This heavy pin is beautifully decorated with serpents and bosses, influenced by the design on St.Martin's cross which stands outside iona Abbey. The serpents symbolise renewal of life and the open circle style is influenced by historical pieces such the Tara brooch of Ireland. The design uses the traditional method of fastening by inserting the pin into the fabric and turning the body of the brooch to lock the piece in place.
