Do you sell any of your work? I cannot find a straight cloak pin anywhere.

Thanks for the offer, but I don't really make any business to outside Finland.

They are really nice!
Do you have a shop or some tutorial to explain how to make those wonderfull little things *-*

Thanks for faving them.
I sell my products mainly in different fairs and other summer events in East/South-Finland and I don't have any kind of online shop etc. And when i'm forging new jewelry pieces for my stands, I often try to make very many different models at once, so it's quite difficult to make tutorial from some individual piece.

As amazing as these are, those hair pins look deadly! Something tells me I wouldn't be able to fly on a plane wearing them.

Yeah. I have used very similar things also for throwing exercises, because their size and weight is quite close to traditional "bo-shuriken" throwing spikes. :XD:

Thanks for adding me to your watch-list.

Well then. If I ever get the hang of thrown objects, I'll have to buy some like these! I tried throwing knives (with supervision) and kept missing the target. I probably shouldn't give that up.

I *had* to add your gallery to my watch. You have viking themes. I love seeing those themes.

Knifes and spikes need usually good knowledge to throw them properly, but tomahawks and other small throwing axes are more easy also for beginners.

how much for a brooche??

About 20-25 euros, but you have come to Finland if you want to buy something.

Lol.. Don't pity your metal working skills. For example that gautlet project looks very great. :)

thanks, but the gauntlet is sawing, bending and filing, not forging. I'd love to forge a gauntlet, or a knife, or a sparkstriker... you know, the basics are usually enough to get me started, I just need a forge and someone to show me the first steps.
ah but time will come, I think. soon i'll be moving out of my 2room appartement into something bigger, hopefully it has a garden where i can set up a forge ^^

thanks for appreciating the gauntlet and see you around

These are actually quite basic stuff, but i don't usually have enough of time for making more complex pieces like these things. :XD:

In nowadays i just make copies from my older brooch/pendant models and not invent so much new and totally unique pieces like in few years ago..

Each and every one of them is ingenious! Love the wrapping parts, guess they were a pain in the but?

Yeah. That wrapped end in the brooch needle is some times quite difficult to make. It comes very easily too tight and brooch don't work very well..
