About Femme Fatale

What does "Femme Fatale" mean? What's the story behind this Mythology enamel pin series?


I wanted to create a series of enamel pins representing the most powerful women in mythology. The term "Femme Fatale" originates from France meaning 'deadly woman' or 'lethal woman'. My main inspiration for this whole pin series was the first pin I created of Medusa who is seen today as an symbol for female empowerment. I chose several other deadly/fierce women as a part of this femme mythology series and I'm so excited to share all these new designs with you!

Meet the Femme Fatales


Let's meet all the Femmes you can unlock in this campaign!



  • Medusa- She represents strength, power, and female empowerment. A side story to her curse from Athena is that Instead of punishing Medusa with a head of snakes that could turn men to stone, Athena protected her. Athena blessed Medusa with the ability to defend herself, and her daughters, from men so she would never be hurt again.

  • Aphrodite- She was a woman of exceptional beauty with an allure capable of captivating every God in heaven. All gods feared that Aphrodite’s beauty will lead to rivalry amongst them and might even be a cause of war. Aphrodite is the perfect Femme Fatale for her captivating beauty and the ability to cast her spell to ensnare her many lovers into situations that may be dangerous.

  • Siren- Sirens would lure nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices in order to shipwreck them on the rocky coast of the island. These were the most dangerous creatures from mythology that are the ultimate portrayal of a femme fatale.

  • Succubus-  These are supernatural entities that appear in dreams to seduce men. A femme fatale tries to achieve her hidden purpose by using feminine wiles such as beauty, charm, and sexual allure which makes them the perfect final pin in this Femme Fatale series

Freebie Collab pin:
  • Persephone, the Goddess of Spring and Queen of the Underworld. She was kidnapped by Hades and later became the Queen of the Underworld. The ancient Greeks used this to explain the change of the seasons, the eternal cycle of the Nature's death and rebirth. 

Pin specs:

All enamel pins in this project will be hard enamel, roughly 2" tall/wide. All pins will have a gunmetal finish except for the collab pin which will be a gold finish. All pins will have 2 rubber posts on the back of the pin as well as my backstamp logo.

Pintopia 2024- Free Collab Pins


Welcome to Pintopia — a celebration of creativity and collaboration from a diverse group of artists collectively running enamel pin crowdfunding projects from March 28th - April 18th.

Freebie Cross-Collaboration Pins — All 125+ Pintopia creators have paired up with a fellow participant to create two unique pin designs together. If BOTH projects reach their initial funding goal, backers who support BOTH will get the TWO [2] cross-collab pins for FREE! One from each creator. The more pairs of Pintopia creators you support, the more free pins you will earn ✨

I'm teaming up with my friend @allywe for Pintopia to bring you these 2 free Mythology Goddess pins!

My free collab pin to you for backing mine and Allison's campaign below!



My friend Allison/@allywe's campaign is called "Femme Forecast" showcasing women and the weather. My collab freebie pin showcases Persephone the Goddess of Spring which will go along great with her weather girl pins. Her free pin showcases Nyx, the Goddess of the Night who is another Femme Fatale.   

These (2) freebie collab enamel pins will ONLY be available to all backers who back both my campaign and my friend Allison's campaign at the same time! Click the Femme Forecast banner above to check out her pin campaign!

*Please note, BOTH campaigns must reach their initial funding goals!
