I bought one of these pins a long time ago and I just had to let everyone know how well-made and unique it is. Great with a casual blouse or shirt; I've worn it on a scarf and pinned it to my fabric purse as well. No one who sees it has been able to resist asking about it.Read More
It is bigger than the picture; I am a petty person, it may not be wearable for me. It is an excellent piece of art. It will be in my collection.Read More
Something cute to add to a coat. Get lots of compliments.Read More
What a unique and terrific piece of jewelry. It was much larger and more colorful than it appeared to be on line. Could even be used as a hanging ornament, mounted on a bulletin board or added to a wreath or collage for any bicycle lover.Read More
This is a whimsical Pin that always makes me "smile". I loved it instantly. The only disappointment for me was that it was made from very thin wire which makes it very fragile and that I understand because it is handcrafted, but I still love it! I hope Overstock will continue to bring its customers more designs.Read More
