jig, the pin you receive will look similar to the original that is photographed.
A clever feature of this pin is that one of the spiral adornments is fixed and the other slides freely around the ring. You place the slider for a symmetrical or asymmetrical look as the fancy strikes you.
Can be used to pin a cherished hand knit sweater, woven shawl or crochet scarf closed against the elements.
Outer diameter of circle: a bit less than 1.75" [43mm]
Total length of stick: approx. 3-3.4" [75-85mm]
Your Made-to-order Pin may be finished either bright shiny or antiqued finish.
