Crowdsourcing Mornings: DeskSpace: Handcrafted Solar System Desk Accessory

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

They have faithfully recreated each of the planets of the solar system (including Pluto, because we still love you!) using the highest quality gem stones that we can lay their hands on. The result is DeskSpace – a unique and innovative gift that is handcrafted with love and polished to perfection. This is a little piece of the heavens, right there on your desk.  Ever since we were children, most of us have marvelled at the stars and wondered what it would be like to be closer to them. DeskSpace gives us that small reminder of our place in the universe with a set of gemstones that are beautiful and stylish. This is a sophisticated gift for anyone with a curious mind, who was once that little child questioning the universe.

If you like to stand out from the crowd and have something that’s just a little different from the typical Newton’s Cradle, DeskSpace is a great desk accessory. With its own rectangular stand, this easily sits on the desk, mantelpiece or window sill, this is so tactile that people will want to pick up each one. Kids will love it too and it might just start a conversation about the wonders of space.  Included in your gem stone set is a high quality, heavyweight book designed to offer up some interesting, intriguing and fun facts about the planets in front of you. With detailed images and a clever design that allows it to nestle inside the box stand, this is the perfect addition to the DeskSpace set and turns it from a curiosity into a practical gift for space enthusiasts.

As of February 22nd, this project has raised $42,000 of their $5,000 goal. This project has 14 days left to raise as much as it can! For a pledge of $99, you will get one DeskSpace set.  For a pledge of $149, you will get two DeskSpace sets.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
