Penannular Brooch - Celtic Spirals - Twisted Sterling Silver

By Abby Hook

Penannular Brooch - Celtic Spirals - Twisted Sterling Silver

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 sterling silver wires to form the shape, which I have twisted together, hand forged and then hammered to create an attractive pattern, this also makes the structure very strong. I have formed 3 overlapping spirals at each end of the brooch, creating a celtic inspired pattern.

The pin is made from 1.25mm wire, which I have filed and sanded into a point, it has an attractive layered detail to the loop.

I have oxidised this brooch, to highlight the detail.

The brooch measures 1 1/8” across (from side to side) and 1 1/3” tall (from the bottom to the top of the spirals) and the pin is 1 7/8” long.

This item comes in a jewellery box.
