VARIOUS PINS & PATCHES
I loved making pins. It was like creating vector images and then physically manifesting them.
The process for normal pins was pretty straight forward. I draw something, keep the coloring simple, then produce. Learning about hard and soft enamel, was interesting. I saw all this debate about which was better and in the end it all really seemed like preference.
For moving pins, it takes a little bit more strategy and critical thinking. I love problem solving for those situations and it made me feel like I was actually engineering something.
Pins are a fun medium. It's a little accessory that you can add/subtract to any outfit and/or accessory. I love seeing new and original executions by current pin makers and being inspired.
