What a Great First Week of Crowdfunding!

Well that’s one week of my big campaign down and I have to say, I’m absolutely overwhelmed by the positive response I have had from everyone. The campaign is already 30% funded and I am just blown away by all of your support. Thank you so much to all the people who have generously donated so early in the piece and also to all those who have taken the time to share my story with your friends. You’ve really helped me to build momentum and I am so grateful.

I have had some great responses to my new Andamooka Opal Microscope range and even had my very first student sign up to one my classes which is so exciting. I can't wait to get the space up and running so that I can begin to share my passion for the handmade with our community.

For those who haven’t had a chance to take a look at the campaign page yet, I have some pretty darn tempting rewards available to say thank you for your generous donation. In addition to exclusive pre-release entry to my brand new jewellery classes, on offer are a range of lovely Silver Bar Studs, handmade by my dear friend and talented designer, Laurence Coffrant, as well as beautiful handmade Porcelain Paper Cups made by none other than my awesome Mum. To get your hands on these and many more great rewards as well as my eternal appreciation, all you have to do is press the big 'Help Claire' button below and donate to the campaign.

And We Have Lift Off!

After months of burning the midnight oil, my campaign is ready and only moments ago, I pressed that big blue button to start raising funds for my awesome new jewellery teaching space here at Karma & Crow. The campaign runs until early December and if you have missed my last few posts, I have designed some great new jewellery to say a very big thank you for your generous donations.

As part of the big push to get my campaign off to a flying start, I have been working with a very talented videographer, Amanda Davis from Wild Light Projects to create a beautiful introductory video about what I am trying to achieve.

The 'Help Claire' button below will send you straight through to the campaign. Please donate whatever you can to help me set up a great space and if you can’t donate, I would love you to share what I am doing with your friends. Your support means so much to me and will help me make our beautiful space here at Karma & Crow even more vibrant.

I'm so happy with my campaign video produced by Amanda from Wild Light Projects.
