Once Upon a Woodland: a Dangle Tail Enamel Pin Collection

£5,514

Hi friends, 

My name is Evy, and I'm an artist inspired by whimsical wildlife and colors. Together with members of my Pin Club, I've come up with a cute a collection of happy woodland pins with dangling tails that I'd love to make into real things! :)

Update: all unlocked! The designs will be hard enamel and available in black nickel and in gold plating:

The base set in black nickel plating.

The base set in gold plating.
The base set in gold plating.
  • This project helps raise the initial funds needed to make the designs into real life pins! The initial goal of the campaign will fund the fox pins and stickers.
  •  You will not be charged until the campaign ends on June 3rd, and only if we reach our funding goal. If you pledge, you have the option to cancel at any time before the Kickstarter ends.

The concept: two pieces (body and tail) are held together by a connector/small chain.

  • The bodies will have two rubber backs for extra support
  • The tails will dangle freely with no backs
  • All pins will be made in hard enamel
The bodies for all the pins will be approx. 1.5"(38mm). The Bear, Badger, Owl and Hare will have 0.7"(17-18mm) tails, the Red Fox and Otter a 0.85"(22mm) tail and the Red Panda a 1"(25mm) tail.

Downloadable bonus:

Every backer will receive a downloadable mystery kit with stencils and steps for making a display banner for our new pins, as a fun thing to do while our pins are in production :D

  • May - June: Kickstarter runs
  • Early June: Payments are processed and surveys sent. I begin production of add-on items.
  • Mid to late June: I receive the funds from Kickstarter, and place the order with my pin manufacturer.
  • Mid to late July: I receive the pins.
  • July/August: Pin rewards are sent out on their journey to forever homes! :D

I've put August as the delivery month in case we run late, but if all goes to plan I'm hoping to be sending these on their way to new forever homes in late July :)

One of my favorite things about running Kickstarters is to share the production adventure with those who made it all possible. Below are a couple of videos I made for my Galactic Reef Kickstarter. It's no secret this project had its fair share of surprises, but in the end we finished slightly ahead of time, and created a beautiful collection of pins and stickers together <3 

Thank you so much for stopping by my campaign page! :D

Risks and challenges

This is my fourth enamel pin Kickstarter, and together with running a pin club this has given me a lot of experience in having pins manufactured and fulfilling rewards.

Rewards are shipped untracked. If you'd like your reward to be sent with tracked international shipping, please add £9(GBP) to your pledge. I've never had a problem with lost packages before, but it's nice to have the extra security :)

As with any pre-order, the final pins might vary slightly from the visuals. We're working with physical paints, and there's always a chance that the colors will look slightly different in real life than they do on a computer screen. With that said, I've used a lot of these colors before with hard enamel and have absolutely loved the outcome(especially the orange).

The chain illustrated in the visuals is purely meant to give an indication that there will be a chain. The chain color will match the plating of the pin, but other than that it might look different from the visuals :)
