Check out our wide selection of earrings, bracelets and charms!

Earrings:

Our signature earring, The Lisa comes in two styles. Our patented orthodontically themed bracket earrings are available with colorful bands (Lisa Classic) or with cubic zirconia (Lisa B). Made from high quality, hypo-allergenic surgical steel, our earrings are safe for most wearers, even for those allergic to nickel. Available in silver and gold toned brackets. All earrings come in our signature aqua and coral gift box.

 Why We Need Kickstarter

We have been very successful reaching orthodontists, our first audience, with our classic earrings, the Lisa . However, we realize that beyond the original concept, girls of all ages, brace and non-brace wearers, love our jewelry.  We have added new materials (e.g. cubic zirconias, hand-woven and leather bracelets, and charms) and have been reaching out to new markets (example: athletic teams are finding customized logos enthusiastically received by parents, cheerleaders and other fans). We have received excellent coverage in local press (both television and print); however, we know we need to reach both large AND small distributors in greater numbers to accomplish our goal of growth into retail.

AmericasMart Atlanta, in Atlanta, Georgia, is the largest gift and apparel show in the United States, drawing buyers from all over the world. This annual event is the best opportunity for us to reach many large distributors in a central location. The funding from Kickstarter will enable us to be an exhibitor at AmericasMart Atlanta and display our extensive line of patented jewelry.

Our project goal is to exhibit at AmericasMart Atlanta in January 2016.

Risks and challenges

At the current time, we believe we have an adequate amount of merchandise to fulfill all of our Kickstarter rewards. However, if demand should exceed supply (a great problem to have) we may face a delay in delivery. If such is the case, we will effectively and efficiently communicate with each of our backers to keep them up-to-date on delivery status. We take great pride in the quality of both our products and our service. We understand that issues may arise and feel confident that if they do, our due diligence process will enable us to immediately address the problem and provide 100% satisfaction for our backers.
