The Runa Penannular Brooch: This beautiful penannular brooch was designed for knitwear as an alternative to two-piece shawl pins. Runa is inspired by Norse designs that make liberal use of spiral motifs. In addition, we love the shape of Norse helmets and used aspects of their form to create the stick portion of this pin.
The Celtic Lion Shawl Pin is a light-weight, elegant, and interesting shawl pin was inspired by Celtic illuminated letters using the forms of animals as well as the knots so well-known in Celtic designs. The back of this beautiful pin is just as gorgeous as the front, revealing an inscribed version of the low relief motifs on the front. We love the daintiness of the companion stick which may be worn on its own on delicate knits. It's companion Shawl Stick - Regulus, which may be purchased separately, but pairs perfectly with the ring of this gorgeous design. The ring measures at 2.25" outer diameter, 1.5" inner diameter. The stick measures 4" long.
