Shawl pin, scarf pin, hair slide, it can do it all.
It would also be great for adorning your up-do hair styles!
This vintage stamping has a professionally oxidized silver plating over solid brass, making it a sturdy piece.
I made the hand hammered/textured pin from sterling silver filled 18 gauge wire. It is half hard so will hold its shape but can still be adjusted to suit your needs. Being a half hard wire allowed me to use a slightly smaller wire, which will go through smaller fabric weaves that larger pins would damage. But, even at that, these pins are not meant to be used with fine weaves as it could cause damage to the fabric. It should work fine with about any knit or crochet, and many loose weave fabrics. In image 2 it is pinned on lace. :)
Stamping is 2.75" or 7cm high.
Pin is approx. 4" or 10cm.
-All components of my jewelry are made without lead and nickle.
-All sterling silver is 925, nothing less. It is also tested on a regular basis for strength.
-All rhodium/silver/gold/bronze/gunmetal plates are quality pieces.
-All of my chain (links) is soldered! (including plated chains)
-Best of all, since I am particular about my components, I love to shop for supplies and search out the highest quality for the best price, resulting in elegant and affordable handmade jewelry for you! :) .
