Celtic Sword Brooch, Kilt Pin with Maw Sit Sit
This captivating copper sword brooch provides the perfect setting for this rare Maw Sit-Sit stone.
Maw sit sit is rare and isn't easy to find, primarily because it is currently found only in that single location of Burma. Because it is so rare, it is a popular gem among collectors but is not readily available through most jewelers.
Each item begins as a piece of sheet metal, copper, bronze, brass or nickel. After a pattern is transferred to the metal, the piece is etched in a salt-water solution. Each piece is hand cut, sanded, and polished. A patina may be applied or it may be hand painted with dye oxide. A clear polymer coating is applied and a pin attached to the back with adhesive.
