Often adornments are functionally based while others are what one could consider having an aesthetic purpose. An example of such functionality is a shawl pin, which serves to keep a shawl fastened. These shawls connote comfort and warmth, with each one being carefully designed and hand knit to draw the viewer in while the shawl pin works to hold their gaze through a balance of form, color and surface treatment. The wearer enjoys a sensual balance of warmth and beauty.
