Hello everyone! It has been a long time since I have posted, but I have been very busy with my business. However, in light of the recent tragedy in our country, I wanted to share a simple painted pin that I have made recently.

Hi Samantha,

The pin is really lovely and the design unique! Can artists pitch designs to jewelry manufacturers? I can just see your pin in all kinds of varieties: enameled or covered over with rhinstones.

What kind of materials did you use?

Hi Lee,
I have no idea about jewelry stores, but I can tell you what I used....I constructed the pin out of 140lb. watercolor paper....glued a pin to the back, painted it with acrylics, and sealed it with a glossy spray. Not as durable as wood, but sometimes it is a nice alternative.

I really like this Samantha. The way you did the folds of the flag is so good.

I like this design very much. But, (yes a but, sorry). I would do away with the text. The US flag is so well know that you dont need it. Let the flag say it all.
Unless text is formatted correctly, it becomes tacky.

Would you consider doing up other country flags?
Im' interested in having you make an Australian one for me, in the same style.
You just might be onto a money maker here. Good luck.

Teanne...

I forgot to ask if you wanted your pin made out of wood or the watercolor paper...? :)

Then wood it is!!!! And I'll tell you what....you tell me what the pin is worth to you, and that will be the price.....(really!) :) Because I don't know what the going rate for pins are! LOL

Oh! Plus shipping of course!:D
