About my pins

All my pins are made based on a Illustration I created. My main focus lies on mermaids and pin up art, that's why my mainly theme are mermaid pins and pin up mermaids. Pin up is inspired by retro looks of the 40ies, 50ies and 60ies, my mermaid pins have all a vintage look and style on them. And because I love everything retro Audrey Hepburn is also one of my muses. That's why I dedicated one of my pin designs to her iconic role as the style Icon Holly Golightly.  

All my enamel pins are made with hard enamel which is also known as hard emaille or cloissone, which is one of the most durable coloring form for enamel pins. The metal is plated with gold polish, black nickel or silver polish. All colors are applied manually by my manufacturer, that's why little imperfections are common. However you get a handmade little artwork.

All pins come with rubber backings if not stated otherwisely. If you wear them, take care that the rubber backing is attached firmly to the pin posts to not loose it.
