Handmade Shawl Pin
This Handmade Shawl Pin and ring set will add the perfect finishing touches for your knit scarf or crochet shawl. Great fashion accessory and accent piece for your special garment. Maple and Maple Burl Wood bring out the dramatic color and grain in the wood. This Pin is handmade and can be worn alone or with the Ring. It will also make a beautiful hair accessory.
The pin is turned on a lathe. A block of wood revolves at high speed and a handheld tool begins to peel away layers of wood as the pin begins to take shape. This is know as spindle turning and is the same process to make stair balusters.
The ring size is 2 1/4 inches outside diameter with 1 1/2 inch inside diameter. The pin is 5 inches long.
I polish and finish with a protective coating.
This Pin is a great gift item for that special friend who appreciates hand crafted items. Perhaps she owns a beautiful shawl that is always falling off her shoulder and just drives you nuts. Here is the solution. Gift for Friend with small shoulders. Gift for Knitter, Fashionista Gift, Birthday Gift
