This pin is gorgeous! Each frond, each stone's setting is perfect and the meticulous attention to detail on every aspect of the pin is very impressive. This is something I'd happily wear as a piece of jewelled art even when I'm not knitting.

I am so excited to now learn Portuguese Knitting. Your Knitting Pin is out-of-this-WORLD! Thanks for sharing your talents.
The Art of Knitting
When I started making magnetic knitting pins seven years ago, the style of Portuguese knitting was little known in the US and options for buying attractive pins—especially magnetic ones—were extremely limited. Now, this style of knitting is picking up momentum and I'm delighted to see so many people seeking it out and enjoying the singularly delightful accoutrements that come with it.
When I began this process, mine was one of only two Etsy shops to carry Portuguese knitting pins—and the only one to carry the magnetic variety; now there are upwards of 10! Today's Portuguese style knitter has many wonderful options for every price range to choose from. Let me now tell you a little about the customers who choose my pins and what makes my pins particularly special:
My pins are formed entirely by hand from fine art quality polymer clays. I never use molds and each pin is made to order just for you. One of the most common remarks I hear from customers is that using my pins makes their time spent knitting feel more special—like when you eat on the good china or take the time to brew loose leaf tea. My pins appeal to people who enjoy ritual and giving ordinary activities a sense of occasion. My pins also appeal to collectors and jewelry lovers as they are not only totally unique and beautiful, but also of heirloom quality. If you recognize any of your own traits in this description, you would probably love to knit with one of my pins.
So take a look around. Etsy has some lovely options for you, no matter who you are. If you think you've found the right fit with my shop, then welcome! I hope to supply you with a tool you will treasure for its beauty, functionality, and joy of use.
