The ruffled glass bead on this shawl pin was created at my torch, using cranberry colored American soft glass, with silver leaf melted into the surface, giving it an antique looking patina. I then twisted 14 gauge fine silver wire, added a couple of silver beads and a pin holder (also made of fine silver wire), and, Voila! a shawl pin.
The ruffled bead is 1" tall at the center, and approximately 1 3/8" wide. The overall length of the pin is 7" including the antenna-like finials. The Fine Silver Pin Holder is 2" x 1 3/4".
As with all my beads, this one has been kiln annealed for strength and durability, but remember that it IS glass, and treat it with care.
The perfect accessory for your shawl, scarf, or sweater, but it is not suitable for tightly woven fabrics.
I have tried my best to present colors as accurately as possible but monitors will vary.
