Copper and Silver Penannular Brooch -
Rattlesnake design

Index Price: $NZ 138

A modern take based on numerous finds dating from the Iron Age onwards in the UK and Europe. This design looks to Scandinavian styles where Silver, rather than Gold, was the precious metal of choice. The brooch is approximately 90% Copper and 10% silver, and weighs 12.8gms.

To fasten a penannular push the pin through the fabric to be held, then flip the ring down so that the pin comes up through the gap, and then rotate the ring so as to hold the cloth on the pin. (Explanation courtesy: of
