Sterling Silver and Lampwork Shawl Pin
My large pins are wonderful during this season. This is made to hold a woolen shawl in place. It can also be a sweater pin or even look really good on a felt or crocheted hat. The Sterling Silver wire is just the right tension and the curve is to accommodate the thickness of a knit. The pin has to be manipulated from the point end because if you simply try to open or close it in the same way you might with a safety pin, the bead will get in the way! It is so much more enjoyable in the hand than in a picture.
