Celtic brooch cloak pin

This is the finished Celtic penannular brooch cloak pin that we designed and made especially for selling at Brooks Medieval Faire. I designed and made the pattern in polymer clay, Al used this pattern to make a silicone mould, into which we poured molten lead-free pewter. It was tidied up using the grinder and engraved on the back. Lastly, Al added a stainless steel pin he had made. A pewter pin would have been too soft.
Brooks Medieval Faire was great fun and we hope to go again next year too. I enjoyed dressing up in medieval costume but it was very very hot. Our little girl looked very sweet in her long white medieval chemise and bluegrey overdress. And she was authentically filthy and barefoot by the end of the weekend 🙂
