An enamel pin featuring a baby whale shark, all curled up and having a wonderful day in the deep blue. Is it a whale or a shark? The whale shark is a large, slow-moving, filter-feeding species of carpet shark. They’re incredibly friendly, and I wanted to capture the whale shark’s friendly nature in enamel pin form. These pin badges are made from hard enamel, with a beautiful “sea breeze” blue tone to capture the tranquility of the whale shark. The hard enamel is layered with white screen printed details, and the outlines are completed with highly polished silver plating to form a sweet and lighthearted ocean aesthetic.

About the Artist
My name is Evy Benita, and I am an enamel pin maker and illustrator with a passion for wildlife. I enjoy exploring habitats around the world and learning about the amazing creatures that inhabit them. And I love featuring these animals in my enamel pin designs! Especially lesser known animals who often don’t receive the attention they deserve, it feels really great being able to bring them into the spotlight. The world is full of extraordinary creatures, big and small, and I cannot wait to see what discoveries the future brings.
