About

Here There Be Dragons Enamel Pins

£4,734

179

Welcome traveller 

Please take heed of this warning as these are dangerous parts. Guard your gold, watch the skies. Here, there be dragons.

Update! Sea Serpent added and unlocked!

The Pins

Inspired by dragon myths from around the world the initial campaign features four colourful designs. 

  • Quetzalcoatl - The Feathered Serpent - Aztec
  • Eastern Water Elemental - Asia
  • Dewi - Y Ddraig Goch - Wales
  • Wyvern - Viper of Life - Heraldry

Each pin will be 44mm and hard enamel. Base metal colour is golden. They will all come individually packed on a backing card, making excellent gifts or pieces for collectors.

Stretch Goals

Stretch goals are alternate versions of all designs! These will be anodised soft enamel in a rainbow colour. Gold sections are glitter to really show your dragon's love for treasure!

  • £1800 unlocks Quetzalcoatl
  • £2100 unlocks Welsh 
  • £2400 unlocks Eastern
  • £2700 unlocks Wyvern

Expense Breakdown

60% of the total goal is for production. The remaining costs are for shipping and fees. I have also allowed for a contingency as International shipping is always expensive!

Previous Work

I have already run a successful enamel pin campaign via Kickstarter and self funded another pin design, totalling 6 pin designs with variations already available on my Etsy

Schedule

February - Campaign

Mid March - Funds received from Kickstarter and order placed with supplier.

April - Pins received from supplier, checked and sent out!

May - Pins should all arrive with backers by the end of May, if not much sooner. This allows for some contingency time wise. 

 

Risks and challenges

Having successfully completed one Kickstarter already I feel well prepared and know what I am doing! I learned a lot from my first campaign and have come up with better ways to streamline the shipping time and to make things easier. The only challenges will come if there are delays or problems with the supplier but I have done plenty of research to ensure a reliable production so do not foresee any obvious problems.
