Sterling Silver, Brass, or Bronze Isopod Pins -- Available Individually or as a Mismatched Pair!
These mismatched sterling silver isopod pins are the perfect accessory, inspired by the often overlooked, but nonetheless charismatic and fascinating pillbug. One pin is crawling along while the other is demonstrating how it got the nickname "armadillo bug." Unique and conversational, these isopods are the perfect size to wear just about anywhere; they look great together as lapel pins on your collar, as scatter pins on a hat or a bag, as a brooch above your chest, or on a tie as a pair of tie tacks — dress up just about any outfit and instantly make it more interesting with a pair of my roly-poly pillbugs! Or, if you only need one, you can purchase them individually and just choose your favorite of the two!
This isopod design can be cast in your choice of solid brass, bronze, or sterling silver; the pin and clutch in the back are base metal. The pin post & clutch lock when pushed together so you know your pin is secure; the clutch has a spring mechanism that is easily pinched to release the pin.
Pin dimensions (antennae included!):
curled isopod: 3/8" x 5/16" (9 mm x 8 mm)
crawling isopod: 7/16" x 5/8" (1 cm x 1.5 cm)
