I have made some with a small stitch holder & either beads or yarn wrapped around it.
our member Bethshangirl makes/sells lovely ones.
Yes, She makes beautiful shawl pins and many other lovely items. I would look there first.
I have bought several on ETSY. Very many designs.
Yes, this is the one I was referring to in an earlier post. Her shawl pins are uniquely beautiful and fairly priced as are all of the lovely items she makes and sells. Thanks for posting the link, lainey.
Wool and Sheep Festivals (there's one in Georgia in September if you can wait that long) is a good place to shop for accessories to woolly things.
Wow! Just checked out The Shawl Pin Store. They seem to have every style and size of pin made.
I make them. I purchase copper grounding wire from the hardware store, bend them to the shape I want and then use a small hammer and bench block to hammer them flat,(that also tempers the wire, or hardens it) then I dip the project in a patina bath. This is a photo of Anne Berk the author of Annetarsia Knits wearing one of my shawl pins. Anne is the good friend of my BFF.
Loveknitting and jimmybeans have them
I bought some from Hobby Lobby, and ordered some from Walmart.com. Today I bought some at a craft fair in Fairhope, AL. I always look at craft fairs and am starting to see more. The girl from Fairhope has a website with her designs (www.claudiacarreon.com
she is also on Facebook (claudiacarreondesigns)
I've seen a few at Hobby Lobby too.
There is an online store called The Shawl Pin Store......I don't know how to attach a link, but google it...every kind you can think of.
Edit...in the time it took me to post several beat me to it!!!
I purchase hair pins for pinning the hair up.they are the perfect size and cheaper.
