Thanks! I, too, have both of my late Grannys' pins tucked away in my jewelry boxes; once again, I appreciate the good info I'm gleaning from you meet folks on this site, which I joined just 3-days ago. I'm glad I did! 🤗

This looks simple enough to make on your own, and you could match the colour of the dress using the bead?

Hobby Lobby, Pat Catan's, Michaels - all have them and you can get them on line at most knit/crochet suppliers like this one:

I have bought them at Joann's and Hobby Lobbyand are much less expensive than at the yarn shops. especially if you have a coupon.

Thanks so much for that link - I've added to my wire jewelry page. I have been taking notes about all the DIY ideas for shawl pins. I also dabble in jewelry making and need ideas to use up that stash! This looks good - as well as several others before...

I believe I have seen them in Mary Maxim's catalog. Good Luck.

Thank you to all of you clever, crafty people. As luck would have it, one of our fellow KPers had a small stash of shawl pins, and one of them was exactly what I was looking for. Transaction done.

We really are a great group.

Glad you found something, I forgot there are people on KP who make them, and sell them.

I checked my special website. Download "Ali express" and in the search box at top type in "shawl pins". They have hundreds and they are as little as
54 cents and up. It is free shipping from China but keep in mind it takes approximately 4 to 6 weeks to get them.

Katie from Maine. I live in Washington from but my husband was born in Masardis and raised mostly in MILLINOCKET. We spent 2nd through 6th years in Millinocket. I love Maine, he loves WA. He says you don't have to shovel rain. We've been married 48 years plus. If he goes before me I will move back to Maine. I loved the sun and snow and cold.

Check Hobby Lobby, JoAnns and local LYS stores usually sell hand made artsy ones.

Try looking on the Etsey website. They have a number of freelance artists who make jewelry.

Where does one obtain shawl pins? Are they strictly a specialty item, available in either boutiques or jewelry stores, or can you find them in department stores? I'm thinking of the ones that are like what we used to call stick pins. I haven't seen those for sale anywhere since I was a girl. I've tried myself using a brooch, but the ones with a long enough pin are usually pretty heavy.

I'm in the beginning stages of planning for a wedding shawl for one of my virtual children, and would love to include a pretty shawl pin with it. I haven't seen any for sale, other than occasionally here at KP in the classifieds. If any of you who make these have any in stock, feel free to message me privately. I haven't seen the dress, and I only know the color, so I really am just window shopping at this point.

Any other tips or suggestions greatly appreciated.
