• Leaf Head Hand Forged Brooch

Worn by the Celts in Britain from about the third century into early Christian times, this Penannular brooch is perfect for fastening a heavy cloak. Hand-forged with a leaf shape at the end and measuring 8.5cm from end to end.

The term Penannular means almost a ring, brooches were produced in a variety of sizes and materials. The early Penannulars were quite plain and had very little decoration with the end sections typically curled. 

To use, the pin is pushed through folds of the cloth, which are then pulled back inside the ring; the free end of the pin then passes through the gap in the ring. The pin is then rotated around the ring by 90 degrees or so, so that as long as the pin is held down by slight pressure it cannot escape over the terminals, and the fastening is secure.
