About

Nature's Nightmares: enamel pin set

£1,252

80

In 2018 I started a small online shop called Forensics & Flowers, it is the home of my botanical and peculiar digital illustration. This pin set is inspired by my fascination with the darkness hidden within the beauty of nature and its wildlife. Each pin features a pairing of a poisonous animal and a poisonous plant on a victorian, tarot style backing card. 

All pins are hard enamel silver plated. The £350 goal is to create 1 pin, the other 2 will be unlocked if we reach those milestones.

Follow me on instagram @forensicsandflowers for more updates. If these pins are successful I will be adding more to this collection :)

Please keep reading to find out why I chose the featured fauna and flora!

The pins

Pins might slightly vary in colour and shape once made.

Where your money goes

The main bulk of cost is the physical pins themselves. The goal also factors in kickstarter fees, customs fees and handling. A small cost goes towards packaging and the backing cards.

Estimated Timeline

If funded this is the timeline I am estimating for this project:

MAY: Kickstarter runs

JUNE: Pins ordered

JULY/AUG: Pins made and recieved received

AUG: Pins sent out

If there are any hold ups I will be sure to let backers know via kickstarter and instagram. 

Risks and challenges

I have made 6 enamel pins to date so I am quite familiar with the process and troubles. I have concluded that the main risks are these:

1. The pins are delayed if the factory is busy and so will be shipped out a little late
2.The pins are not up to my standards and have to be remade (this is unlikely)
3. I am a one woman show with a day job and so if I get a lot of orders shipping might take me a little longer than expected
