Show your support for genetics research or commemorate all the hard work and time you've spent with your favorite laboratory flies with this cute little pin.

Each tiny Drosophila fly was hand traced in black pigment ink onto a sheet of shrink plastic from my original pen and ink ACEO. The eyes were colored using a red pigment marker. Each charm was then carefully cut out and baked until shrinking to about a quarter of its original size.

Silver-colored nickel-coated safety pin is 2" (5 cm) long. Each fly charm is approximately 0.5" (1.5 cm).

Charms were sealed with a clear coat of acrylic sealant to protect the artwork and give it a semi-gloss finish. They are attached to the pin with silver-colored jump rings.

Comes with its own tiny hand stamped gift box.

Would make a great gift for any sort of entomology, genetics, nature, or bio geek or a gift for yourself. Although the charms are sealed, I would avoid immersing the pin in water to keep it looking nice.
