Still doing shawl pins. Visit my blog for more on the pins at www.livejournal.com/users/thinknaboutit. The first pins were such a hit at the loom store that I've been asked to make more! Since the theme is Vulcan's Forge, this one seemed to fit the bill nicely. It's made from 30g sterling sheet. A hole was sawn in the center and then I ran it through my tube wringer (my newest favorite tool, thanks to Connie Fox.) I soldered on two pieces of tubing and then mounted a large amazonite with black and red inclusions. I needed to ream the the hole in the bead larger with my dremel to accommodate the 16 guage wire for the pin. An LOS finish brings out the corrugation. This one was fun to make! Thank you in advance for your comments.
