First, thank you all so much for your support! I'm really excited to get started and have been getting my supplies order ready to go when the project funds. Please help with a last push for publicity - I'd love to get more people on board! Please share this link http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/987346574/new-handmade-cuff-links-collection... it would be great if we could get to $1000! I'd love to have more people following along with the creation process and helping me get this collection off to a great start.
WOW! Thank you all! The project is already fully funded, with 18 days left to go! I'm really excited to get started. I have a new stretch goal of $1000, and I'd especially love to get more backers on board. Your opinions will be so helpful as I work on this collection. If you haven't spread the word, please do! And thanks again for your pledges and support
Hi! I'm Cecilia. I make jewelry from sterling and fine silver and sell it on my website, www.shyviolet.net. I've been making women's jewelry for years, primarily using gemstones and wire, and in the last few years I've added silversmithing to my repertoire.
I'm excited to be launching a men's line, beginning with cuff links. I have a number of ideas - Shy Violet's men's line will be classy, detailed but not fussy, ideal for the boardroom or a fancy night out with that special someone. The perfect gift for the gentleman in your life!
Precious metals are amazingly expensive right now, and that's one reason I've turned to you, Kickstarters! With funding for the additional raw materials, I can get this line off to a great start.
The other, even more important reason, is that I would LOVE your feedback on the line as it develops. I plan to post pictures of each pair of cufflinks, in process and once they're finished, on my blog. I would appreciate your feedback on which designs you like most, ideas you have for new designs, and any other comments you have as you watch the line develop.
I made this pendant a little while ago:
and thought a similar design would be a good starting point for the cufflinks. This one is shiny, but I may oxidize some of them. And it's partly up to you! Let me know what you like.
How can you help? Well, of course I'd love it if you could contribute! Check out the rewards listed to the right for those who can contribute directly. If you can't, I'd still love it if you would share this project!
These are some of the earrings that you could receive:
