A friend of mine, Marek from Poland, made this pin almost 30 years ago in Chicago. We were members of an artist’s co-op and he gave it to me as a gift. He was so much fun and I would love to see him again someday!  In the photo below, we were at a huge flea market that no longer exists.

I’ve always felt that this was the shape of a person dancing. Such a happy pin! Marek shaped silver wires and then hammered them and soldered them. The blue lapis finishes it off beautifully! He built a sturdy hand made clasp on the back. This pin would be great on knitwear!

It is 2.75″ long, 7 cm

Marek’s jewelry was completely worked by hand. He cut it, hammered it, soldered it…  True artisanship!
