Long Pin


#1

Greetings,

Saw a platinum an d diamond pin on a mannequin in an Estate Jewelry
Store window at Cesar’ s Palace in Las Vegas. Pin was about 10 inches
long but only an inch wi de… Question…how do you pin something that
long? Two pins, one long p in? Does the cloth bunch up under one long
pin? Hmmmmm! my spell check er likes Cesar and I don’t think it’s
right. Thanks,

Correct spelling is Caesars. Now for the pin question. I would use a
fairly long pin (about 3 inches) but place it on the tope third of
the back for balance. Too low down and it will be top heavy. The
other thought would be to use two horizontal pins- One at top and one
about halfway. You would then be creating a safety clasp by using the
second pin in case the first one opens.If this were a pin that I made
and used the 3 inch pin, I probably would sell it with a sliding
clutch or some kind of rubber stopper to put on the pin after
piercing the fabric. Would you want to replace a 10 inch long diamond
& platinum pin if a customer lost it if the pin clasp opened up???

Perhaps the pin is secured by a couple tacks, like a tie tack. The
piece could be easily placed at any angle and remain in place without
cloth bunching or such. Just don’t hug the wearer too tightly :slight_smile:
