After the successful creation of my first enamel pin - Cat Totem (currently available on my Etsy shop), I knew it was high-time to create a Saluki Totem enamel pin based off my own artwork and larger project - The Totem Project.
This beautiful pin was modified from my Saluki Totem artwork, originally created in watercolour and coloured pencil. It has been custom designed to suit the requirements of creating an enamel pin but still maintains the unique line-work of the original piece.
The first colour option to be created will be 'Eclipse' a stunning black and gold colour combination voted as most popular by a recent social media poll.
If we reach our campaign target 'Eclipse' will be produced and head out to all campaign supporters!
Our goal is to create 3 designs in total - 2 of these are stretch goals! Let's see if we can smash all three!
If we're successful in meeting our stretch goals than the next most popular colour variant will be produced and available as an option for people to choose.
Stretch Goal #1: Lunar
Our second most popular design based off our social media vote is the lovely cream saluki, if we reach our stretch goal of £800 then the cream saluki will be made available to all backers!
Stretch Goal #2: Celestial
If we manage to get to £1200 raised then the unique 'Celestial' design featuring a smooth Saluki will be made available to all backers of the project.
At the end of the funding cycle if we have made our campaign target I will reach out to all backers for their shipping information and production will begin!
If we reach stretch goal 1, then all backers will be asked which of the two pin options (eclipse or lunar) they would like based on the quantity they purchased.
If we reach stretch goal 2, then all backers will be asked which of the 3 pin options (eclipse, lunar or celestial) they would like based on the quantity they purchased.
- February: Kickstarting!
- March: Backers are contacted for pin preference and product totals are established.
- April: Production (est. 4-5 weeks)
- May: Shipping!
Risks and challenges
We have worked with our supplier in the past and have been super happy with the end result. You can see the Cat Totem pin on my Etsy shop (see above link) for reference of how beautiful these pins become upon production.
We will be working closely with the supplier to ensure top notch quality of each pin design. Slight tweaks to the design may be made to ensure they can be reproduced to the best quality. Anything major will be communicated to all backers of the project prior to decisions being made.
Being the owner of two online Etsy shops I'm familiar with shipping requirements and estimates, shipping out the pins upon receiving them from the supplier will be the most time consuming part of the project and it is here where delays may occur due to unforeseen circumstances, however due to the small size of the pins I'm confident this will go smoothly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
