To celebrate the love of our favorite planet, inspired by the spirit of our favorite show Steven Universe, we have designed the Beauty of Earth Illustrative Pin series!
Each Illustrative Pin Set features two 1" hard enamel pins linked with 3" chains, OR a 2.25" JUMBO pin, intended to be mounted on a beautiful accompanying 4x6" mini-print. You can display them in a frame!
Pictured below are photos of the actual pins mounted on their mini-prints! We produced a sample run of 4 designs because we had a very specific vision for the colors. We are pleased with the final result, and this kickstarter will simply determine how many more we order.
Blooming Roses Set
Set in rose gold metal, a classical Rose links to a Korean Rose.
Flexibility, Love, and Trust Set
Set in silver metal, a thought takes the form of a butterfly and links to a wedding hydrangea.
Growing Things Set
Set in gold metal, a hopeful sunflower links to a beloved pumpkin.
The Question Set
Set in gold, this 2.25” pin captures a moment of agency and love.
The Jam Buds Set
Set in rose gold, the 1” shield links to a 2” sword.
The Pride Set
Set in gold, this jumbo 2.25” pin celebrates the persistence of diversity alongside a 5x8” holographic print.
The Beyond Binary Set
Set in gold, this jumbo 2.25” pin celebrates non-binary identities alongside a 5x8” holographic print.
How to Choose Your Pins
Just count how many pin sets you want, and choose a backing tier for that number of pins. At the end of the Kickstarter, we will send out a survey so you can tell us *which* pins you wanted. Surveys go out shortly after funding, so please check your email in late June or early July!
Pictured below is our concept art. You can see that the outfits changed in one scene! ;)
Timeline & Specifics:
June: Kickstarting Campaign
July: Surveys and Funds received
August: Pins produced, insured, and quality-checked
September: Mailing begins, hopefully to complete by November. Pins will *not* be mounted on their mini-prints to prevent damage during mailing. Pins and prints will simply be sharing a bubble mailer.
Risks and challenges
Risks are minimal. Since most of the designs have already produced samples with a reliable manufacturer, we are very confident that the product will be high quality. We have also learned so much from the high order volume of our last kickstarter, Pride Pets, and have budgeted excess time for shipping just in case this kickstarter is a smash-hit. Our experience makes us confident in fulfilling orders.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
