Molds for Shadow Star jewelry

Hello friends! A few years back one of our collectors told me that she had so many of our wall sculptures that she didn't have any more wall space, she said "You're just going to have to start making jewelry!" I thought it was pretty funny but the more I thought about it the more I realised that our Stonecraft Arts designs would in fact make great jewelry. So last year we bought a 3d scanner and started scanning and resizing our sca designs, we then took them to the University to be printed. I pulled molds off of the prints and have been using them to pour waxes which I have cast in bronze or sterling silver. The response has been overwhelming! In fact I am simply not able to keep up with the demand, I litterally have stores waiting for me to produce enough stock to supply them! So I am starting this campaign to raise enough money to have the foundry make several centrifugal rubber molds of our designs, so that I dont have to spend days and days pouring and resculpting all the waxes. An added bennifit of this procedure is that we would also be able to cast them in pewter, which is much more cost effective.
Ideally I would like to have these molds made in the next couple of months so we can put them in production for our spring and summer shows, including the Colorado Renaissance Festival.
To those of you who are already collecting, don't worry I still intend to keep the limited edition pieces , well... limited. I intend to create two seperate product lines. The limited edition designs will only be available in limited quantities and only cast in bronze or sterling. These are the ones I will continue to sell at our art shows, galleries, and high end consignment stores. The other line ( which is what I need the centrifugal molds for) will be for wholesale to stores and other less exclusive venues like the Renaissance Festival.
It will be huge boon for us, opening up new sales avenues and freeing up my time so that I can spend more of it sculpting new designs!
We are offering some great incentives for $20, $40, and $100 donations; and we will send a 10% coupon to anyone who danates $10 or more redeamable on either Stonecraft Arts products or Shadowstar Studio jewelry (once it is in production)!
