What is a cloisonne pin?

Cloisonne or hard enamel pins are the most superior quality lapel pin. They are an excellent choice for recognition type of awards or for corporate promotional events. Cloisonne lapel pins are derived from China and were first developed over 6000 years ago.

The process involves creating a die of your design into copper or brass metal and then an outline of the pin is created with a mold. The colors are hand filled with a glass like mixture. Next, the pins are then fired in a kiln at a very high temperature. This process ensures the colors will not bleed. Each pin is then polished to a brilliant shine and smoothness. The finished product is a high quality pin with incredible detail and color.
