Penannular Brooch - Smooth Bronze

By Abby Hook

Penannular Brooch - Smooth Bronze

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 thick Bronze wires to form the shape, which I have hand forged and then hammered, to create texture, this also makes the structure very strong. The pin is made from thick 2mm wire, which I have filed and sanded into a point. The hinge of the pin has been hammered, to create a tapered, layered effect. The thick wire of the pin makes this brooch unsuitable for delicate fabrics. It is perfect for chunky knits!

The brooch measures 1 1/3” across and the pin is 2” long.

This item comes in a jewellery box.
