3 ½" (8.5 cm) Hammered Sterling Large Safety Pin
Flora MacDonald was a Scotswoman of the 1700's who gained fame by fearlessly helping Bonnie Prince Charlie escape capture during his bid to reclaim the Scottish throne. She is held up as an example of grace and courage throughout Scotland and beyond.
I hope this pin also shows some of her qualities...grace in it's gentle curves, and strength in holding your kilt, shawl, or sweater securely in place. It is made of sterling silver wire (14 ga) and hand shaped, then hammered to add to the beauty and springy qualities of the wire. It takes a turn in the polisher also, to add more strength and shine.
This weight is suitable for most knits, sweaters, and a light boiled wool fabric. For a pin suitable for the heaviest coats and weightiest knits, please convo me for a pin made of 12 ga wire ($47.50).
It's hard to beat a classic shape in a precious metal.
Unless you tell me otherwise, I will ship this pin with a rounded tip to slide through knit yarns without splitting them. If you would like a sharpened end to pierce woven fabrics, please let me know in the comments section when you order. Thanks!
