Wm Spear Design seeks to offer the finest possible enamels both as to quality of production and excellence of design at reasonable prices. Some enamels using this technique have survived for thousands of years and given reasonable care, your pin should provide pleasure indefinitely. Wm Spear lives and works in Juneau, Alaska.
