This is a little penannular brooch I made quite a while back.
Brooches of this style were common amongst the Celtic and Germanic tribes.

Thank you all very much for the kind words!

Prokopto: I no longer have this so I cant measure it, but I recall it being around 1 1/2" with a pin at 2 3/8" long. I used 1/4 inch round to make the whole thing.

Awesome! Thanks for the 411. I think I may light the forge after church today and give one a try.

That piece is really lovely. What a talent you have -- and a wonderful eye for proportion. This is the kind of thing that brings me back to the beauty of blacksmithing.
