More Scottish and Irish Tartan Jewelry - Sweet Little Brooches
I ran across (no pun intended) these "run rabbit run" vintage pins on Etsy last week, and had to have them. I am ordering as many as I can find. I would love to have them in the antique silver finish, too If anyone knows where they are hiding, please let me know.
I hate to waste anything, and I am determined to use as much of the pattern as I can. These images are just big enough to get a 1" circle cut out of and have a little strip left that is wide enough for the opening of these frames. The finished pieces can be used as brooches or pendants.
I love, love, love them, and so does everyone who has seen them. Yay! Several are promised for Valentine's Day, but I can make these in any Scottish or Irish tartan pattern. More rabbit pins are on the way.
I have read and studied these tartans so much that I can accurately guess the surname now when I see a pattern. Unfortunately, Irish tartans are limited to county/districts in Ireland, and there are only 3 that I can find for specific surnames.
