Tessell 8 Ltd wanted to create themselves lapel badges. But the brief stated that although their logo is a blue nr 8, the pin should be somewhat quirky.
Therefore we designed and made a 3D modelled lapel pin. The original model for the pin was made with the 3D printer. Which means that the first pin was actually made of wax.
From that, a cast was developed, and eventually, the pins were cast out of sterling silver, oxidized, and top surfaces cleaned, so that they would be shiny.
