…..Honestly! get your minds out of the gutter. Ordinarily I keep my jewelry life separate from my knitting life. I always feel a little weird about self promotion. Today I’m going to show off a little with my new concept for a shawl pin. Most shawl pins are either the stick type that weave in and out or the circle style with a pin that pulls up the fabric and goes through.
I came up with an idea for a round pin that screws in. I made a prototype in copper and then did the finished piece in sterling silver. I added a few granulations in the center to make it a little interesting. Here I am modeling it in my lovely blue bathroom. It really holds very securely and well…..I think it looks pretty sweet.
Hope to have a couple of these in my Etsy store soon.
Better hit the hay…back to work tomorrow. One of these days I’ll get that Moebius Cowl started!
BTW…I’m on Ravelry now, look for me Larjmarj!
