More Celtic Trinity Knot Shawl Pins and Ornament


I’ve been working on adding this design to our shop as shawl pins. This is the

Sterling Silver Celtic Trinity Knot Shawl Pin . It could probably work well in hair

but will only hold small amounts of hair.

And this is the Little Celtic Trinity Knot Cross Sterling Silver Shawl Pin  that would

work best on lacy light weight shawls, scarfs shrugs etc.


This design lends itself well as an ornament too!


The Celtic Trinity Knot Cross Ornament in Aluminum . I plan to add this design in

copper and as a pendant too! So much to do!




But for now there ‘s also the summer to enjoy. Our rambling roses are blooming this week.

Nick Made Door Handles From Old Wrenches For Our Shop

When we put in the lovely french doors in our new shop building we knew
we wanted some special handles.
We looked around at antique stores and home depot etc and nothing really "spoke" to us.
So Nick came up with the brilliant idea of using some of his many  (understatement) wrenches
to make our own. He made them yesterday.

                       He drilled holes which was somewhat tricky on the hardened steel.
                                                      He used a solid carbide drill bit.

                                                   Side view.

Home Project- Screen Door Celtic Knot Wire Art

I made this trinity knot wire thingie for our screen door at the front of our house.
The screen door is warped and not long for this world but it needed something.
The trinity knot design didn't come out as symmetrical as I'd like but good enough.
It's nice to make something for ourselves once in a while that isn't for sale.

This is a view looking at it from inside the house.

New Big Celtic Pendants In Our Shop

After making the Celtic Trinity Knot Aluminum Hair Pin, Shawl Pin I realized a
pendant would work well too. The Big Celtic Trinity Knot Aluminum Pendant is now
available too in our Etsy shop.

We also added the Big Celtic Swirl Shamrock Whirl pendant to our shop this week.

 So I had finally gotten back into the swing of blogging again and then Windows Live Writer changed everything on me and I have to learn how to use blogger now. I am a slow learner.

New Celtic Trinity Knot Aluminum Hair Pin , Shawl Pin


I had a customer ask if we could do something like this with the trinity knot design.

At first I thought it would be too hard to do. But I’ve been getting the hang of

remaking this design.Embarrassingly I lost her contact information so if you are

out there and see this,

Sorry I didn’t get back to you and thanks for the suggestion!


The Celtic Trinity Knot Aluminum Pin works great as a shawl pin…


and a hair pin.

New Bass Clef Shawl Pin


In keeping with the music theme, we added the Bass Clef Shawl Pin to our shop

this week. The bass clef has been requested by many and I never really felt too

good about the designs I came up with. Those two little dots on the side are tricky!

But this design works well I think. Hope the musicians agree!

New Treble Clef Hair Sticks or Shawl Pins


I had an epiphany a few weeks ago and realized that the treble clef lends itself

perfectly to a hair stick / shawl pin design.


This is the Copper Treble Clef Stick




The Brass Treble Clef Hair Stick/ Shawl Pin



And the Aluminum Treble Clef Hair Stick/ Shawl Pin


The perfect gift for the right musician and music lover.
