    Default A Little Square Pin

    1023C157-8612-4A88-9DC8-422B73EC736D.jpg
    This is the first time I've been happy with the square "wire". I really did nothing special other than square this wire, but I'm pretty excited with how it turned out.
    Some heat, and some cold forging.
    Now I'm going to true up the circle a bit, and give it to my wife's grandma for a gift. She wears a lot of scarves, see.

    These are really simple to make, y'all, and make good gifts for scarf wearers. They hold any cloth, really.

    Anyway. That's all.

    Peace,

    Thanks Canoeyawl. I use a set of tapered pliers already. I do a lot of copper stuff. I made all the links in the little bracelet by hand. The little finding in the foreground, too.

    The scarf pins are copies of old Roman cloak pins, and they’re made from hanger wire hand squared with a hammer and anvil. It’s therapy.

    Peace,
    Robert
