Scarf pins

Steven was asked by a shop to design and create some scarf pins samples for people to use for closing or fixing their knitted scarves and jackets. These are the first ones he has come up with....

All are in different Australian native woods... one uses ironbark rescued from a very old bridge over the Murray River. They are approximately 15cm (6 inches) long and I've discovered also work well in the hair  keeping a bun in place.
They are much classier that the very plain sample he was given as a guide (not that I'm biased, of course!)
What do you think of them? Any feedback would be great.

I think they're gorgeous!!! Make them a little longer & they'd make great knitting needles. :-)) cheers, Jan

Divine! Such a fabulous talent Steven has to make simple wood into such a piece of ART!

Fantastic and if I was a scarf wearer of the woolen variety I would be asking where I could buy them.

I love them and would very happily purchase some for myself and for gifts....would love to know where they might be sold? Please!!!

They are beautiful and I would buy them - For scarves for me and for hair pins for my DD. I like esp. that the history of the wood is included - (on a card with the pin?)
