Hand forged, hammered bronze cloak pins.
These pins are created with heavy 10 gauge Bronze round wire.
SHARP! The pin on these is thinner 14 gauge wire, and it has been sharpened to a point. Most of my pins are designed to push between fibers in chunky knits, but I have had requests for sharper, thinner points that will pierce through blankets or felt cloaks with a smaller hole and less damage to the fabric. Please choose the style most suited to your needs.
* 2" diameter in hammered antiqued bronze. Penannular means incomplete circle, and these brooches were originally designed as a utilitarian cloak fastener during the iron age. Often known as Celtic Brooches, variations of these were also worn by the Romans, Vikings, and Scottish among others. Simple, minimalist design. Perfect for renaissance fairs or everyday wear with a casual, rustic vibe!
Hand forged in my home jewelry studio. Each one made by me from start to finish using my torch, hammers and an anvil. Antiqued bronze has a beautiful, rich color, somewhere in the middle between the rose gold of copper and the yellow gold of brass. It will continue to deepen in color as it oxidizes.
