Our popular penannular brooches now in miniature size! These brooches are approximately 20mm outer diameter, or between the size of a dime and nickel, making them perfect for pinning the under layers of your garb. If you prefer the brooches without the curled ends, just select flattened ends. This listing is for one set of 2 brooches.
These penannular brooches are handmade in the style of the brooches worn by the ancient Celts and Vikings! They are miniature versions of a REAL Viking Age brooch that is part of my artifact collection. The brooch you receive will be similar, but since these are all handmade there will be some slight differences. These brooches come standard in brass wire which doesn't oxidize as easily as raw copper and bronze.
The Celtic brooch, more properly called the penannular brooch, is a type of brooch clothes fastener; penannular means formed as an incomplete ring. They are especially associated with the beginning of the Early Medieval period in the British Isles, although they are found in other times and places—for example, forming part of traditional female dress in areas in modern North Africa. They began as as utilitarian fasteners in the Iron Age and Roman period. They became more ornate during the Celtic period from about 700-900 AD and continued in simpler forms during the Viking Age.
