This little burnisher was lovingly hand-sculpted and then cast in lead-free pewter. A burnisher is a tool used by jewelers to set gemstones. The pin is located in the center of the handle, for easy positioning horizontally or vertically. The pin and clutch are both made of nickel and are silver in color. It is approx. 1 inch in length and .25 in width. Because of it's small size, it would work equally well as a tie tack, lapel pin, or just a brooch. You could also use it to decorate a purse or book bag. The pin will be shipped gift-wrapped. Please see my profile and shop policies pages for more information about myself and my jewelry.
