Bar Pin Ancient Granite Bead 200 BC to 300 AD By Kate Drew-Wilkinson
Maybe some of you remember these pin cards? You can see the copyright date on the back 1985. I just found them and decided to make some special little pins to sell just like this. These pins are great on a fishing or golfing hat. Super on the collar of a jacket too.They can also be worn as strange and wonderful Steam Punk earrings too if you buy a couple of them! The Granite bead is set on Sterling Silver. This ancient bead comes from Djenne in Mali, Africa.
I used to teach folks how to make this pin. Here is my article in the Lapidary Journal, years ago!
