Monday Favorites and Linky Love

This week's favorites are shawl pins to hold those handmade crocheted shawls around your shoulders on the chilly nights. First up is a tutorial for a wire Heart Fibula by Jewelie Beads....

And finally this beauty from Ingo Designs is made of copper with a lovely smooth quartz stone drop....
