Sterling Silver (925/1000) Penannular Brooch -
Rectangular Twisted Bar

Index Price: $NZ 115

This Penannular Brooch is handcrafted from Sterling Silver (925/1000) using rectangular bar which is twisted before being formed into the brooch; it weighs 5.8 gms. The brooch is based on numerous finds dating from the Iron Age onwards in the UK and Europe. This design looks to Scandinavian styles where Silver, rather than Gold, was the precious metal of choice

To fasten a penannular push the pin through the fabric to be held, then flip the ring down so that the pin comes up through the gap, and then rotate the ring so as to hold the cloth on the pin. (Explanation courtesy: of www.ourpasthistory.com)
