Fund Raiser FAQs

This is a special fund raising preorder and as such, has a different terms and conditions to a standard Teacup Girl release or preorder. Please read the information on the home page and FAQ before pledging.

Product Information

Teacup Girl pieces are created to be one-of-a-kind, miniature, wearable artworks. Each one is carefully designed by Australian artist, Bonita E. J. Vear, and is set free with the hope of adding a smile and a touch of whimsy to your day. 

Every individual piece is meticulously hand painted and hand assembled with care. As such, they are limited in number and will not always be available for sale. 

Please be aware all products will differ slightly due to variations in acrylic and the nature of handmade, artisan pieces.

Colours will be represented as accurately as possible, but there will be variations on different screens. 

All brooches come with rolling, c-lock safety pin back unless in the small pin category which features an easy to use c-clasp pin back.

Designs come securely packaged in our original Teacup Girl gift boxes, or securely pinned to a backing card with appropriate protection.

Manufactured Items

Teacup Girl is bringing some special items into the shop specifically for this fund raising campaign in collaboration with milkcup studio

These items are not made in the Teacup Girl studio, but with manufacturers in China. We are working closely with trusted and established companies to bring you the best quality merchandise that we can produce.
