pin collection, enamel pin,

For the second part of my pin collection I thought I would share some of the pins I have picked up at craft fairs.

I thought we'd start off with the pins I got Northern Craft held at the Northern Monk Refectory.

Driving the craft revolution with the 'Make Craft Great Again' pin designed by Sean Mort (one of the co-founders of Northern Craft).

In 2017 they commissioned 25 enamel pins to be designed by some of their favourite crafters inspired by the north and creative process. The pins were exhibited in the Northern Monk Refectory and were available to buy throughout the fair.

Check out the Pin Drop designs here or get your own 'Make Craft Great Again' pin here.

Clearly, I struggled to just pick one and also ended up picking up 'It'll be Reet' pin by Finest Imaginary, as long with a few other things!

This pin was limited edition for the 'Pin Drop' but a stunning copper coloured one (which I desperately need) is available to buy here.

Their next fair is on May 12th in Leeds and I can 100% guarantee you will love it. RSVP here. 

The Hepworth Wakefield

Next up is a pin I got when we went to The Hepworth Wakefield's Christmas Market and spent ALL my money. People are so talented!

enamel pin, geoheaven

This beautiful pin is from the creative babes Sarah and Monty behind Geo Heaven. They create incredible 3D printed jewellery from beautiful geometric structures.

I treated myself to this pin because I can never ever choose from their stunning selection, although I think my heart is setting on their conjoined cosmic ball with stunning rose gold chain (here).

Grab yourself a mint icosahedron here.

The final two pins I picked up at Handmade Nottingham Christmas Fair at Malt Cross after lusting at them online for so long.

The pair are from the amazing Thread Famous and as you can imagine, I wanted to buy everything! I finally decided on going with the Sylvia Plath pin (here), the Plath bookmark (here) and the very me - Existential Crisis pin (here)

Also I highly recommend following them on Instagram here for beautiful pictures and book recommendations.


Their next fair is on May 13th in Nottingham, you can RSVP here.
