Be Subtle Pins is an enamel pin Etsy Store I currently run. In 2016 I really loved the challenge of creating a one liner design in the small 1.5 inch enamel pin space. I also just really loved the idea of creating an accessory.
Over time I've built a social media presence with Be Subtle Pins on instagram with 600+ organic followers. That has enabled me to sell my pins at New Profanity on Melrose Ave in Los Angeles, and the consignment shops Shittty Stuff and Leviticus Jewelry. I also participate in trade shows, pin trades and giveaways with other makers on Instagram!

All designs are created in Illustrator and then the vectors are sent out to a manufacturer for production. This business is super fun for me and I am constantly coming up with ideas to create into my next pin or sticker. I've hit over 250 sales on my etsy shop in under 8 months, have 50+ 5 star reviews, and I've traded over 20 pins with other makers. I just love this side project!
