I was inspired by the beauty of tulips when I created this design. Then to my surprise I turned it around and saw it worked well upside down too with a heart shape. Then friends and customers saw the Lyre. Some have seen a scepter in there too.
We hammered and swirled 9 gauge aluminum wire to make this unique shawl pin. Aluminum makes it much lighter than it appears. Really!
We smoothed all the edges so that it will not catch on your shawl.

The pin measures about 2 1/2-3" (6.4-7.6 cm) long and about 1 3/4-2 3/8" (4.5-6.1cm) across the widest part. The stick pin part with the spiral on top that slips through the main lily design to secure the pin is about 3 3/4 - 4" (9.6 - 10.2cm) long.

You can gently bend the outer edges of the main piece to create a looser or tighter fit with the pin.
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.

All our jewelry comes wrapped in colorful tissue paper, in a nice gift box and tied with a bow ready for gift giving.

Aluminum does not tarnish like silver does. It may become a little duller over time. It can be washed in soapy water and shined up with a polishing cloth.

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.

Sometimes a gray mark may be left on the exit and entrance points of the pin on a light colored garment due to the abrasive nature of wool on aluminum.
