This single-piece, one-of-a-kind shawl or scarf pin is based on the pennanular brooch of the ancient Celts, with a more modern aesthetic. The irregular twist of the wrapped wire lends this piece a bit of fun and whimsy, which is accentuated by a lead-safe pewter butterfly dangle, and it helps to hold the pin securely in place.
Argentium Sterling Silver filled wire has been hand shaped and wrapped to form the body of this this fun yet practical piece. Argentium Stering Silver does not tarnish as readily as standard sterling silver, and has, in my opinion a much more lustrous shine. The pin portion is attached by a simple double loop and is blunt, which means no accidental stabbings when putting it on or while wearing it. This also makes it ideal for wearing with a favorite knitted or crocheted shawl or scarf.
Bring a little whimsy to that bundled up winter look with this charming Twisted Butterfly! A perfect gift for the young and the young-at-heart!
