This is a fairly simple project to get started on, and I'm pleased for it to be the first for my store, Gingerpeach!
I've actually already made some pins before, for friends. I learned a lot about the process and what it takes to manufacture and mail out a bunch of pins. I sold 50 in my first run.
Now, with your help, I'd like to make more that I could keep in stock in my store.
I'm starting with a completely redesigned Die Mad About It pin. With a silvery metallic border and glitter on the pink, it'll be an eye-catching statement piece whenever you wear it!
These pins will be hard enamel with a silvery-metallic outline. It will take about three weeks from start of production to get to me, and depending on how many are sold, another week or so to you. If that timeline changes, I'll let you know immediately.
Break It Down!
Here's the breakdown for what your money's going towards:
Like I said, pretty straightforward. :)
Gingerpeach is a LGBTQ+ and woman-owned business. Mostly, I make my own jewelry, including a bunch of awesome pride flag rose earrings that I sculpt by hand. I've also made home decor including pillows, coasters, fine art prints, and planters. But recently, I've REALLY gotten into enamel pins, and wanted to share my love with my friends. Well, it took off really quickly and now I'm hooked and want to make more!

Risks and challenges
I suppose the risks would be things that are outside of my control, such as production getting delayed. I'm letting a third party handle making the actual pins, so if something goes wrong there, I would have to handle it. I've had a really good relationship with my manufacturer so far, though, and haven't had any giant setbacks working with them. Now that I've said, Murphy's Law is going to prove me wrong, hah!
Turns out I was right - the pin design I wanted to use has been scrapped due to circumstances outside my control. But I've got a plan B and stretch goals as far as the eye can see, so I'm confident that we can weather out any additional challenges our way!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
