RELEASE: PIN OF THE MONTH: May 2017
SIZE: 1.5″ Inches * 3.8cm
Our Pin of the Month released in May, 2017 – “Moth Queen.” She is loosely inspired by an earlier painting of mine, “Moth Queen: Acherontia Atropos.” Acherontia atropos is the Latin name for the “death’s head moth” – a type of moth whose natural colouration appears to display a tiny skull design! It’s a real type of moth (this type of moth also plays as a plot point in the movie “Silence of the Lambs”). In this pin I have exaggerated the skull design, and it is super cute.
Strangeling pins are metal & enamel collectible pins – each is designed by me (Jasmine) personally. I hand select the enamels and put a lot of love & thought into each design. Each pin has two “locking” backs to ensure the safety & security of your pins (so you don’t lose them!). Your pin will come packaged with a backing board & sealed plastic bag, sent in a cushioned mailer. We are always happy to ship worldwide. We will be adding new designs each month, so stay tuned! For questions about our pins or to read more about them, please visit the “Collectible Enamel Pins” section of our FAQ here!. If you are interested in collecting more Strangeling pins, getting discounts, free pins, sneak previews & exclusive rare designs – definitely consider the Patreon Pin Collector tier on my Patreon page here.
