A while back Salpal from What I’m Up To Today posted about a jeweller in her home state of Maine who makes the most fantastic shawl pins. I showed them to my husband as we happened to have been talking about how you wear a shawl (with panache and style – obviously – but he wanted to know the practicalities…) so was rather surprised to have this presented to me a couple of days ago:
Isn’t it beautiful? All the way from Adriot Jewellers in Maine! I am SO chuffed!
That bar is loose and you put it through a shawl, bring the pin up through the opening and then swivel the circle to fasten. No pins! A really simple design.
It’s still a bit too warm to wear shawls but I will get a lot of use out of it later in the year.
