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. Simple, minimalist design. Perfect for renaissance fairs or everyday wear with a casual, rustic vibe!
Hand forged in my home jewelry studio with hammers on an anvil using upcycled copper wire. Hammered on both sides, hardened and tumble polished. Shown here in bright and shiny bare copper.
These 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. 💖
