Sold! Pins from Etsy going out the door

Thanks J for the purchase.

These pins are on their way to a friend and artist who is a regular collector of my work. I included some felt scraps and silk scraps in her package.  I will be adding handmade felt and silk paper to the shop soon.

I changed the name of the Jewelry section in Etsy to Quirky Pins/Brooches. They are quirky because they show the personality of my hand.

To select from pins that are left in my Quirky Pins section, go to Esty HERE
