Magnetic Portuguese Knitting Pin Round Gold tone metal Cloisonne Flowers Red Pink Lavender Knitting tool Knitting supplies
Preowned but unused, this pair of cloisonne earrings is done in gold tone metal with a charming simple design of pink lily shaped flowers against a deep red background. The long slender leaves are in lavender. The enamels are bright and in excellent condition. Any dark spots on the gold areas are reflections. This is newer cloisonne, lighter in weight than the vintage pieces, but well executed. I've rotated the design slightly. Both pieces are identical and not mirror images of each other as many earrings can be.
1 5/8" diameter, 2" north to south including the hook.
The post has been removed and a neodymium magnet* has been attached to convert it for use in Portuguese knitting. An inner magnet is backed with a metal disc which is, in turn, backed with felt for comfort against the skin. It is slipped inside your top to secure the pin.
The hook has been hand formed to fit the back. It is sturdy and stationary making it easy and quick to place and remove the yarn.
Please remember these are conversions. There may be remainders of the original fittings that couldn’t be removed without damage.
*Those with medical electronic devices should check on the use of these magnets.
If you’re buying more than one item, put them into the shopping cart for combined shipping charges at checkout. It’ll be less than purchasing them individually. This is particularly effective for international buyers. If you have a friend or friends who also do Portuguese knitting, purchasing a few pins at the same time adds only a few dollars to the initial cost, and when divided among several people, brings the shipping charges down to a manageable amount when shipped to one address.
