Viking style Pin or Brooch for men or women, with leaf/scale detail and gemstone.
Penannular means incomplete circle, and these brooches were originally designed as a utilitarian cloak fastener during the iron age. Often known as Celtic Brooches, worn by the Romans, Vikings, Irish, and Scottish among others.
* Perfect for renaissance fairs or everyday wear with a casual, rustic vibe!
*8 mm round deep garnet natural gemstone, in a copper bezel setting.
*This pin was forged from heavy 10 gauge copper, and two copper leaf shapes which are actually scales for scalemaille. Approx 1 3/4" to 2" diameter width.
* Hammered to add texture. Hand rubbed patina treatment to give it an old world, aged and oxidized appearance. The item you receive may vary slightly from the example pictured, as is the nature of all handmade items.
These pins are not sharp as they are not meant to pierce through fabric but rather push between the woven fibers such as with knitted or crocheted scarves, or bunch up a lightweight scarf. There are quite a few helpful videos on youtube that demonstrate how to use these.
