Paula says -
"Pin pendants like these are sometimes called "Grandmother Pins" but could be called a Mother Pin or a Wife Pin.
"See Volume 2 of Paula's Passions for more information on Grandmother Pins."
This piece has a locking pin and also a loop so it can be worn as a pin or as a pendant.
What is Petit Point?
There are two similar techniques of using very small pieces of stone to decorate a piece and they are often confused.
Petit Point is comprised of long , narrow teardrop-shaped stones that have one rounded end and one more pointed end.
Needle Point is comprised of straight, long, narrow stones that are pointed on both ends.
