The latest piece to be added to the shop is my take on the penannular brooch. I've long been looking for a brooch design I could create from scratch including the pinning mechanism.
To fasten my version: push the pin through fabric and moving it side-to-side guide it up between the ends of the circle until it rests on top of it. The ends have raised edges which makes it quite secure without the need to turn the pin away from the gap as on the classic penannular.
The silk is dyed with autumn leaves and its colours are mirrored by the frosty star caught on the end of the 'branch'.
