Wrapped Handmade Sterling Silver Wire Penannular Brooch Shawl Pin Fibula
A circlet in heavy gauge solid sterling silver wire wrapped in a finer gauge sterling silver, gold, rose gold, or copper wire to create a simple and lovely shawl or sweater closure. This brooch is larger in size to accommodate heavier fabrics. Whether your garment was handmade or store bought this pin will make a lovely accessory.
Celtic brooches have been used as far back as the Iron Age. I became fascinated with them and started making them after seeing a photo of the Tara Brooch. This design is an ancient one, called a penannular brooch. Today there is an endless number of designs based on this style of brooch.
I like using silver for my shawl pins because it will go with almost any color of fabric, and it's less expensive than gold for those watching their budget. The pin is available with a gold, rose gold or copper accent wire if desired.
My metalwork is of my own design and I fabricate all my pieces from raw materials by hand in my studio. Almost any design can be recreated for you with other stones or precious metals, a change in necklace length, or can be the basis of a custom design. Most of my designs have elements made from scrap silver recovered from other projects such as beading, wire accents and small leaves. Your purchase will arrive in its own gift box and gift wrap is available.
