Our Story

AdorkaBows & AmunetGFX are here with a brand new, limited edition collaboration pin set! These two artists have completed 5 pin set collaborations and are joining forces once again for their largest collection yet: Guardian Planet Crystal Pin Set!
AdorkaBows & AmunetGFX present Guardian Planet Crystal Pin Set. Includes photos of all six pin designs, planetary symbols for Mars, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, a Crescent Moon wand and a flowering crystal, all with floral elements and colored gemstones on each.


AmunetGFX designed this beautiful set of pins with inspiration from our favorite magical planetary symbols and her own love of natural shapes, combining planet power with elegant floral aesthetics.Β 

Each limited edition pin features a planetary symbol, a flower, and a corresponding gemstone. All pins have a dated backstamp and two posts for secure attachment to your garment or display.Β 

We brought this project to BackerKit for our first public debut! πŸ₯³Β

ADD ON INSTRUCTIONS:
  • When you make a pledge you will see optional add ons. Click the add on box and your pledge amount will automatically increase to cover the desired add on.

  • NOTE: the add on *only* increases the amount pledged. You will not see any other indication the add on has been selected. This is a system still in Beta so if you have any questions please reach out so we can help! β™₯
  • If the add on system is confusing or not working you will have the ability to add on during the survey process at the end of the campaign.Β

Sticker Set Goal Unlocked

UNLOCKED! πŸ”“ STRETCH GOAL 2: Stickers!

Stickers unlocked at $6k! 😁
These silver satin finish stickers are printed on durable, high opacity adhesive vinyl. They are about the same size as the pins and can be used both indoors and outdoors because they are water resistant and UV-coated for durability. ✨πŸ’ͺ🏻😀

Stickers are automatically added to all pledge levels. If you pledge for a set you get the full set of stickers, too! Individual pins will come with their corresponding sticker.

Backing cards and boxes with silver metallic foil print


UNLOCKED: πŸ”“ STRETCH GOAL 3: Display Cards and Boxes for Sets!

Backing cards and the box is unlocked!
This goal gave us these beautiful foil display cards featuring more lovely line work by AmunetGFX as well as boxes for people who pledge for the complete set.

Individual pins will come mounted on individual cards and sets will come mounted on a larger card inside the collector's edition, fabric lined box. All the printing on these cards is a shimmery silver metallic that really pops on the matte black of the heavy cardstock. 😍✨

Set two includes Neptune, Uranus, Pluto, Saturn, Key, and Rose designs

UNLOCKED: πŸ”“ SUPER STRETCH GOAL: Second Pin Set! Unlocked at $12k

Many people have asked us about the other planets: Neptune, Uranus, Saturn, and yes - even Pluto!
We've unlocked the second set which includes these four pins as well as Key and Rose.

PLEASE NOTE: These will be *completely new designs* from the earliest stages and we likely won't have time to have physical samples made before the end of the campaign. If you pledge for these pins please keep this in mind. β™₯

UNLOCKED: πŸ”“ Locket Pin Unlocked at $14k

This pin unlocked when we hit $14k. The community voted on the design.
Because this pin is a stand alone addition to the project and not part of a set you will have to modify your pledge with an additional $28 in funds to add this pin to your order. It is selectable as a single pin or single pin add on.


Final trio of pins, a mirror, time orb, and space sword, unlocked

UNLOCKED: πŸ”“ Three Talismans Pin Set Unlocked!!

Backers voted in the most recent poll to go for it all! Three more pins! Originally scheduled to unlock at $20k we've unlocked them EARLY for LAST CHANCE!Β 

The final THREE pins are inspired by a sword, mirror, and magic orb. The Mirror pin is actually a mirror!Β 

Get a few for yourself! We're doing special pricing for this final goal. You can add on to an existing pledge with $80 and get the whole group of 3!

Just want one? Add on or pledge the regular single pin price of $28.

Add to your pledge today and share this project with your friends to help us finish strong!Β 

Timeline

Timeline: October 28, 2002 is when the campaign ends. From October 29 until November 5th we will issue surveys. November 11 is the approximate campaign payout date for funds collected. Manufacturing will run from November 14 until February 2023. Fulfillment process will begin in March 2023.

BackerKit is a pledge now and pay later system. Support our project now to help us reach our goals and you will only be charged at the end of the successful campaign. You can adjust your pledge throughout the campaign if needed as more rewards unlock.Β 

After the project ends, we will have to wait a bit for funds to be collected and sent to us. The pins will go into manufacturing soon after the campaign ends! It usually takes a few months for pins to be made and sent. There can be some unexpected delays in production or shipping sometimes so we've try to build those potentials into the timeline.

When the pins and other materials arrive to Sarah, she will personally start sorting things and packing orders one at a time, by hand, carefully so as to reduce the chances of mistakes. Depending on how many orders there are this could take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. For this reason we anticipate orders to be fully shipped in early 2023.

Thanks so much for your patience & support! πŸ₯°βœ¨

After the Campaign

AdorkaBows and AmunetGFX have a two year history with 5 successful pin collaborations and over 400 sales funded and sold directly through the private Facebook group AdorkaBows Select Bow-Peeks. This new project works with established processes and manufacturers to offer the best possible quality and timeliness of these pins that we can provide. Samples of the first set have already been made and currently being adjusted so they will be ready to immediately go into full production after the close of the campaign.

Thank you for your support!

The creators of the project will be in regular communication during and after this project to keep everyone up to date on fulfillment, including if the project is delayed due to circumstances beyond our control such as international and domestic shipping delays or supply chain issues.Β 

Sarah from AdorkaBows is handling the fulfillment portion of this campaign. She has a nearly 10 year history of successfully meeting customer expectations with excellent communication and customer service. Should the scope of this project exceed Sarah’s personal capacity for fulfillment she is prepared to reach out for additional assistance as needed. Β 

Testimonials

Here's some words from our previous clients about past projects and fulfilment by AdorkaBows and AmunetGFX. We greatly appreciate the time these folks took to write these messages for us. β™₯


"Sarah and Amunet make beautiful pins and run their preorders smoothly. I've participated in three so far. We're kept up to date every step of the way from start to orders arriving to homes. Sarah is kind and always open to answer any questions or concerns we have.   One of the preorders actually required major changes. Sarah included detailed images of what was wrong with the manufacturer sample, what needed to be changed and why. They both refuse to settle on anything that isn't breathtakingly beautiful and well made, which is one of the many reasons I continue to be a customer." from Alec G, Facebook.com/Kegokec



So far, I have backed 2 of Sarah and Amunet's projects, but I have watched many of the other projects come through with flying colors and I've definitely regretted missing out on one or two! The quality of work produced truly creates a fantastic collector's piece and the style of work is like no other.  Sarah is an absolute powerhouse when it comes to running these campaigns. She always plans in advance for potential delays and issues, and is always transparent about what's going on with her backers. On top of this, Sarah's human element is fantastic: when the boxes on her last campaign were delayed because they were coming from a newly war-torn Ukraine, she doubled down on her order and told them to take their time.  I am eager to back Sarah and Amunet's next project and am certain I'll be on the lookout for the one after that, too! - Aimee, AimeeCozza.com
