Description

Medium size, safety pin style closure for all your knits. For use with shawls, wraps, scarves, cardigans & cowls. Wearer can either “pierce” the knitted fabric in between the stitches, or gather the knitted fabric (i.e. for a shawl, wrap or scarf) in between the safety pin “arms”, and clip the pin closed so it surrounds all the material without piercing it. This medium size is good for any larger fingering weight shawl, wrap or scarf, but also works on larger lighter weight yarn fabrics. It’s too small for some heavier weight yarn projects, larger sized shawsl or wraps. For those larger projects made with heavier weight yarn, either the large or extra large sized Beaded Safety Pin is a better choice.

Completely hand wrought by Lisa in her Toronto Studio. Made from oxidized sterling silver, sterling Bali beads, and an assortment of three colours of crystal and/or pearl Swarovski beads. Each one is carefully handmade one at a time, and therefore uniquely beaded.  The image above is the exact Beaded Safety Pin you will receive.  This pin is beaded with Swarovski Denim BeCharmed crystal bead, Bali sterling spacer bead, Pave Set BeCharmed Ruby Crystal bead, Bali sterling spacer bead & Smoke coloured BeCharmed crystal bead. Each pin is approximately 3.25″ in length, 1.5″ wide, and any of the Swarovski crystals or pearls are about 1/2” in diameter. Pin weighs 22 grams, which is much lighter than the all precious metal Coiled Safety Pin, so can be used with lighter weight yarn projects.

The Swarovski crystals move on the safety pin, and if you grab a really generous portion of knitted fabric, you can adjust where you would like the beads to sit once it is affixed to the garment.  You can also adjust the pin arm, opening it up before affixing to your garment, or once it’s on the garment, squeezing it slightly together to have a tighter fit.

This pin is shown on a Honey Cowl knit with Songbird Fibre’s bulky weight yarn in the Catbird colourway.
