ABOUT THE PROJECT: In the mid nineties, when raves were still rare and few, there was a movement called P.L.U.R. (Peace. Love. Unity. Respect). Handmade pony beaded bracelets were traded symbolically, as a sign of friendship. We are regenerating the style by adding the L.E.D lights. Kandi Beadz (www.kandibeadz.com ) has a tax id and has been registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office and are designed in Brooklyn, New York. 

Through fostering connections between young people in the dance community we hope to create enough friendships, with the ultimate purpose of building a stronger, drug free society. 

Average pledge is $25 (you will get  rewards send to your address).

Our goal is 1,250.00 (twelve hundred fifty dollars). We hope to meet this amount and hopefully have some extra to promote through social media sponsored ads. The pledges  you make will go towards meeting our suppliers' demand for minimum orders; creating the final merchandise; packaging and shipping the rewards; perfecting the website; incorporating; printing of catalogs/brochures/business cards/packaging, paying for vendor spots, permits and organizing a dazzling company launch evening with a live DJ & some cute give aways. 

THE MESSAGE:

The bracelets contain letters P.L.U.R.  -  it is a message of Peace, Love, Unity and Respect (or the name of a customer).

PEACE ☆ Letting go of fears and living at peace with oneself, one another, and the planet

LOVE ☆ As one learns to love oneself, he/she is able to love everyone else unconditionally

UNITY ☆ A mutual bond is formed resulting from the love and peace experienced

RESPECT ☆ Because of peace love and unity, one can accept others regardless of their beliefs or background

These rave bracelets have resurfaced in the recent years and KANDI BEADZ is reinventing the original style, by adding 7 blinking hours of L.E.D. (light emitting diode) set with the black light reflective acrylic & glass pony + alphabet beads. The beads are growing more and more popular each year, among the party goers. 

We are creating the multi-colored accessories, that are whimsically crafted with LED lights running through a hollow stretchy cord, bedazzled with sized and textured pony beads, emitting shine and color, perfectly completing any look. Each bracelet sports a closure knob featuring a unique design of your choice.

OUR GOALS FOR 2015: 

One of our main goals is to fill a request by Louis Suduaya, a world famous French DJ. He asked me to accommodate promotional merchandise for a big music festival in Europe where he will be performing.

Risks and challenges

Any startup business is running a risk of not lifting off the ground. As optimistic as we are about our products, we are aware that It maybe challenging to promote a product with a "Say no to drugs" message, considering the current state of the today's dance scene environment.
