What is your GOOD IDEA?:
I want to help create something beautiful to hold the special memories motherhood brings to every single woman. Every story is unique and every woman has their own experience that goes along in their journey into motherhood. I want to help keep that memory and turn it into something beautiful that can be worn closer to their hearts forever. I have come up with a formula that will help me turn breast milk, umbilical cord stumps, placenta, ashes, … into beautiful jewelry pieces. I have been able to create breast milk pendants, earning for myself already and I would love to share this beautiful work of art with all the mothers out there. Toying with the name of “birth story keepsakes”
How would your idea make you COME ALIVE?
Motherhood is how I have come to find myself as a person. As a stay at home mother, I want to connect more with like minded people and stay close to motherhood forever. For a while now I have dreamt of doing a Birth Story Photography but with my own committed life to my children I don’t have time I need to commit to it hence I came up with making (motherhood) jewelries. This will allow me to stay close to something that brings a spark to my soul and also help me create something that will bring spark to all the mothers out there.
How will your IDEA impact our community?:
I plan to use everything local if I can. So I will be working close side with a jeweler in town. All of my orders will be everything local and Mother Earth friendly including packaging. My business will directly impact another local businesses in the area.
What stage is your idea in RIGHT NOW?
Beginning stages. I’ve got the idea down and I’ve gotten the formula down. I just need to finalize my designs and metal part of the jewelry. And someone’s help to design and launch my website. I already have a few costumers too. So I have been be able to turn some of my ideas into art work already.
How would you USE the $500?:
This will help me pay someone to help design and build my website. $500 is a lot at the moment as I am a stay at home mother and my children don’t have the ability to write me a check for working so hard for them!!
What will be PHASE ONE of your business plan, getting it off the ground?:
Website. Business name and cards. Finalizing my designs.
Will be in touch when everything launches! In the meantime, if anyone wants a pendant, keychain or earrings now- contact me directly! firstname.lastname@example.org
