A Rose by Any Other Name...
A lovely fibula for your knits
A fibula is the perfect adornment for any knit sweater, hat, or scarf. They were originally made by the Greeks to fasten their togas, but today artists create them to decorate knits and more!
This fibula is artfully made with twists and curves of silver tone wire. Its focal bead has a sparkly, gold glitter center, wrapped in swirls of white and pink roses on each side of the bead. It is flanked by two intricate bead caps, and a ruby red and iridescent glass bead. The pin point is filed to a sharp point that is buffed smooth, and will work best with loosely woven or bulky knits.
It measures 2-3/8 of an inch in length, and 7/8 of an inch in width.
Thank you for looking!
