I don’t know if you guys have been aware, but enamel pins have been at the heart of a tchotchke resurgence. I am pretty immune to most fads, preferring to own only the essentials the fashion realm (I spend everything on the home), but I couldn’t resist these enamel pins when I saw them with Jewish iconography. Made by designer Piece of History in Israel, I’ve added these Jewish enamel pins to my store just in time for Hanukkah. They are a serious Bubbe’s bargain too, at only $9 each!
I couldn’t resist the Oy Vey one. This is so appropriate for me since I probably say “oy vey” a hundred times each day.
I like to wear all three together, but the Chai enamel pin definitely can stand on it’s own. I love how juicy the font looks, it is such a modern update of the traditional Chai.
Regarding that last point, I’m thinking of designing specific greeting cards that can have an enamel pin incorporated on them. Wouldn’t that be cute?
