About this project
WHAT IS BORDERLINE?
The Borderline Project is a collection of simple, modern accessories depicting borders of the world. We take the natural contours of the lands you come from and love and laser craft them into highly detailed, stylish pieces of jewelry.
The idea for Borderline stemmed from our love of traveling, as well as an interest in celebrating our heritage. After visiting a new country (or state or island), we would often search for a special memento that would remind us of the new places and people we discovered. When we realized the choices available were ordinary and few, we decided to launch a collection that was cool and unique. And The Borderline Project was born.
Have you ever wondered where someone was from? Or longed to let people know how proud you are to be an American or a citizen of one of the other 195 countries of the world? With Borderline Jewelry, you can now wear a beloved place with pride.
Have you ever traveled somewhere for the first time and fallen in love with its people, its culture or landscape? Now you can collect all the places you visit and adore and add them to our Travel Bracelet. We can even engrave each piece with the date on which you first discovered these new lands.
Whether you want to declare your allegiance to your birthplace, or the town where you grew up, or the city in which you did a semester abroad, or the faraway land from which your ancestors hail, or the island on which you honeymooned, or the country to which you repeatedly travel, or you want to celebrate your country's Independence Day, or show your support for your favorite team(s) in a world-wide sporting event, Borderline Jewelry allows you to share the places that are close to your heart. And did we mention that Borderline Jewelry makes a great gift?
THE BORDERLINE COLLECTION.
The unisex line includes bracelets, necklaces, cufflinks and key chains with many more ideas in the works. The current Borderline collection offers sterling silver (or gold via special order) with matching chains, or leather, rubber or cotton cords. And while our initial funds allowed us to create designs only for Switzerland and America (the two nations of which we are citizens), just imagine your country's, state's or island's map as part of our future collection. (Check out the Borderline website to see some of our digital renderings.)
As soon as we raise our goal of $45,000, we will be able to begin the production of jewelry depicting maps of 30 additional borders. And if we raise more than our target goal, we can produce more. How does your favorite territory make it to the production list? Once we receive ten pledges for a specific borderline, it will move from the Standby list to the Fly list. In other words, it will move from the waiting list onto the production line. This is where you can make a difference. Rally your friends and relatives to help move your border into production! Help spread the word through our share links on our website. Check back regularly for production-status updates.
YOUR BORDERLINE PLEDGE.
If you pledge $50 or more towards The Borderline Project, not only will we be forever grateful, but you'll help secure your country's place in our initial production run. Once we are fully funded, you will receive a survey requesting your style and border of choice. Pledge $125 and be one of the first to grab a limitednumbered collectible piece of your selected territory. Pledge $350, and become a Founder!
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, A HUGE, HEARTFELT THANK YOU...
