About this project
"How many times we forget to believe and follow our dreams? We sometimes lose our goals and true values in life without even being aware of this. These handmade pendants made of recycled silver are “infused” with a dream that only if you really believe in, will become reality.
This girl is living her dream in life and with her work invites us not to stop believing in our dreams." - Marinella Rauso @ I Love Green Inspiration

Hi and welcome to the "Dreams in a Charm" Kickstarter campaign. My name is Yin Yin Wu, I am founder and lead designer at LoveGem Studio LLC. I want to share my story and tell you that with perseverance and focus anyone can achieve their dreams.
My passion for jewelry design has encouraged me to often explore new techniques. Creating new designs and fabrication processes has been quite an endeavor. Even though it has been a very long process, the journey has been exhilarating. I am extremely excited to share my "Dreams in a Charm" collection with you!
Hopefully these new exciting pieces will encourage you to begin your journey towards achieving your dreams!
Use of FundsSince the recycled silver charms are handmade in small batches, we can only product very limited number of pieces with the single oven we have now. The funds raised in Kickstarter will be used to purchase more tools so that we can increase the charm fabrication.This will help us grow our sustainable programs, and allow us to bring our charms to the world!

Risks and challenges
In the past 10 months, we’ve designed close to a 100 designs and we selected the final 50 designs for the Dreams in a Charm collection. We’ve also created the mold for individual designs and fabricated the prototypes. The very first charm, the initial “A,” has been worn and tested for months. The result shows that the charms hold great and are ideal for daily wear.
Since the charms are made by finger pressing, we’ve taken a substantial amount of time practicing to ensure the quality of the fabricated charms.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
