I have a new pin collection which you can see HERE
. I had been agonising about whether it was an appropriate time to launch it or not with the current world events.
This collection was designed right in the middle of the Australian Bushfire Crisis for which we created the Koala Pin (Here
), in response to the feelings of sadness and hopelessness that I, and many people around me, were experiencing. And now it seemed we were right back there again but this time the disaster is affecting everyone everywhere.
The idea for the collection came from the hidden meanings often given to crystals; citrine for optimism, amethyst for inspiration and quartz for positivity. Little gems of hope that could be carried with you.
This collection is about optimism, harmony, and creativity - All the good things.
After consulting our online community we decided to go ahead with this launch which is now available, as many people have told us that they "need it right now".
While designing it I was reminded about the importance of hope, and while we can’t control what is happening around us, we can control our response.
I hope this collection is a reminder that even when everything is getting more and more difficult, you still have power:
The power to create.
The power to cooperate.
The power to hope.
All it takes is a little courage to unlock the power you already have inside.
In conjunction with the new lapel pins we've made these designs available in a bunch of other ways too for people who aren't in a position to be able to buy a new pin, such as freebie downloadable prints, colouring sheets, and phone wallpaper.

Stay safe and look after yourselves and each other.
Lots of Love, Tasha and the Jubly Crew. XX
