British-based artist Charlotte Philips fuses her passion for tea and Japanese art in her tea-inspired enamel pins collection. Charlotte's pins feature references to famous Japanese artist Hokusai. The illustrations include the 'Great Wave off Kanagawa,' Mount Fuji prints and the woodcut print of Kirifuri waterfall. All of Hokusai's designs have been framed within a pin in the shape of a cup or a pouring tea pot.

These tea-inspired enamel pins are the perfect gift for the beverage enthusiast. Charlotte's pins measure between 1.5'' and 2'' on gold, silver or copper-plated material. The market for enamel pins has definitely blown up in recent years as independent artists optimize their art into a wearable piece, bringing a quirky and artful twist to a backpack or a jacket.
