Frequently Asked Questions

A lapel pin is a small decorative pin worn on the lapel of a jacket or coat. It can serve various purposes, from being a symbol of affiliation to a company or organization, to a fashion statement, or a personal expression of style. Lapel pins can be made from various materials, including metals like sterling silver, and come in numerous designs.

To create a custom lapel pin:

  • Design Your Pin: Start with a unique design that you wish to feature on the lapel pin. This could be a symbol, logo, or any decorative element.

  • Prepare the Lapel Pin Base: Use the sterling silver lapel pin as the base for your custom design.

  • Solder the Design onto the Pin: Carefully solder your custom design onto the flat surface of the lapel pin. Ensure that it is securely attached and positioned as desired.

  • Finishing Touches: Once the soldering is complete, finish your lapel pin with any additional detailing or polishing to enhance its appearance.

  • Ready to Wear: The end result is a custom, ready-to-wear lapel pin that reflects your personal style or the intended theme.

To transform a lapel pin into a necklace:

  • Attach a Chain: Use a jump ring to attach a chain to the pin's catch or a loop on the pin itself.

  • Secure the Pin: Ensure the pin's catch is securely closed or locked.

  • Adjust Length: Choose a chain length that complements the design and intended wear style.

  • Wear as a Pendant: The lapel pin now doubles as a pendant, ready to be worn as a unique necklace.
