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.
