"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
U. S. Constitution, Amendment 1


The First Amendment is, perhaps, the most important in the Bill of Rights and more than 226 years on, it remains the subject of continued interpretation and intense debate.  The First Amendment is arguably more important now than ever.

In 2013, we began making the First Amendment pendant to highlight the importance of this precious set of protections that is near and dear to our hearts.  In 2015 we updated the pendants to the interchangeable magnetic design that we still offer today.

This year, we've decided to release a limited edition in 24K gold. Able to be worn as either a magnetic pendant or lapel pin, only 100 total of this golden design will be made.

We made one.  It's fantastic.  You'll love it.

A little about the design: Just like the original pendant, we've kept the design subtle and small intentionally. It's both a reminder to the wearer and a conversation starter. We chose a non script, sans serif typeface in nested circles for a little extra pop.  The year is noted along the backtrim.

Risks and challenges

Risks are minimal.

The trial and error phase is already completed - so it really is just a matter of funding and pushing play on the process we have in place. The design is ready to go and our supply order is ready to be submitted.

As soon as this project is funded, we will immediately move forward with full production. Creating one in advance of launching the project has allowed us to not only nail down specifics involved in production of the product, but has also enabled us to get a firm handle on packaging and shipping requirements. We anticipate a timeline of approximately 4 weeks for production, packaging and shipping. Answering your backer surveys in a timely fashion will help us to stay on track in getting rewards shipped to you.

We have some supplies on hand and our timeline allows for minor shipping delays for the remaining supplies. Backers will be notified immediately in cases of significant challenges and will be otherwise updated on a weekly basis.
