This beautiful hard enamel pin depicts a small green octopus in a bag full of water. It was originally designed as part of a multi-pin collection. The collection depicted seven different aquatic animals, each in their own little bag!
The first pet I ever had (that was not a family pet) was a little goldfish that I won at a school fair. I was so happy bringing him home in his little plastic bag! That iconic memory was the inspiration for this pin collection.
For those of you who were wondering, I named him Valentine and he lived a good seven years after that. He helped foster my love of all animals, not just the furry ones.
Please understand that as an adult I am not in favor of living creatures being used as prizes, nor am I advocating for people to go out and bag animals from the wild. I wanted to join my warm memory with my love of so many different aquatic creatures and create these whimsical pin designs.
1.5 inches tall
Two posts/clutches on the back.
Silver colored metal
Please note: that this pin is available in two quality grades: Firsts and Seconds. Firsts are the highest quality and have no or very minor imperfections, while Seconds have imperfections that could include low enamel fill in some areas, scratches, or other such imperfections, but they are still beautiful pins! I actually prefer Seconds for everyday wear on my messenger bag.

Lovely little octopus! Its just pretty and fluttery! The plastic bag is perfect, and looks real. I've seen copies but I wouldn't bother. This artist is the best! I love that its green, and I love all the detail. And I love the childhood memory behind it, the memory that I have too! Thank you so much! And thank you for the fast shipping!
