These Shawl Ring and Pin Holders are commission pieces for an artist friend who fabricates the most beautiful scarves and shawls. It is an honor to play a small part in her artistic and business journey.
Shawl Ring and Pin Holders are a great accent piece for a special garment or hair design accessory. The pins and rings are gorgeous examples of common wood species and exotic woods. They include Ambrosia Maple, Maple Burl, Oak Burl, Ebony, Cherry and Walnut. The Shawl Pin may be used alone as a stick pin or as a set with the ring for a special sweater of scarf. Use it to accent a wonderful knit, crochet scarf or wrap. The ring sizes are 2 1/8 inches outside diameter with 1 1/2 inside diameter. The pins are 4 inches long.
Just a little about these special woods. Ambrosia Maple gets its colorful marks when the Ambrosia Beetle infests a tree. In the process of eating the tree fibers these insects create colorful earth tone streaks that are highly sought after by wood artists. A burl is that round bump that you may notice on a tree trunk. It is not a tumor or a disease. It is a growth that the tree uses to protect itself from insects or storm damage.
Shawl Clasp – Hair Pin is also a great gift item for that special friend who appreciates handmade jewelry items. Do you have a friend with a beautiful shawl that is always falling off her shoulder that drives you nuts? Problem solved for both of you. A win-win situation.
