Enamel Pins: What Metal Words Can Express



It may not surprise you that with my love of quirky jewelry, buttons, and brooches, it would not take long for me to fall under the spell of enamel pins. I recently stepped into the pin game, thanks to Twin Peaks Pins by Jenni's Prints and have been building my collection one pin at a time. I wear them on my shirt collars (much as like collar clips), on jackets and blazers, or directly on my shirts.

I will be touching on various themes within enamel pins in the weeks to come, but for starters, I have selected the expression of words. Pins, like other forms of flair, are ways to express your interests, your geekery, your passions, moods, or your personality.

Whether you need a pin to express your introverted nature, your optimistic side, or to warn of a bad day, there is a pin out there. They are also affordable, typically ranging from $5 to $10 each. Below I have curated a selection of my favorite phrases and styles. For the most part, I like simplicity in pins, but I did choose a few with unique shapes or fonts. Enjoy and happy collecting.
