Scarab Tie Tack - Handmade Wire Wrapped Jewelry for Men
My handmade tie tacks are the final touch to a great suit.
I make my tie tacks with all the care and attention to design I use in my large statement pieces, yet they are only about 1-2 cm. Each tie pin is made individually from solid copper, bronze, stainless steel and/or silver jewelry wire and has a high quality brass base. The tacks incorporate a variety of wire jewelry techniques such as wire weaving, cold forging and wire wrapping. I also often use gemstones or resin, depending on the piece. Some tie tacks are oxidized to give them a dark, industrial patina, which is then hand buffed and polished until I get the effect I want. All pieces are sealed with a professional protective coating.
Here are the specs for the tie tack in this listing:
This unique, one-of-a-kind tie tack is crafted from bronze and copper jewelry wire. It features intricate wire weaving and a blue-black gemstone scarab (the scarab is VERY lightly etched). The "above tie" measurements are 20mm x 13mm x 4mm

How they came about:
My lawyer friend was looking for a way to give some personality to his conservative wardrobe of dark suits and asked me to make him some tie tacks. I said I thought my style would be a little much for the court room and he said that's the point. He wanted something to add a little flair to his wardrobe, but not stand out too much. My tie pins turned out to be just the thing.
