New penannular brooch by Ugrik New penannular brooch by Ugrik
Cheers to everyone!

After two years I am back on the right side of the world where people drive on the right side of the road. Home - its snowy outside and according to the weather forecast its going to be about -15 C next week. Im going to miss the sun and tropics.

Thats my first finished project - viking age penannular brooch since meanwhile most of my jewelry apparently grew legs and i have no idea where they might be.

Brooch itself is roughly based on one Estonian archeological find. Stamped pattern on the sides is different from the original find and the pin is altered a bit but in ways and designes that were used about 1000 years ago.

If anyone is interested in getting something similar just send me a note and we can pick it up there. 20 euros should be fair price.

I can never for the life of me figure out how these work. like how do you get the pin through the cloth and what not. It makes me feel incredibly stupid for not being able to figure it out to.

I love this, what are the dimensions and how do I get one? Is it brass, nickel, what? - ydnarkoocob@msn.com

great work =) So one just puts the 2 pieces of cloth through the circle and pokes the needle through? How does one hook it on?

Its more like - you put needle through two pieces of cloth and then lock it with the frame part - thats why the opening is nessecary - the needle needs to go through
