Goddesses of Summer Birthstone and Flower Hard Enamel Pins

$3,635

124

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 Kickstarter, my fans helped to create a Birthstone Goddesses coloring book.  Now with your help, I'll be able to create a collection of enamel pins!

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 (also known as the Ladies of the Months).  Each goddess embodies a month of the year reflecting the folklore, flowers, and birthstones for her respective month. 

The entire series of Birthstone Goddesses!
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.
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 GODDESSES OF SUMMER, the Ladies of June, July, and August!

These will be HARD ENAMEL pins of the highest quality made with the cloisonné method, which produces a superb finish with resistance to scratches and damage.  They will be 2 inches (50mm) at their longest dimension.



IMPORTANT NOTE!  Shipping will be charged outside of Kickstarter via my fulfillment management system (Backerkit) and using the lowest rate available for shipments with USPS.  Tracking will be included in the cost, but insurance will not 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.

Estimates are approximate and may not reflect the final cost of shipping, however I will do my best to keep the shipping rates as low as possible!

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.  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 ART COLLECTOR TIERS ADDED!



STRETCH GOAL #1 - Goddesses of Summer Sticker Set - $2700 [UNLOCKED]

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

STRETCH GOAL #2 - Little Gem Goddesses of Summer Sticker Set - $3000 [UNLOCKED]

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

STRETCH GOAL #3 - Limited Edition Pins - $5600 [LOCKED]

If we unlock this goal, we'll be able to create special LIMITED EDITION versions of the Goddesses of Summer enamel pins!  These versions will be created with high polish gold plating and will include dangling Swarovski crystal gems for an extra special touch of shine.  They will come in fancy acrylic cases with velvet and will be available individually or as a set via the Kickstarter and Add-On shop.




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, 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 created and are prepped and ready to be manufactured. I am using manufacturers for the items in this Kickstarter who have come highly recommended by people I trust or who I have utilized in the past. All I need to do is place the order for these products once I have the funding!

TIMELINE FOR REWARDS

- Once the campaign ends, we will wait one week before opening up the Add On shop to allow for credit cards to be settled with Kickstarter. Backers will then have 14 days to order Add-Ons and answer surveys at this point.

- Funds from Kickstarter's payment processors will take 14 days to process. (Happening concurrently while Backers are filling out their surveys.)

- Once cards have been successfully charged for Add-Ons and shipping fees (approx. 21 days after credict cards have been charged by Kickstarter), orders will be placed.

- 1 month of production and prep time (including some extra days for any delays).

- Shipping estimated to begin between end of August and early September.

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 a previous Kickstarter which involved coloring books, prints, and many other items and have a fulfillment management system in place to aid fulfillment in going smoothly.
