Handmade scarf pin which I have fashioned in the Viking style. The thick copper wire has been shaped and beaten to strengthen, with a handmade resin bead attached and worked with copper wire. The pin is then antiqued, burnished and sealed with jewellers wax. Can be used to secure scarves and shawls or just worn as an adornment.
The pin in the 3rd and 4th pic is shown for reference only.

I have always loved working with copper, especially seeing how the light changes the colours to chestnut and deep rich copper after oxidisation and buffing.
As I use my sheep’s fleece to make scarves, cowls and shawls it feels natural for me to want to make pins and brooches to adorn them.
