Tattysquawk Shawl Pin - Sail with blue bead Aluminium shawl pin hand-made in Cornwall Stunning, lightweight shawl pin hand-made in Fowey, Cornwall by Tattysquawk. This pin is lightweight enough to be worn with a delicate lace shawl and there are no sharp edges. The pin is made from aluminium wire with a green bead. The sail measures approx 4cm/1.5in. The stick used to secure the pin, measures 12cm/4.5in long. Each pin is individually hand-made & there may be tiny differences between each pin. Aluminum does not tarnish like silver does. It becomes a little duller over time. It can be washed in soapy water and shined up with a polishing cloth. This pin has a blue bead (seen on the right in the photo).
