The first in a line of 'Pinksie the Whale' men and women's jewellery.
Who is Pinksie?
Pinksie is a thought provoking project which began in London in 2012 with the purpose to teach children to celebrate diversity, be imaginative and assist and care for others.
Pinksie was born from the friendship between six women who believe that individuality and creativity should be nurtured in every child’s learning.
Pinksie's activities are inspired by the “Pinksie the Whale” books about a pink whale who through her adventures overcomes her fear of being different.
Each year the Pinksie team works with schools, artists, galleries and museums, running creative workshops, exhibitions and readings with the added benefit that proceeds from fundraising events go to help chosen children’s charities and to keep funding workshop for free in the school.

These little characters were remodelled from the original Pinksie and the Cufflink part was purchased from a UK supplier: CKB Ltd http://www.ckb.uk.com/pack-of-10-5-pairs-10mm-plate---blank-cufflink-backs-4139-p.asp, some glue and they came out great!
No support or rafts needed.
Next a ladies brooch and maybe a necklace piece?
