10TH BIRTHDAY COLLECTION: CAST YOUR VOTE!

September 17, 2020 16 Comments

We don’t want to make you feel old, but next year, the year 2021, Erstwilder is turning 10! Haven’t we just grown up so fast?

These past 10 years have been a most thrilling journey; designing and creating joyful little treasures for you all to cherish, has been both a pleasure and a privilege. The community that we are proud to be a part of is just so amazing. The reason we are going strong after all these years is because of all of you!

You let us know what collections we should release, and what new products to bring to life - you basically run the show here at Erstwilder - so it only made sense to have you help us plan our 10th Birthday celebrations. A little while back, we put out a question on Facebook and Instagram, asking you how we should celebrate this milestone. One of the most commonly requested ideas was a special edition ‘Fan Favourites’ collection which celebrated some of our most popular designs from the past 10 years, and that’s exactly what we’re doing now.

While your ideas and suggestions are always considered when putting a Fan Favourites collection of brooches, earrings and necklaces together, this one is a little different. Why? Because this time we’re putting you squarely in the ‘Creative Directors’ chair. That's right, you, our wonderful community, are going to get to choose which 10 brooch designs make up the 10th Birthday Fan Favourites collection!

Now, we’ve produced a lot of designs in our time. A LOT! So, we needed to refine the selections back, just a little. The team at HQ painstakingly reviewed all designs year-by-year and managed to shortlist 5 designs from each, 2011 through to 2020, albeit not without some robust discussion and, at times, heated disagreement. (We’re all still friends, we’re just understandably passionate about our favourite pieces too!).

And now, it's over to you.

So, follow the link below, to the poll that’s live on Facebook, to cast your vote for the designs YOU want to see return! You can select one design from each set of five, and at the end of the poll period the ten designs with the most votes will become the official collection!

Plus, for simply participating and having your say you’ll be entered into the draw to WIN 1 of 3 $200 Erstwilder Digital Gift Cards!

*We should also note that it takes us quite some time to actually produce our collections, so you won’t be seeing these for a while, but you will have something to look forward to when we release the range sometime towards the end of 2021!

 And finally, just in case you were wondering, designs will NOT be returning exactly as pictured. As always, they will be recoloured and updated for re-release.

So glad your loyal fans are getting to be a part of the process. It’s great to know we are being listened to. Thank you for bringing back some old favourites as some of us don’t have them and have longed for them so much. Xxx

Sad that the 2020 purple bat didn’t make the list. He was SO popular and people seemed really upset they missed out. Plus, he’d look gorgeous in so many different colors- a deep shimmery blue to match the gold stars, or black or dark purple… 😍

Hi!
I fallen in love with tasmanian devil from PC Collection, whole Collection are stunning.
From older collections most need roxys gun (all space collection in better colourway), old retro things like jukebox, rádio shack, on air…older designs with tapestry and stripes resin. Some vintage theme collection in vintage look will be awesome. Dusty 50’s or colourfull 60’s.
I think some movie collection colaboration sounds good too. Pulp fiction for example :-) or portrets like Audrey, Gina, Grace….

Best wishes

I would prefer to choose 5 total rather than 1 from each collection. There are a couple of selections that I love and would like to chose 2 from and other collections that I wouldn’t buy any but have to chose 1.
