Hi, kittens!  I'm Kiza, the artist behind Natural Minx. 

I'm one of those people - like many of us here on Patreon - who is happiest when they're doing something creative.  As a kid, I tested out mediums.  I wrote a lot of bad fiction, a wrote a lot of really bad poetry, somehow, I ended up with some publishing credits and a degree in English with a focus on Literature and Creative Writing.  (But the degree came much later, I was did a lot of testing other things as a kid!)  I was into painting, and drawing, and even did some ceramics.  I did a LOT of sewing when I got into my 20's, which led me to theatre and almost completing a degree in Technical Theatre with a focus on Costume Design.  I worked for professional theatre and dance groups doing costume design and construction for a number of years, and then had a baby.  (Which explains that almost-degree.  I needed three classes and just wasn't able to get back because...life happens.)  I continued doing costume work for a bit, and that naturally transitioned to making children's clothes, which morphed into making clothes for friend's kids, which turned into it's own online shop.  That was great, and I loved having that creative outlet, but it wasn't what I wanted to be doing for the rest of my life.  Eventually, the stars aligned and I had the chance to - finally! - learn metalsmithing.  And it took.  In a big way.  Mixed with a childhood interest in geology and long-standing love of collecting cool rocks, it makes jewelry!  Even better!

So, why Patreon?  Well, because I really like interacting with the people who like the things that I'm making.  And you guys seem to like seeing the behind-the-scenes stuff.  And chatting with you guys often gives me new ideas to explore.  And all of those reasons are pretty awesome (I think).  So, Patreon. 

I'm looking forward to new ways of interacting with you guys and being able to offer some special perks to those of you who are most interested, and I hope you guys are interested in seeing what comes next! :)

Hey, Thanks!!
$1 or more per month

You might be wondering, "One dollar?  What can that do?"  Well...quite a lot, honestly!  First and foremost, it will absolutely give me warm fuzzy feelings, because I love knowing that you guys like what I'm doing.  Beyond that, your dollar will most likely go towards keeping me in the studio, playing with fire, for just a little bit longer on any given day.  Because a Dr Pepper or a cup of tea goes a long way towards making that happen, and I can absolutely have one of those on hand with an extra dollar. ;)  Though, just to be 100% honest, I might also use the dollar to buy more treats for my cats from time to time.  Because those guys can get pretty demanding.  But, most likely, it will keep me in beverages while I work.  Thanks! I appreciate that!

What do YOU get for your dollar?  Not just the warm fuzzy feeling of knowing that you gave me warm fuzzy feelings!  You'll also get a shout out on the Natural Minx Facebook and Instagram pages!  Extra warm fuzzy feelings! :)

You've Got Mail!!
$50 or more per month only 15 left

Whoa, you must really like what I'm doing here!  Thank you for that!!

As the title of this tier suggests, you get a package in the mail!  Each month that you're a member of the "You've Got Mail" group, you'll receive a package of goodies curated especially for you as a group.  


The focus of the package will change from month to month, as will the collection of things that are included, but will always include a special piece hand-made by me and a handwritten note.  Plus, you'll get an ongoing monthly shout out on the Natural Minx Facebook and Instagram pages so long as you're subscribing at this level.


To allow for special pieces to be created and other goodies gathered, packages will be sent the following month to those who were subscribed by the 15th of the previous month.   (So, subscribe by May 15th and you'll get June's surprise box.  If you sign up on May 20th, you're all set for July's!)


At the moment, packages at this level are only shipped domestically to US addresses.  Sorry, global friends!
