Hobnob Shawl Buttons - 202004
Our handmade clay shawl buttons are individually decorated which makes each a unique item. Even though we carefully fire each piece in the same manner, variation occurs and gives unique qualities to the piece.
These unique versions of our Shawl Pin Family were designed for use with fibers that might not be able support the larger versions (both Large Shawl Pins and Small Shawl Pins), alpaca and lace weight yarns for examples. While we call the item a Shawl Button, it can be used as a ornament for a sweater or a hat adornment and some have used it in their hair.
The colors on the individual pieces are a hallmark of LickinFlames. The shawl buttons take several weeks to dry and then the finishing and glazing can take place. When the shawl buttons are removed from the kiln a double pronged clip is added to finish the piece. approx. 1 3/8 x 3 1/4 inches long
Remember that because of the handmade nature of the brooch, some variations should be expected. The pieces in the pictures may not be the pieces actually shipped but are examples of the colors and style. The quality is always the same standard that LickinFlames is known for, but some variations in color, design element placement and decoration patterns needs to be allowed. We know you will love the piece that is shipped.
