Handmade Wood Shawl and Hair Pins by TurtleWorkshop


Handmade Wood Shawl and Hair Pins by TurtleWorkshop

Penannular or Celtic brooches have been around for thousands of years. These useful decorative accessories are still popular today for the same reason. They hold yarn knitted or crochet shawls together.  Or used as brooches on handmade garments.

But modern designers have their own design interpretations of this classic such as Russian woodworker, Alexander Shushkov of TurtleWorkshop.

His beautifully finished wooden shawl pins, which can also be used as hair pins are charming. The designs depict nature - especially animals.

Alexander explained, "I inherited the love for wood from my father who had worked as a carpenter throughout his life. When I was a child, he used to take me to his work place where he taught me some wood processing skills.

Nowadays, I have my own studio where I make furniture and other wooden items. Wood is a beautiful, warm and natural material – it is exactly for these characteristics that I like it."

His designs are made using only natural materials - wood, oil and wax.  I also liked his eco friendly packaging - wood shavings rather than polystrene chips.

  1. His designs are absolutely delightful!

    I have a friend who is a woodturner and I recently got a tour of his workshop. The smell of the woodshavings and the wax was intoxicating! It made me want to nestle down and watch him at work.

    Nothing can beat natural.
