Shawl Clasp – Hair Pin
Shawl Clasp – Hair Pin is a great accent piece for that special garment or hair design. The pin is a gorgeous piece of Ambrosia Maple. The ring is Maple Burl. The Shawl Pin can be used alone as a stick pine or as a set with the Maple Burl Ring for a dramatic effect on that special sweater of scarf. Use it to accent a wonderful knit, crochet, scarf or wrap. Also it makes a beautiful hair accessory. The ring size is 2 1/8 inches outside diameter with 1 1/2 inside diameter. The pin is 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 these buggers leave behind colorful earth tone streaks of colorful wood 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 who wears a beautiful shawl that is always falling off her shoulder that drives you nuts? Problem solved for both of you. A win-win situation. Need a Birthday Gift, Gift for Knitter or Fashionista Gift?
