CLOAK PINS / PENANNULAR BROCHES / CLOTHES PINS / FIBULAS

Small penannular brooches are used to fasten clothing either at the collar, the waist, or used to pin your leg straps/winningas.

Larger penannular brooches are called Cloak Pins as they are used for fastening a cloak.

All the larger designs on this page are very tough, solid and chunky.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE OF PENNANULAR BROOCH / CLOAK PIN:
  1. Open the cloak pin so that the pin is pointing in the opposite direction to the hole in the ring.
  2. Stick the pin through the cloth and then back out again so that the pin is held in place by the cloth.
  3. Close the cloak pin all the way so that the end of the pin passes through the ring.
  4. Turn the ring though 90 degrees.
