Penannular Shawl Pin - Love Knot/Sterling & Copper
Oxidized sterling silver and copper. Are you familiar with Penannular Shawl Pins? If not, you should know they are the absolute best design to use with adorning shawls, cardigans and wraps. Designed in medieval times (coincidentally the exact same time period that my chainmaille jewellery technique hails from), they are a “twist & lock” type of closure. Once they are affixed to your knitted garment, they will not come off. You will NEVER, ever lose the pin because it is permanently attached to the circular piece of the shawl pin and cannot be removed.
All penannular shawl pins are handmade one by one in Lisa’s studio. This particular one is hand wrought oxidized sterling silver with copper love knot twisted ring end pieces. Each pin is hand formed with individual copper jump rings made, then built in the love knot pattern and soldered on to the ends of the circular pin shape. Love Knot Shawl Pins are also made in oxidized sterling with either sterling, brass or copper Love Knot ends.
You will receive the exact shawl pin featured above. The dimensions are; outside diameter of widest section of circular shape is just over 1.25″, the outside diameter from Love Knot opening to centre back is 1.25″ and the oxidized sterling silver pin length, from base of coil to tapered tip is 1.5″ long. It weighs 15.4 grams.
This pin can be used on all lace & fingering weight garments and is shown on Across the Waters Cowlette using Riverside Studio‘s Superwash Merino Nylon Sock 3 ply yarn in Moroccan Spice and The Fibre Co.’s Cumbria Yarn in the Catbells colour way.
