Girl with a Pearl Earring Collectible Enamel Pin
Our Pin of the Month released in April, 2019 – “Girl with a Pearl Earring.” Based on my painting of the same title (in turn inspired of course by the Vermeer painting from the 1600s), she was a very commonly requested pin design. She has a slightly higher pricepoint since she contains a couple of special features – firstly, wanting the “earring” to be a central focus of the pin, we selected (after multiple options were tested and this option was the most durable and lovely!) a unique type of “pearlescent” thick enamel appears only on the earring section of this pin! It is a different sort of enamel than the typical solid colours – whirled with iridescent reflective tones. Secondly, since I wanted to add the pearlescent enamel and have it slightly raised to garner more attention, with this specific pin we have had to use a new metal alloy to accommodate the different material – it’s a bit fancier looking, from some angles the metal in the mold (lines, back, etc.) shine a silvery metallic – almost like cloissone (hence the small difference in price). Since of course “Girl with a Pearl Earring” is a shoulders-up portrait-style painting, I finished the edges with some blue & white porcelain-looking swirls, to simulate the Delft / Netherlands patterns popular in Vermeer’s homeland. I painted the original pin design for her as an interactive live broadcast up at my Twitch channel! (I sometimes do pin designing up there in addition to my usual paintings, you can check out my channel here).
