We designed, hammered and swirled 9 gauge aluminum wire to make this Celtic influenced 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.

This pin was featured in issue 119 of Simply Knitting!

The pin measures about 2 3/4"-3" (7.-7.6cm) long and about 1 1/4"-1 1/2" (3.2-3.8cm) across the widest part. The stick pin part with the spiral on top that slips through the main budding spiral design to secure the pin is about 4 - 4 1/4" (10.8 cm) long.

You can see this pin on Anne Hanson's "Aria Delicato" knit scarf design at :
http://knitspot.com/knitting_pattern/aria-delicato-p-397.html

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 hair pin or 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.

This design is also available in sterling silver, copper and brass.

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 grey 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.

Although we hammer the metal to give it extra rigidity and strength it is still quite bendable and malleable and may not work well for heavy hair.

It is often hard to know if a hair accessory will work well for your particular type of hair without trying it on first.We wouldn't recommend this pin for very long or heavy hair. If our pin doesn't work well for you after you purchase it just let us know and we can easily work out a refund or exchange.

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.
