[Looking4] Lapel Pin


#1

Hi Folks -

I have a customer looking for a lapel pin with a marijuana leaf.
Here’s what he’s looking for:

“Do you know where I could find, or perhaps have made, a
fine-quality pin, of the sort you’d put thru a denim jacket’s
pocket-flap, which features a marijuana leaf? It could be silver,
gold or cloisonne (with the leaf in green, of course), or maybe
some other attractive metal, niobium or. Maybe a half-inch face,
not much larger. I’d like the leaf to be fairly detailed, and the
piece should be fairly sturdy with a reliable grip on the pin.
Google has not been useful; a lot of trinkets, most too large, or
else pieces for piercings, which isn’t what I want.”

Does anybody know where he might be able to find one, or,
alternatively, could any of you make one for him?

Thanks in advance!

A lot of us could make one of these for you, you just have to pick
out an artist to make the marijuana leaf for you. I am a former
porcelain/Art Clay artist gone Lost Wax (sculpting in wax gives me
better control of the detail)…and then cast the leaf in Silver,
Gold, etc… Casting the piece allows you to take that same Leaf
Casting and make earrings, charm, pendant, as well as your pin.

Check out my Blog, I make a lot of small realistic leaves, orchids &
flowers plus show the pieces being created from start to finish,
which is pretty cool (in my mind).

Uh, any head shop in the US? Ads in the back of magazines sold at
mainstream book stores in support of his interest?

Often such ornaments are marketed as “Japanese Maple Leaf” designs,
which are visually very similar, and avoids some local ordinances
concerning “paraphernalia”

Have them web search using that term and see if any of those items
will do the trick for them.
