Merry Christmas and Thank You for a Great Year

Thank you all for making this such a great end to the year. With my crowd funding campaign done and dusted, I’ve spent the last two weeks madly working to finish everyone’s beautiful rewards as well as a few custom orders. I’m happy to report that everything is packed, posted or waiting to be collected.

A sea of Microscope Pendants, Rings and Earrings all ready to be set just in time for Christmas.

Round one of the biggest week of packaging ever. Many hours and 64 hand written greeting cards later, my campaign duties are done and dusted.

I am going to be taking a well-earned break over Christmas but will be back by mid January refreshed and ready to go. Keep an eye out for all the exciting new things I have planned for 2018 including the opening of my new teaching space, a big online shop revamp and the official launch of my Interlace precious range amongst other things.

Thank you for your support during 2017 and wishing you all a wonderful holiday season.

Thank You so Much for Making My Campaign a Success!

And that’s a wrap! After a whole lot of preparation and a huge month, my campaign to start up a community teaching space at Karma & Crow Studio Collective has the highly coveted green tick of success. This project has been years in the making and I want to thank you all so much for generously donating as well as getting the word out there. Without you, I could not have made this happen and I am absolutely thrilled and humbled by your support. By donating, sharing my story or supporting me along the way, you have helped me take steps to sustain myself as a maker and contribute to my community in a meaningful way. Thank you so, so much!

Ok, so the green tick of approval is actually white, but it's still awesome!

The campaign has been such a wonderful opportunity to connect with long lost friends, family and students and I have even met some new fans. There are a number of people who helped me behind the scenes who I am so lucky to have in my life (you know who you are) and if I haven’t already thanked you enough, thank you some more!

I can't wait to build on my growing collection of precision tools for my students to learn with. When making jewellery, good tools are absolutely crucial. Whoever said that a poor workman blames his (or her) tools obviously hasn't tried to mitre a perfect corner with a blunt file!

For the next week or so I will be busily chipping away at finishing, wrapping and posting everyone’s orders, then the project can begin. I am elated at the thought of sharing my passion for the hand made with our community. Stay tuned for progress updates and information about the big launch in February, 2018!

Only Two Days Left to Donate. Don't Miss Out!

With only two days left to donate to my crowd funding campaign there isn’t much time to get your hands on some wonderful rewards just in time for Christmas. The campaign is still going strong with funding almost at the 75% mark so please keep those donations rolling in and spread the word. The campaign is all or nothing, meaning that I have to raise the full amount in order to receive any of the funds. With your help, I can make it to the 100% mark and set up a fantastic teaching space here at Karma & Crow Studio Collective

Trouble Shooting

I have had word from quite a few pledgers that they are having trouble donating through the Pozible.com system, particularly when using Paypal. If you have already donated but have not received word from me personally thanking you for your generous donation (either through Pozible.com or Facebook) please contact me as soon as possible so that I can investigate. I don’t want anyone to miss out.

If you have already tried to donate but continue to get an error message, please don’t give up. Try using your credit card rather than Paypal and if you still having issues, please contact me directly. Your donations are absolutely crucial to getting this wonderful project up and running.

There are also a few pairs of Microscope Earrings left through the  campaign site . Avaialble in Andamooka Opal or Fresh Water Pearls which float freely behind glass lenses, these stunners are quite the eye catchers. Photograph courtesy of Bianca Hoffrichter.

Thank you all so much for your donations, shares and support. Please continue to share the campaign with your friends, family or anyone who might be interested. Every little bit counts.
