About



This project emerged from my desire to craft a collection that merges the human form with natural elements. In my work, I am always interested in treating the human body as an environment and creating surrealist artworks that reflect impossible forms. With Femme Forecast, I have combined the power of women with the power of the weather to create these designs.

This campaign features 4 pin designs (Rain, Sun, Fog, Storm), as well as a collaboration pin and the potential for additional designs to unlock with additional funding.

How This Works


Pledge NOW and pay LATER - BackerKit works as an all-or-nothing funding goal. If at the end of the campaign, we have reached our goal, your card will be charged. On the other hand, if we do not make the goal, you will not be charged a thing!

Designs unlock as the campaign is funded - it's best to pledge early to ensure your favorites get funded!

Freebie Pins



Welcome to Pintopia — a celebration of creativity and collaboration from a diverse group of artists collectively running enamel pin crowdfunding projects from March 28th - April 18th.

Freebie Cross-Collaboration Pins — All 125+ Pintopia creators have paired up with a fellow participant to create two unique pin designs together. If BOTH projects reach their initial funding goal, backers who support BOTH will get the TWO [2] cross-collab pins for FREE! One from each creator. The more pairs of Pintopia creators you support, the more free pins you will earn

I've teamed up with JBlake Design to create 2 great exclusive pins that you can receive! Backing both Femme Fatales and Femme Forecast (this campaign) will earn you both of these pins!*


*BOTH campaigns must reach their initial funding goals!

Campaign Goals



Each design has a specific milestone that must be met in order to be unlocked and available for production.

**Be sure to pledge for the pins that you want!!** Any pin design that doesn't get funded through Backerkit, I will self-fund outside of the campaign! Unlocking these goals through Backerkit will help alleviate any costs at the end of the campaign, so be sure to add all the pins you want to back and explore the "Add-ons" page!



Edit

Stretch Goals


As the campaign progresses and all original funding goals are met, stretch goals will come into play as an additional option for backers.

The stretch goals for additional designs has been met and now all three pins from voting have been unlocked!


Wind, Snow, and Overcast Night are all design available as options when pledging for pins! You can either keep your existing pledge and add these for $10 each via the "Add-Ons" page, or you can change your existing pledge to a higher tier to add more pins to your order!



I'm also offering a free postcard print for all backers who pledge for 3 or more pins! This 4"x6" print is also available as an add-on.


This stretch goal is a set of mini 5 pins in black nickel and gold with white enamel. These pins will be approx. .75" on their largest side and will be available as an add-on!

Additional stretch goals may be created as the campaign progresses.
Edit

Pledge Levels

There are five Categories to pledge at, with each Category representing the number of pins desired. Any number of designs can be chosen once unlocked.

**Make sure to pledge for the pins that you want!** Any stretch goal that is not funded during the campaign, I will self-fund outside of the project! This means all 5 original pins will be available as long as we reach the initial campaign goal of Medusa @$700 funded!

Edit

Add-Ons



Having created several enamel pins in the past, I also have a selection of pins available to add to your order for an extra $10 each!


These are reduced prices from what I normally sell in my Etsy shop, so you can purchase these through here and support the project!

If you missed out on the Early Bird sticker, you can also buy that separately!
