Featured Pin #16 – Wolvergreen

We’re sticking with a comic theme this week and had a tough choice for our featured pin. Ultimately the Wolvergreen V2 Hard Enamel Pin by ZIGvrt came out victorious.

Featured Pin #13 – Call It a Draw

It’s only a flesh wound! Our featured pin this week comes from Clay Grahamart. It’s hard to choose just one from Clay’s shop but this Monty Python Black Knight hard enamel Call It a Draw Pin takes the win (this time). It comes as 5 different pin pieces, each in an antique silver. The main torso pin even has a screen printed chest. This pin doesn’t come cheap at $25.00 but can you really put a price on happiness? I didn’t think so. Pin measurements posted below. Visit Clay Grahamart’s Shop for other fantastic pins and don’t forget to bring your wallet. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

  • Torso: Double posts, 1.75″
  • Legs: Single post, 1.5″
