EDITION: LIMITED EDITION of 250 SETS (Dia de los Muertos Set of five pins)
AVAILABILITY: General Public
RELEASE: April 10, 2017
Size: Each pin is approximately 1.5″ inches * 3.8 cm
The “Dia de los Muertos” set contains five pins, the very first of my Limited Edition Pin Sets. Only 250 of these sets were ever made, and the mold is subsequently destroyed so that no more can possibly be made. Dia de los Muertos (or Dia de Muertos) is of course the Mexican holiday “Day of the Dead.” Some of my family comes from Mexico, I have visited there many times and the Day of the Dead is a continual inspiration to me spiritually and as an artist. A tremendous amount of folk art out of Mexico centers around the holiday. This set of five pins comes as shown on a numbered postcard (out of 250), and yes – you get all five pins! “Milagros: Corazon” is based on my painting of the same title, the “Sugar Skull” and “Sugar Skull Profile” are loosely based on other paintings of mine. “Vela Votiva” and “Dia de los Muertos Fairy” however are two brand new designs I created solely to be used on this special pin set!
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 pins 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!
