Who are we: Swab and Bearing, is a newly started business that creates handmade nautical inspired jewelry. Our mission is to provide eco-friendly jewelry and accessories that are fun, easy to wear, and affordable.
Why we need you: This summer 2011, Swab & Bearing will be available to the public. Currently I'm designing every piece by hand in my apartment in Chicago. With your help and support I will be able to outsource local production help, purchase better tools and natural materials, design and launch a website, and finalize the Swab & Bearing logo and branding details. I'm so excited and invested in this brand, and I want to prove that you can be fashionable and still be responsible about the environment.
What makes us different: My inspiration for Swab & Bearing is rooted in my love of the ocean, and my passion for the environment and wildlife. In each peice I try to incorporate as many natural materials as I can such as hemp, all natural twine, and different types of boat rope. My ultimate goal is not only to create quality jewelry but to also promote a "green" lifestyle.
Remember, every contribution helps. All donations will be greatly appreciated and go the materials and production of Swab & Bearing. Please take a moment to check out my video.
I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
