Customize Cloisonne Pins
Cloisonne lapel pins are die-struck from a copper/bronze surface because softer metals give a more detailed impression. A die is created to imprint your design into the metal. Next, the outline of the lapel pins and any cutouts are made with a separate mold.
To finish your Cloisonne lapel pins, colors are hand-filled with a powdered glass-like mixture. Each color is fired – one at a time – onto your lapel pins at 1,600 F for two to four minutes. This two-step process ensures that bleeding of colors does not occur on your lapel pins. It also helps colors on your lapel pins to last and keep their brilliant hue.
