The Scorpion Safety Pin
This oversized safety pin is entirely hand fabricated out of sterling silver. The eye catching pendant of the pin is a solid piece of sterling silver, set with a fine silver scorpion, I have individually hand cast, cradling a beautiful piece of Kingman Turquoise (that I went an picked out directly from the mine in Arizona this winter), set in a serrated bezel and rope border. Simple stamping details also add to the piece. You can use these beauties as clothing or home decor, keychains, to pin your important documents or birthday dollars on you... the possibilities are endless. I’ll admit they are actually the hardest piece to make from the collection, and I definitely never nailed it. So each pin has some (hidden on the reverse) personality marks as I attempted different methods of cutting or folding the metal. Each piece is absolutely functional and sturdy, but you know, handmade! But that's what you’re here for though right? Getting to hold a piece you know I spent many hours/days pouring all of my heart and soul and frustrations and triumphs into?! These pins are every bit that. Completely one of a kind and made with so much love.
It measures 3 1/4” long and 7/8" at its widest point.
It weighs .65 oz.
As each of these pieces are new designs, they are all still in a way prototypes. After years of moving metal I trust in their strength and longeviety. But I also know with handmade sometimes small surprises come up, I stand behind my work completely, so if ever there is any issue with one of these pieces due to my handiwork I will absolutely repair it for you asap. If the issue of said piece seems to come from user ware, I will also happily repair the piece for you, for a reasonable labor/material fee. I want you to wear these pieces for life. Support handmade, and these hands will support you <3
That being said, please see the care instructions card that will come with your piece for how to properly give your SSH goods the longest life possible!
