We smoothed all the edges so that it will not catch on your shawl.
The pin measures about 2-2 3/8" (5-6.2cm) across and about 1 1/8- 1 1/4" (2.8-3.2cm) across the widest part. The stick pin part with the spiral on top that slips through the main design to secure the pin is about 3 1/8" (8cm) long.
It can be worn as a sweater brooch too!
This pin would work best on a knit or crocheted open weave type garment and is not intended for tightly woven cloth fabric.
This is a small sized pin and works well in your hair if you are only using it on a small amount of hair like when you pull the front pieces back like I did in the last picture.
It is often hard to know if a hair device will work well for your particular type of hair without trying it on first. If our pins don't work well for you after you purchase them just let us know and we can easily work out a refund or exchange.
All our jewelry comes wrapped in colorful tissue paper, in a nice gift box and tied with a bow ready for gift giving.

The pin in the pictures is a representative pin and not the exact same one that you will receive. We hand make each pin and try hard to make them look the same. There may be some minor differences but the one you will receive will look very similar to the one you see in the pictures.
The brass wire used in this pin is in it's natural form and not treated with a lacquer or wax. Brass naturally oxidizes over time and develops a patina. Some people love that look and some prefer to keep it shiny.
Here are some suggestions for how to shine up your brass jewelry using common household supplies like lemon juice or ketchup. The link below is for copper jewelry but the same techniques will work with brass:
