WOW--those glass pendants are gorgeous!

Wouldn't pottery be expensive to mail?  I love it but it is heavy! 

Its not too bad, more bulk because of the bubble wrap.  Dragons fit into a small priority box so its not terrible (yes, shipping overseas doesn't get priority but you know what I mean Smiley.

I've settled on what I'm offering this round.   I'm offering 5 hammered shawl pins.  The wire is aluminum, even the colored ones.
 You can pick the wire color (silver, black or dark brown) and the shape (square, circle, heart, curled penannular or flattened penannular).  The square, circle and heart shape will have a pin that is not attached.  The curled and flattened will have an attached pin.


This is an example of a shawl pin without an attached pin and how to wear it:


This is an example of how to use the penannular pin that has the attached pin:


examples of shapes:
heart (pin will not be attached):


square (pin will not be attached):


circle (pin will not be attached):


curled penannular (pin will be attached):


flattened penannular (pin will be attached):



example of non-silver wire:



a note about the non-silver wire:
The silver wire is all silver.  The coloring of the non-silver wire is only on the surface (of black and brown) and hammering it (which I need to do to strengthen the wire) could possibly make some of the silver core show through.  However I did make a brown one (see thumbnail above) and you can see it hammered quite nicely.  But its no guarantee that some silver will not show through.   If that bothers you, I would pick the silver.   Smiley



If you don't wear shawls, you could pin it to a scarf.   Smiley   I've also seen other people use shawl pins in their hair as a decoration (the kind with the unattached pin).   Or it makes a pretty gift.   Smiley
