These badges are hard metal, with a soft enamel coating. Each badge is 25mm in width, with a silver butterfly clasp backing, and hand painted, (as the enamel is carefully placed in the recesses of the badge by hand). When baked, this leaves a dip, which raises the metal above the enamel. This creates a tactile surface, which adds another nice sensory (touch) element to the pin. If you rub your finger over the badge, it feels like little bumpy bubbles under your fingertips! Tactile awareness and stimulation is just another method of decreasing stress, whilst increasing concentration and creativity. (ref.)
*Meditative, slow, deep breathing has been shown to shift your nervous system to induce a state of calm. These breathing methods have been used to help insomniacs, anxiety sufferers, or anyone who would like to relax and lower their stress levels (Reference studies: 1 & 2). These pins act as a reminder to do just that! Breathe.
