About

Hi I'm Angela and welcome to my Kickstarter project!  I'm so excited to return with another Kickstarter in a series of Kickstarters I have planned for my Birthstone Goddesses collection!  For my previous Kickstarters, my fans helped to create a Birthstone Goddesses coloring book and the first pins in a set of 12 enamel pins inspired by this same project.

For those who don't know me, I'm the artist and author of Angelic Visions, a howto book that teaches readers how to paint fantasy angels.  Now, I'm working on a body of work called the Birthstone Goddesses.  Each goddess embodies a month of the year reflecting the folklore, flowers, and birthstones for her respective month.

The entire series of Birthstone Goddesses!

You can keep up with the BIRTHSTONE GODDESSES project and the future plans I have for it at:

WebsiteTwitter | Facebook | Tumblr | Instagram | PATREON |

Mockups represent pin concepts. Final products may vary.

There will be 12 pins total, one for each Birthstone Goddess, but to make this project more manageable, I am breaking the entire set of enamel pins down into 4 total campaigns, each one representing a season of the year.  This campaign features the 2nd set of pins, the GODDESSES OF AUTUMN, the Ladies of September, October, and November!

By pledging to this Kickstarter, you are locking in a special pricing of $13 per pin!  After this campaign, the pins will be listed at $15.

Did you miss out on the first set of pins, the GODDESSES OF SUMMER?  Find them available for Pre-Order in my Etsy shop!

Here's a video of how the GODDESSES OF SUMMER pins came out!

Pin Specs

MATERIAL:  The GODDESSES OF AUTUMN pins will be HARD ENAMEL pins made with the cloisonné method, which produces a superb finish with resistance to scratches and damage.  They will be created with high polished gold plating and include metal clutches for the back.

Sandblasted Gold - Areas of the pins, such as the headpieces in September and October and the spots in November's lace trim, will be accented with a textured metallic gold.

An example of the sandblasted gold effect on the pins.

SIZE:  These pins will be 2 inches (50mm) at their longest dimension.

 IMPORTANT NOTE!  Shipping will be charged outside of Kickstarter via my fulfillment management system (Backerkit) using the lowest rate available for shipments with USPS.  Tracking will be included in the cost of shipping, but insurance will not be included unless specifically requested, which you can do so via private message here on Kickstarter.

The cost of shipping is NOT included with your pledge and will be collected after the campaign via Backerkit!  Instructions will be sent via email after the campaign has been fully funded and completed.

Why is it so expensive to ship the book outside of the US?  Unfortunately, the coloring book is 9x12 inches, which makes its shipping container constitute as a large package, which drives up the cost of shipping.  I apologize for the inconvenience, but this is simply out of my control!

If you'd still like the coloring experience without the hassle of shipping, I have the book's entire collection of line art available as downloadable digital packs and single pages here.

International Backers must be prepared to pay for customs fees, as I will not be providing refunds or exchanges for those who later refuse or abandon their packages based on being unable to pay the dues or any other reason that results in package refusal.  All international packages will be marked as 'merchandise' in accordance with shipping laws for commercial purchases.

To get a better look at the art of the prints, check out the Birthstone Goddesses gallery

NEW Original Art Tier Added!

Check back next Thursday (10/17) after that for the Lady of November art bundle!

To claim any art bundle, pick the appropriate Reward tier OR switch your current pledge to the appropriate tier.


STRETCH GOAL #1 - Shimmering Pearlescent Enamel - $3000

If we unlock this goal, we'll be able to add a special touch to the pins!  I'll add a shimmering pearlescent swirl texture to Lady of September's disc and Lady of October's veil and dress!  GOAL UNLOCKED!

STRETCH GOAL #2 - Goddesses of Autumn Sticker Set - $3200

If we unlock this goal, I'll add 4 inch vinyl stickers of the pin designs to all tiers with physical Rewards!  They will also be made available in the Add-On shop for those who want to pick up some.

STRETCH GOAL #3 - Little Gem Goddesses of Autumn Sticker Set - $3400

If we unlock this goal, I'll add 4 inch vinyl stickers of all three Little Gem Goddesses of Autumn to tiers with physical Rewards!  They will also be made available in the Add-On shop for those who want to pick up some.

STRETCH GOAL #4 - Metallic Upgrade for Stickers - $4000

If we unlock this goal, I'll add a metallic foil finish to the Goddesses of Autumn 4 inch vinyl stickers!

You will be able to add the following Add-Ons to your Kickstarter items via Backerkit after the campaign is over.  Miss your chance to get a pin or want to purchase extra gifts for a loved one? You can add these items to your Kickstarter items once the campaign ends and is successfully funded!

Some of these items marked "Kickstarter Add-On Shop Exclusive" will be available ONLY for Kickstarter Backers after the campaign!  Instructions on how to purchase these Add-Ons will be sent via email after the campaign is successfully funded and completed.

See more art from the prints and products below at the Birthstone Goddesses shop.

If the sticker sets from the Stretch Goals are unlocked, they will be added to the Add-On shop as well.

With your help, we can make this collection a reality.  I can't wait to begin!

IMPORTANT PROJECT DISCLAIMER!

While I will do my very best to contact each and every one of you about your items via Kickstarter and via emails sent using Backerkit, if you have not paid your shipping and claimed your Kickstarter items (and any Add Ons) via Backerkit within 3 months after the surveys have been sent out (a fact I will announce here within Updates and via email), your items will be declared 'abandoned' and will be returned to my inventory.  No refunds or exchanges will be given after this point!

Please be sure to use an email for Kickstarter that you actively check and to check your Updates regularly, as I will not be held responsible for abandoned items!

Risks and challenges

The proofs for the pins have already been APPROVED and are prepped and ready to be manufactured as soon as I have the funds. Books are also already printed and in stock and ready to go. Other products, such as prints, can be easily printed based on the demands of this campaign.

Shipping estimated to begin between end of November and mid-December. I will do my best to get them out by the holidays, but I can make no promises! Backers will have a final chance to upgrade their shipping addresses before items are sent.

Any delays will be communicated through Updates. I will provide an update at least once a month with a status on this project or when important milestones are reached and/or I need Backer responses.

I have experience successfully delivering previous Kickstarters which involved enamel pins, coloring books, prints, and many other items and have a fulfillment management system in place to aid fulfillment in going smoothly.
