Hi all! Those of you following me on Tumblr and Facebook probably already know about Optimystical Studios' recent art jewelry project, Heroes & Inspirations
. They've hired several artists (including DA's own secondlina
, among many others) to create portrait jewelry of notable women in science, and recently they met their funding goal for the first line! CONGRATS! :cheer:
However, they have more stretch goals in mind... including a line of Women in History portrait jewelry, which includes me as one of the featured artists!
The new line will include such leadership lady luminaries as Harriet Tubman, Wilma Mankiller, Indira Gandhi and Joan of Arc! And that sounds super super cool! BUT... they can only produce the jewelry if they reach their $7000 funding goal. That amount of money will bring a lot of cool perks
along with it, including the portrait jewelry, engraved text on the back of each pendant, and a separate line of crystal pendants with names like "Remains of Oppression" and "Bruised But Not Broken". That is totally badass.
So! If you like my art and want me to get more work- OR if you just want to see some badass, worldwide lady representation on your jewelry, which is always a worthwhile goal in itself- consider dropping a dollar or however much you want to spend into the Heroes & Inspirations Jewelry Project Kickstarter
! Or, barring that, consider sharing this journal, sharing the Kickstarter, or spreading the word however you want! I would REALLY love to see this happen because it's a great idea!
