I made this lovely shawl pin by hand. Starting with copper sheet, I hand cut, file and smooth the copper, clean it thoroughly and then fuse the enamels (finely ground glass) to the copper in several layers and in multiple torch or kiln firing sessions. The back is also enameled.
The shawl pin measures just over 1 1/2" across, is lightweight and comfortable to wear. The stick is hand forged copper and measures approximately 3 inches long and has a warm patina. You will receive the exact shawl pin pictured.
This would also make a great hair pin, donut style pendant or t-shirt tab/scrunchie!

Enameling is fusing finely ground glass to metal at appromately 1500 degrees in a kiln or torch flame.
This shawl pin will ship in a bubble envelope via US First Class mail. If you would prefer Priority Mail, please convo me.
