This sturdy, handmade, one of a kind Maple Leaf pin is perfect for the nature lover in your life! 100% handmade, the pin is based on a real MAPLE LEAF that I collected and preserved. After sawing the shape out of solid copper sheet metal, I carefully hammered the pattern of leaf veins on the surface using a chisel-like tool. The copper has been finished with a dark patina and then treated with a clear lacquer to preserve the patina so it is maintenance-free. The pin is fastened with a single nickel pin stem that is soldered on the back.
The pin can fasten to a jacket, blazer, hat, tie, lapel, or scarf. It measures about 1.75 x 1.75 inches (fits in the palm of your hand). The pin ships in a pretty blue and brown gift box. Insurance is included in the shipping price for U.S. addresses.
