About ProtonPins

Sales 4,996
On Etsy since 2015

Birth of Proton Pins....

I have worked full time in product development for almost 8 years. I started out developing gift products, stationery and home decor items for a large company, and found myself anxious to work on designs of my own. It started with calligraphy and typography art prints, and eventually my own love [read; obsession] of enamel pins bled into my art. "Slimer Om Nom" was my first venture in to the pin game, and it has been an adventure ever since! I love being able to create items that make people smile, both professionally and in my personal art, and I look forward to many more smiles in the future!
