Make your mark!

With the help of Kickstarter, and some very lovely backers, I was recently able to realise the dream of creating my very first enamel pin. So, fresh from the success of my first project I've been inspired to have another crack at it.

Backing card and pin concept.

2018 marks 100 years since the first women in the UK won the right to vote. As a passionate voter myself, I wanted to create a new pin to mark the occasion. Where better to draw inspiration than from the powerful legacy of The Suffragettes, after all I wouldn't be able to make a single mark on any ballot paper without their courageous campaigning.

The Pin

  • 30mm
  • Hard enamel
  • Black Nickel Plating
  • Rubber Clutch
  • Comes attached to an illustrated backing card.

For my design, I've particularly drawn on the iconic purple, green and white Suffragette colour palette, which was often also reflected in the jewellery they wore at the time. Throughout history we’ve seen how important it is to speak up to effect change. So when you may be feeling frustrated and overwhelmed with the state of things, I hope this pin can help pick you back up and encourage you to keep making your mark. Just a small X in a box can be a powerful tool!


Stretch Goals

If I exceed all my expectations and reach an amazing £400 I will unlock another pin design for my fab backers to choose from.

 The Pin (if unlocked)

  •  30mm
  • Hard enamel
  • Rose Gold Plating
  • Rubber Clutch
  • Comes attached to an illustrated backing card.

If I manage to go and completely smash all my goals, after picking my jaw up off the floor, I will look at adding even more exciting stretch goals.

The Patch (if unlocked)

  • 70mm
  • Embroidered
  • Iron-on

I've put my thinking cap on to come up with a brand new stretch goal for the campaign. Variety's the spice of life, as they say, so I've ventured into a whole new medium for this one – patches. My concept design above is for an iron-on embroidered patch, using my 'Deeds Not Words' design as inspiration. The merrowed edge and embroidered text are in a nice dark purple, so they really stand out.

New patch and pin combo reward tiers have now been added.

Super Backers

For those super backers out there, you will be able to pick one of my hand embroidered Suffragette necklaces from those available in my Etsy shop at the end date of this project. A few examples of which you can see below.

Extra Treat!

As a thank you for helping me fund my campaign all backers will now get a free 'Deeds Not Words' cross stitch design with their rewards. An example of which you can see below that I turned in to a necklace.

 

Funding

The money raised for this project will go towards the production costs, postage and packing and Kickstarter fees.

Risks and challenges

If funded, I will be getting my enamel pin made through a UK based company. So once the funds are released by Kickstarter I will send my design off for print approval and then production, this process should take roughly 6 weeks. The pins will then be shipped to all my backers.

There could be potential delays in production which could affect shipping times. I would keep my backers up to date and inform them of any changes.
