Viking style Cloak Pin or Brooch for men or women, with foldform leaf detail and turquoise gemstone.
One of a kind and ready to ship. This item is also listed in my Etsy shop, so if it sells there, I can fabricate a similar one in 3-5 business days. Your item would vary slightly due to the nature of real stone and handmade items.
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 green Tibetan turquoise natural gemstone, in a copper bezel setting.
Approx 2" wide and 3" high.
*This pin was forged from heavy 10 gauge copper wire. Foldformed hammered leaf shape on one side and a hammered flat spiral design on the other.
* Hammered to add texture. Hand rubbed patina treatment to give it an old world, aged and oxidized appearance.
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.
