This kickstarter will help fund the production of:
- 1 - 1' Hard Enamel Common Cents Penny Pin
- 4 - 1.5' Hard Enamel Lucky Cats
Pins feature a butterfly clutch and a hole so you can pick and switch your charms whenever you choose!
Charms all measure approx 1.5" and are all gold in colour and Hard Enamel. They feature a 4 cm gold coloured chain and lobster clasp.
How do you pick just 4 when you have so many different ones? You don't so here are the stretch goals featuring some new animals! These charms as well measure approximately 1.5" and gold in colour. All the pieces in this collection are hard enamel and these will also have a 4cm gold chain and lobster clasp.
A fun project requires fun packaging and the Common Cents Village with Penny Lined Streets is no different! There are a few different Store fronts, they will be selected at random when packaging, but I will do my best to mix up as many as possible for backers with multiple charms and pins. You will be able to store your not in use charms and pins in your own Common Cents Village. The sidewalks line up seamlessly next to each other and there is foam beneath them and behind the store front to keep your pins and charms in tip top shape.
Once the campaign is complete, if we are successful, I will send out a backer survey within a week of completion. This is when you will select which designs you would like. I will then submit numbers to the manufacturer. I expect to receive them early / mid March. All items will then need to be quality checked packaged and shipped to all the backers. I suspect they will be out before April but I like to give some wiggle room just in case as I would rather deliver early than late!
All Pins and Charms will be sent with tracking.
When Am I Billed?
You are not billed by Kickstarter until the end of the Campaign and ONLY if the Kickstarter is successfully funded.
Can I change my pledge?
Absolutely, anytime during the funding period you can log into your kickstarter and change your pledge amount.
Well I'm doing it.. a KICKSTARTER! Why? Because I love these so much and I think this is perfect platform to help me get them to you! I love art, I love pins and accessories and this is my perfect mash up! With a little luck you will find the Lucky Charm that speaks to you. Now because I love talking to myself so very much, truth, I'm gonna ask and answer some questions i think you may have.
Well because you love the concept / design that would be the first reason! They are offered here on Kickstarter at a reduced rate as a Thank you for helping me realize this goal and being part of the process of bringing them to life!
No, this is my very first Enamel Pin & Charm. I have done acrylic, I have worked with wood, forever being slightly intimidated by enamel but always on my to do list. I have had many many designs over the years I considered but none felt perfect like these do. So these will be the first in series of lucky charms to suit everyone.
To help bring as many designs to life as possible and get everyone who wants one their own lucky charm. I am an Independent artist which of course brings limits to what I can invest before I need to see a return. This often limits what I can stock and can't offer everything for everyone all the time. I didn't want that to be the case for this set. Doing a first enamel pin can be intimidating for any artist / designer. Doing it publicly with fear of failure even more so! So I wanted to take you on the journey from concept to creation for both those who have already been amazingly supportive of my work and those who are just finding me.
The funding will help cover Manufacturing Costs as well as Packaging and gives me the opportunity to offer more of them than I could without it.

Risks and challenges
With any manufacturing there is always the risk of delay. I have extended my shipping time to attempt to accommodate that potential so it can be addressed. Although designs have been approved by the manufacturer for creation there is a chance that the design may need to be changed. Any changes would be minor and not affect the over all design of the Pin & Charms. Minor Colour variations may occur due to monitor differences.
Although I have not made these before I am working with a tested Manufacturer that has come to me recommended by another awesome pin designer. Although I don't foresee any issues I will absolutely keep everyone up to speed on all of the goings on from order date to delivery date!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
