If you've been living under a rock or something, you might not know just how popular enamel pin badges seem to be at the moment. Over the past few months, I've seen more and more cute designs crop up on Instagram and Etsy sellers making more and more of them. I also see a lot of limited edition pins being offered in those subscription / lucky dip boxes, but I've never really had a lot to do with those.
Anyhow, I had a little browse recently and came up with a shortlist of my favourite enamel pins - you might even say I've listed the ones I found most pinteresting here.. (See what I did there?!) Also, I don't know if I'm breaking the wishlisting rules as I've actually already ordered some of these, but there you are.
001: I couldn't put a list together without first adding Lucy's soda pop pin. I've followed Smile and Make on Instagram for a long while and have read her blog, and frankly I'm in awe of her positive outlook on life. Lucy has designed and created her collection of pins in memory of her husband and she is donating a percentage of the profits to the charity set up in his memory, so I'd urge you to support this one.
002: This little narwhal is adorable - another Instagram find for me (I used the "Explore" page on there quite a lot).
003: One of my favourite Etsy jewellery sellers is DesigosaurYEAH so I was pleased to see that they have a lovely dinosaur pin design. Love the bright colours on this little guy!
004: This is the other one I've already actually ordered - I follow Holly on IG as well and have seen her little triceratops crop up many times. I added him to the straps of my homemade dungaree shorts so that he could join my America adventure.
005: Jellyfish kind of freak me out in real life, but I'd be more than happy to house this little one. Cute, no..?
006: This tiny fox reminds me so much of a little fox cartoon we used to watch as kids, so he's appealing to me for reasons of nostalgia, which are always good reasons, right?!
Do you have any pins? Which are your favourites?
