Native American Hand Forged Copper Turquoise Wrapped Blanket Pin

This Item Has Been Sold

Product Description
This is real turquoise that I wire wrapped.
I personally hand forge each of these OOAK pins from copper wire
Each piece is made with labors of love and each one is unique in it's on way.
All my pins are hand forged from a straight piece of copper and the point of the pins has been filed and smoothed so that it will not catch on the fabric.
They are perfect for a blanket to wrap around your shoulders like a cape on those cold days and nights or with loosely woven fabrics such as sweaters, knit scarves, shawls, or wool kilts.
1" wide

More Info
The copper wire used in this pin is in it's natural form and has not been treated with waxes or sprays.
Copper naturally oxidizes over time and develops a patina. Some people love that look and some prefer to keep it shiny.
To keep them shiny, soak in vinegar. It does not take long, you can just about see it change as you watch. When they are shiny again, rinse and dry.
