Back in January of this year, momomints was contacted by a company in Australia. They were interested in a bulk order of custom sheep keycharm keychains and we were more than excited to make it for them!
The company was actually an Australian beauty brand called Lanolips. Lanolips is famous for their natural lanolin ointment and has been featured in Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, The Times UK, Cosmopolitan, Elle Magazine, Marie Claire, Instyle, UK Harper’s Bazaar, The Telegraph UK, Sunday Telegraph, and Good Health! Boy, that’s a mouth full! You can read more about Lanolips and their story here: http://www.lanolips.com/story/.
We were told that the keychains were ordered as thank you gifts from Lanolips to the media, as a token of ongoing support since the launch of their brand five years ago. Knowing that our keycharms were going to be shared with many others was very exciting!
They had initially asked for 18 sheep charms adorned with yellow bananas, but this request later was changed to the 25 sheep with pink roses.
Making a batch of 25 identical sheep polymer clay charms was definitely a feat! But we made every effort to put in the same amount of love and detail into each sheep to make sure they would individually make great gifts to their future owners.
Each sheep was hand molded and hand painted by us and were completed in two weeks for a rush delivery to Australia!
Seeing a pile of momomints sheep keycharm keychains all packaged up gave us so much joy. We are constantly thankful for the opportunities we have received to create something we love and are absolutely proud of for others to share with people that are important in their lives.
We definitely hope to get more chances to collaborate and create lovely handmade gifts for others all over the world!
