Gesture: The penannular brooch, is often associated with Celtic brooch designs but is a much older shape, emerging in the Iron age and becoming popular in Roman Times. It is obvious why this one-piece design has been a popular brooch style for so very long. The Gesture Brooch is light and delicate, with the same beautiful associations with handwork, generosity and gratitude as its siblings.

Honeybee: The ancient one-piece design of the Filigree Honeybee Penannular Brooch makes it an elegant and secure shawl and garment closure. This gorgeous penannular brooch combines three of our filigree honeybees, evoking the ways honeybees cluster socially in their hives.
Charm Lock with Honeybee Pendant: This new shawl pin concept relies upon a flexible component we have named a Charm Lock, a serpentine-shaped element that can accommodate a charm that can be slid on and off and then 'locked' in place with the stick. The pin may be worn on its own without a charm for a sleek elegant statement. When charms are added, the pin takes on a lively, kinetic feel that is charming, unique, and secure.
Pearlescent: This limited edition penannular brooch is an elegant, minimalist statement piece that gorgeously fixes knitted and crocheted garments and accessories. Each Pearlescent Penannular Brooch is different, set with a unique cultured pearl component. These pearls range in color from iridescent blue to iridescent grey, and a range of bronze and rose tones.
Runa: 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.
