This is a penannular brooch, a design that dates back two thousand years. It is used with knitted garments and cloaks to fasten them at the neck. I make each one in my smithy, heating in the forge to 1800 degrees F and then working with the hammer and anvil, the same way these have always been made.

Dimensions:
ring-- 3 inches in diameter
needle-- 4.5 inches long
Thickness is approx. 1/4" at the thickest parts.

Directions for fastening:
"The pin is pushed through folds of the cloth, which are then pulled back inside the ring; the free end of the pin passes through the gap in the ring. The pin is then rotated around the ring by 90 degrees or so, so that as long as the pin is held down by slight pressure it cannot escape over the terminals, and the fastening is secure." source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celtic_brooch



Reviews:

"Its beautiful the craftsmanship is amazing.I don't know how you but its great I would recommend this for anyone looking for a old time Celtic brooch look no further this is the one you want. I definitely will be ordering from again. "

"I love this brooch. I. LOVE. This. Brooch. It's very well made, heavy - a great utility piece that can hold a lot of weight. Since the pin is larger, I would not use it on fine fabrics or tightly knit/woven material as it may rip- but is *perfect* for heavy fabrics and thick over-sized knits. I have a celtic shawl I was looking for a brooch for, and this is exactly what I needed. I've been wearing it since I opened it this afternoon and am so happy. On top of the uitlity factor and its sturdyness, it id also simply beautiful - which is always a plus."

"Very nice. It is perfect"
