Hello! My name is Emma (or as most of you know me as, Bilby) and I am an Illustrator from Scotland. I have been working professionally as an Artist for about 8 years now, and have recently began my career Illustrating Childrens Books and Running an Etsy store. With the help of the wonderfully talented EvyBenita, I have managed to put together my first Kickstarter campaign in collaboration with her. ♥
Together we designed Six beautiful enamel pins featuring British Wildlife decorated with Bohemian inspired patterning. I've always loved the boho style, and thought Bohemian Burrows was a rather cute name for a collection of Illustrations- The only problem was deciding what form I wanted to print the artwork in!. I recently had the idea of making this collection into Enamel Pins after seeing the beautiful colours they come in! (Rose Gold, Ahh! So pretty! ♥)
As some of you may be able to guess, Enamel Pins are pretty expensive to have made, you need to order them in large quantities to be able to offer them at a good price, and adding things like glitter or Additional Colours also bumps up the price. I believe Kickstarter is the best way to fund these pins because of the success I have seen with other Enamel Pin projects. If I don't reach my goal nobody is out of pocket and Kickstarter makes the process easy and simple to figure out. We've surpassed the £2000 goal for the full set, and new designs have now been added! ♥

All the Bohemian Burrows pins will have the following details in common:

Risks and challenges
As these pins are made by a factory there could be possible delays that are out of my control, However I have made September the expected due date just to be safe in case there are any delays (They will most likely be here before then!). If the pin you want is not unlocked you will not be able to select that pin design, but you can cancel your pledge if your desired pin is not funded.
This is my very first Kickstarter campaign and first full set of enamel pin designs I have created, but with the help of the wonderful Evy I'm sure she will keep me on track and make sure the process goes smoothly. Evy has had experience running many successful pin kickstarter campaigns, and this one I hope will be no different! <3Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
