Handmade Simple Spiral Shawl Pin
I have two shawl pins that I use constantly - this is one of them. This simple Spiral Swirl Shawl pin is hand forged from 1/8" diameter aluminum. The aluminum makes this gorgeous piece a lot lighter than it appears, only 4 grams!
The stick measures about 5". The usable part below the spiral is about 4" (10 cm).
This shawl pin will work with all of your knitted or crocheted projects, adding just a touch of whimsy and elegance.
If using it as a shawl pin, sometimes a gray mark may be left on the exit and entrance points of the pin on a light colored garment due to the abrasive nature of wool on aluminum. This pin works best on a knit or crocheted open weave type garment and is not intended for tightly woven cloth fabric.
