The target of $1,700 will be funding a laser cutter so that I am able to make more commission works for everyone. I have been saving for months but need all your support to make it to the finish line.
I created this project as a fun way to create one-off items just for my customers. I want to make these pieces as special as possible by engraving your name (or nominated name) on the back of each piece.
All Pokemon are possible with none left out, you may ask for shiny, mega evolution, Alolan, even the new generations and variants! I will be confirming everyones orders via survey at the end of the kickstarter and will start the designs straight away.
Have a look at this video to see how I will be making your brooch/necklace:
The timing of this Kickstarter is to have everything ready with plenty of time to ship and have the items arrive before Christmas! This is a great opportunity to get in an easy customised Christmas present.
We have exceeded $1,700! I will make earrings or a pin to match your custom piece as a bonus and thank you for reaching this goal! You will get one pair of earrings or a pin for EACH Pokemon you have commissioned. This will be sent in an organza bag with my business card if you wish to gift it. (The card backing displayed below is just for example so you may see the product clearly)
Just to top that off, we made it to $2,800! I will be ordering special packaging boxes for your brooch/necklace. The box will be a thick white card with my logo printed on the top in beautiful full colour. The final design will be more special than the one shown below as it will feature a magnetic closure and silver inlay.
We have been doing so well that I am making a new goal to reach! Lets get to $4,000 and I can afford to gift wrap all your orders! This gift wrapping features my drawings of the Eevelutions in grey and my watercolour logo sticker seal.
At any point you may add an additional amount to your pledge for one of these new items to be released in my shop at the end of September. I am offering a discount on these items as a pre-release on my kickstarter. The brooches are $45 through Kickstarter ($55 Retail Price) or you can get both for $80, saving $30! The cute Eevelution Washi Tape is $5 ($8 Retail Price). Simply adjust your pledge by the cost of the item/s you like below and I will confirm your order with a survey at the conclusion of the Kickstarter.
The laser cutter is on the way as well as the custom packaging. I have updated the funding goal for if we reach the $4,000 mark below. By supporting this Kickstarter you are allowing me to purchase my own laser cutter, materials and new packaging for future projects. I will share all of the neat new things I will be creating with your help on my Instagram @lostkiwibird.
Just remember Kickstarter will NOT charge you until the campaign has ended and will only do so if we reach our goal, so it's basically a PLEDGE NOW, PAY LATER system~ You will be able to change the amount of your pledge at anytime as well!

Risks and challenges
I will face a few small challenges like setting up the laser cutter, but I have addressed the problem by getting in to contact with technicians that can help. I have also addressed the potential issue of having to design so many pokemon, but I have started the designs already and have given myself plenty of time to complete the requests.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
