Last month marked the beginning of the Lunar New Year. And to celebrate the Year of the Monkey, TREAT & COMPANY created these gorgeous fire monkey pins.
Each pin is 3D-printed, hand-painted, and locally manufactured and designed in Minnesota. They make a thoughtful and beautiful gift to commemorate major life events – weddings, anniversaries, babies, birthdays – or to treat yourself. (And the classy, geometric designs would work for guy or girl.)
The pins are perfectly sized – you can feel the quality of materials, but they're not too heavy. The crimson color on the fire monkeys is so pretty... I'd love to see one of these worn with a neutral outfit and pop of red lipstick.
A little info from the creators themselves:
TREAT & COMPANY had established a geometric fractal aesthetic for their core Lunar Token collection, and wanted the limited edition to fall in line with them, yet have it’s own perspective. They broke from using a full figure animal and focused on the face to separate it and establish a new iconic system for the “year of” pins. In addition, they used red to identify the year’s element - this year being fire, they gave it a metallic crackled red glaze. TREAT & COMPANY is looking forward to extending the limited edition each year, and calling out its unique features. The Fire Monkey is said to bring creativity, mindfulness, ambition, vibrancy and courage.
The limited-edition Year of the Monkey pins cost $16.99, plus free shipping.
They also offer 11 over zodiac animal pins for $12.99 each, plus free shipping.
I'm a snake, and they so kindly sent me a snake pin that I absolutely adore.
I love that each pin comes with a little description of your sign on the back:
For snakes like me, it reads:
"Intelligent, lively, calm, romantic and curious.
Wear your token to honor your Snake within."
Even more generously, TREAT & COMPANY sent me four fire monkey pins to giveaway on the blog!
