Getting Historical at Copperheart Designs


The latest addition to my shop is inspired by the annular brooches worn by ancient Celtic and Nordic peoples. Mine is sort of a simplified version, made from etched copper with a sterling silver pin. To wear brooches like this, you just pull some cloth through the opening, put the pin through, and then pull the excess cloth back out. The tension of the fabric holds the pin closed.
