Circular Celtic Pin beautifully holds shawls and wraps in place. The clever simplicity of this design looks both ancient and modern at the same time. It will anchor both light weight silk scarves and heavy woven shawls or capes in place without damaging the fibers. This design concept is based on the historical European penannular cloak brooches from the middle ages. *Lead time varies depending on seasonal demand (please scroll down to Shipping for details.)

I forge the ring & sliding pin using heavy gauge copper and hammer, then harden the piece for several hours before applying a light vintage-verdigris patina followed with a protective beeswax rub. The brooch is sturdy with just the right amount of flex, and is not so heavy that it will weigh down or drag on your light weight scarf and shawl fabric. Each brooch is a unique piece, and the patina finish may vary slightly from the photos.

The circle measures 1-1/2” diameter and the pin-rod is slightly longer. The pin-rod is filed to a blunt point to easily slip through stitches of woven or knitted fabrics, but let me know if you want it sharpened to pierce through tight weaves such as fine pashminas. For silk and chiffon scarves, I recommend going underneath & around the fabric layers rather than piercing through the fabric.

Instructions: This is super easy to figure out and use, and instructions are included.
You simply open it by sliding the pointy end of the pin around to the small opening between the coils. Let the pin fall beneath the ring, then pass the pin through the fabric & bring it back up through the opening. To secure it in place, just slide the pin around 90 degrees to the coils. The pin rests on the top of the ring, with the fabric captured in between.

In addition to holding wraps and accessories in place, this is a wonderful way to close a knitted cardigan for you knitters who prefer not to make buttonholes.

LEAD TIME: To be shipped by mid-December
