Mary Gage / Lillian Pines -- Sword Pins (page 3)

 

Both Gage and Pines produced a series of Scimitar-form pins. Other makers, including Kalo, also created sword-shaped pins. The ones by Gage and Pines reflect their customary use of wirework and bead ornament, freeform semiprecious stones, and heavy oxidation.
