Someone Say Positive Pins ?

Hi and welcome to the latest blog for the new Erstwilder collaboration with talented UK artist Liz Harry.

As you will have seen by now, there are 16 pin badges in this collection. These are not to be confused with the normal pin badges that come along side resin brooch collections- these are the big brother of those! In fact, they’re so much bigger they are more likened to mini brooches. Reassuringly they have two pin posts on the back of each badge and this does make them feel and sit so much better on your clothes.

If you haven’t heard of Liz Harry be sure to give her Instagram a look-(Lizharrydesign) she does the most cute and happy pieces that you can’t help but feel happy scrolling through her pages. Liz has taken some fan favourites and put her very own spin on them and that is how this gorgeous collection came into being.

Lets have a peek at them in more detail….

Don’t Bottle Things Up

What a lovely message in a bottle! I love this one as it’s a very relevant message at any time and in any situation.
