Extra Chunky Fibula Brooch in Aluminum

£38.00 GBP

A simple, endless circle inspired by archeological finds.

  • This penannular brooch is based on Pictish designs discovered in Aberdeenshire
  • Cold-forged in lightweight aluminium
  • A bigger, bolder version of my regular aluminium brooch for chunky knits
  • Perfect extra bulky knits
  • Lightweight enough that it will not weigh down the fabric of your scarf, or shawl
  • Hammer-finished, the small facets giving the piece an ancient, earthy feel
  • The circle portion of the pin is about 2 inches or 5cm in diameter
  • Perfect for hand knit bulky scarves and cardigans

All my jewellery is made by hand by my partner Mike and myself in a converted 18th century naval school on the wild North coast of Scotland. All pieces come gift wrapped.
