JXL is a fun and vibrant accessories brand for women who love to POP out of the crowd. We create unique, lightweight statement pieces that encompasses the beauty, style, and rich culture of black women! Celebrating confident women around the world that like to make bold statements in life and with their jewelry!
Hi my name is Jasmine and I'm a self-taught, hardworking, kicka** artist, navy wife, and mom of two. Earrings are my absolute favorite accessory wear! I LOVE them so much! (The bigger the better.) They make me feel so feminine and bold. I feel absolutely naked without them! After being fed up with only having the option of silver or gold hoops and heavy earrings that didn't last to choose from, I decided to start making my own. I want my pieces to encourage every black woman (woman) that wears them to feel more VISIBLE and BEAUTIFUL in a world that refuses to see them. Now that I have over 9 years of earring making experience under my belt it's time for me to expand my business and develop new ways to create our beloved ear candy and I need your HELP!
I've always been blessed by the fact that my hands can produce whatever my brain can imagine. But a girl can only hand make so much! So over the last year I studied the art of graphics software so that I could convert my sketches into computer designs. I currently send all of my designs offsite to be cut, then all of the pieces are sent back to me to be hand-assembled and to become a finished product. Outsourcing my work has been a great learning experience but it comes with it's share of challenges like increased shipping cost and low inventory.
We need your help!
In order to expand JXL and to keep our online store stocked with amazing and unique creations we need your help with funding our very own laser cutter aka POPmachine! With our own laser cutter we'll be able to create the earrings (accessories) of our dreams. Implementing new lightweight materials and giving our customers the option to purchase more unique items that won't always go out of stock and a chance to purchase custom pieces once again! In the future JXL would like to expand to providing amazing jewlery boxes, and other fun things that we can't wait to share in the near future.
The funds raised from this campaign will go DIRECTLY to:
* a kicka** laser cutter
*high quality acrylics and other lightweight cutting materials
*kickstarter processing fees / production cost
Jasmine has worked really hard to create special pieces for this project! No girls jewelry collection would be complete without her favorite pair of JXL earrings! We also listened to our POPtribe when they asked for more custom pieces! We hope that you love the new designs that have been created just for you!
P.S. EVERY PLEDGE COUNTS!!! Thanks for stopping by🙌🏾
If all goes well and we pop pass our goal of $1,500 and raise up to $5,000 we'll unlock our brand new POP STANDS!!!
If you guys keep going ham and we reach a new goal of $10,000 we'll be able to purchase rare acrylics and possibly get a prototype made of our jewelry box.
More goal goodies will be added as needed!
Risks and challenges
When you're trying to make big moves it comes with its fair share of risks and challenges! Although we have many years of production and shipping experience we've never worked on a potential order of this magnitude. Thankfully, we've eliminated as many of the risks as possible by having extra hands and systems on standby.
We've also created a timeline for delivering your goodies in a timely manner! If we have any delays in production that can set back our timeline for shipping, you'll be notified immediately.
So hold on to your edges, as we get ready to make your ears POP!!!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
