A delicate version of my Anglo Saxon shawl pin, this time the shape is modified to represent a serpent with winding tail. It's great for lighter weight knits (worsted or lighter), would also work well with hand woven pieces. The brooch is about 2" or 5cm in diameter.
The first five photos show the brooch you will receive; the last three photos are of previous versions of this design for reference.
Inspired by the Jörmungandr or World Serpent in Norse mythology. One of Loki's children by the giantess Angrboda, he surrounds Midgard-- our world.
All my jewellery is made by hand by my partner Mike and myself in a converted 18th century naval school on the wild North coast of Scotland. All pieces come gift wrapped.
