Kick Start My Heart:
I’ve been designing enamel pins for a while now. You may remember me from such pins as all of the Maximum Fun Drive 2017 show-specific pin designs. Now I would love to branch out from the popular world of enamel pins into - wait for it - ENAMEL CHARMS! And not just any enamel charm dear reader, a hard enamel charm you can share with the one nearest to your heart: your furry companion. Be they dog, cat, guinea pig, or gerbil - why not share your heart with them? This new version of the traditional BFF charm can be worn around your neck or on your collar, cage, or aquarium.
I basically want to run this Kickstarter as a simple pre-sale of these charms. Meeting the goal will pay for the production of 100 matching charms, packaging, and shipping. Any funding made beyond the initial goal will go to sourcing cute chains & collars to wear the charms, producing more charms (different color ways?), and MORE!
New Kickstarter - Who dis?
I’ve been working for nearly a decade as a graphic designer and illustrator. I paint cats, cute animals, sad animals, more cats, redheads, weird animals, flowers, and did I mention cats? Currently, I work with a variety of clients such as Chronicle Books, Maximum Fun, Meowbox, and Tea Collection. In addition to being an artist, I am a lifelong animal lover - my first word was "kitty." All work is created in Detroit, MI under the supervision of a tiny Griffin I call "cat."

Risks and challenges
The design has already been approved by the manufacturer and I have quite a bit of interest in the design so there should be very little risk. The production time will take up to two weeks and I will add an extra week for cushion. The plan is to ship out all rewards mid-June. ANY delays or issues with this project will be communicated immediately to all contributors via the updates!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
