This little 1 1/2" pins are made from recycled film cassettes. The cassettes were first broken down, flattened and cut into shape. They were then coated with collodion and sensitized in a silver bath. Then placed in a 35mm camera, each plate was exposed and processed. Punched out and varnished with a tiny pin cemented to the back, they are ready to wear! You can buy them here in my shop, or you can purchase them in person at the MOPA gift shop.
