A Fascination With Deep Purple!
Adorn any sweater, hat, or scarf with this exquisite deep purple and silver tone fibula. Did you know that fibulas were originally made by the Greeks to fasten their togas? I guess you could say they were the first safety pins, but today artists create them to decorate knits and more!
This fibula is artfully made with a dazzling deep purple, faceted glass bead as its focal. I have had this bead for quite some time, and never found the right project to include it in until now! It is surrounded with intricate bead caps and beads which compliment, but do not take away the attention from the bead. The pin point is filed to a sharp point that is buffed smooth, and will work best with loosely woven or bulky knits.
The Deep Purple Fascination fibula is 2-5/8 inches in length and 1 inch in height.
Thank you for looking!
