Abstract: The paper primarily deals with the issue of inner-development and significance of the specific type of arc-shaped needle clasp, which represents a characteristic artifact for the Carpathian-Danube area during Koszider period (the so-called „sickle-pins“). Additionally, it gives an overview of the basic elements of female costume – metal garnish of clothing and body at the beginning of the Middle Bronze Age, where it compares the occurrence of jewelry in hoards of bronze artifacts with their real representation in funeral features (inhumation burials). In conclusion, the question of the possibility of significant interregional cultural interactions in the end of the mentioned period is sketched. These can be reflected by „influencing“ the local metallurgical production of pins and jewelry, in particularly some of its attributes like decoration and functional elements, which otherwise do not originate in the Carpathian bronze metal industry production tradition.
