Freeform Shawl pin

shawl pin

This is a freeform copper shawl pin using a wireworking technique. I love the warm natural look of copper. This is a one of a kind item, as I rarely repeat a design.

Some may ask, how do you keep copper looking good?

It is a matter of making a potion of salt and lemon juice in a jar. Drop the copper into it, and in approximately a minute, it will turn a bright colour.  Some wearers, like the darker patina and others like the shiny version.
