Penannular Brooch - Woven Bronze and Tigers Eye

By Abby Hook

Penannular Brooch - Woven Bronze and Tigers Eye

I was inspired to make this piece by the beautiful Celtic and Viking brooches. The simple mechanics of this style of fastening makes it suitable to use as a brooch or scarf, kilt or hat pin. The last image in the sequence shows you how to wear it.

I have made the brooch with multiple thick bronze wires to form the shape, which I have hand forged and then woven with thinner bronze wire, to create an attractive pattern but also to make the structure very strong. I have attached faceted Tigers Eye drops at the terminals of the brooch and to the pin, creating an ornately detailed piece

I have oxidised this piece to really highlight the detail.

The brooch measures 1 1/3” across and 1 2/3” tall. The pin is 2 7/8” long.

This item comes in a jewellery box.
