Viking style Pin or Brooch for men or women, with twisted copper, 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 faceted aqua chalcedony gemstone, in a copper bezel setting. This stone is a very pale, watery green/blue/aqua color that sparkles a bit when the light catches the flat surfaces.
*This pin was forged from heavy 10 gauge square copper that has been twisted. One copper leaf/dragon scale shape on one side, and a curled end on the other.
* Hammered to add texture on the pin. 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.
