About

Flips Bracelet - Artistically designed to improve yourself by creating an easy way to maintain good  habits and achieving your goals.

It is unique and natural, handmade and personalized, beautiful to wear and with a hidden agenda to better ourselves. 

The bracelet was designed for self-improvement, shaping out better habits or even simplifying our daily tasks. It can be a great tool for so many people.

  • Everyone motivated to achieve self growth.
  • Children - motivating  them to do different chores or achieve their goals and create good habits. 
  • Autistic children and children with down syndrome - helping them remember the things they need to do through out the day.
  • Elderly people - as a reminder bracelet, to take medications and do other simple tasks that slip their minds.

How does it work?

Many studies have been done to discover the steps of creating a habit that lasts. The amount of time that it takes to establish a new habit or accomplish a goal varies from study to study. Some say 21 days, others 60 days or even 8 months!

So, it is easy to see why we can fail achieving  goals and create new habits. We forget one day and next thing we know, all the hard work we have done till that point is gone! This is why Flips Bracelet will help you win the uphill battle, it will be there to remind you! Plus, you can simultaneously achieve more goals in a day, ultimately creating more healthy habits and before you know it, you see improvement.

Flips Bracelet works because:

  •  It is a reminder you can always see - Most people fail because they easily have too many distractions in their day and easily get sidetracked. Wearing the Flips Bracelet will remind you constantly what you have committed to .
  •  It is a trigger - Numerous studies exist proving that in order to create a habit or achieve a goal you need to follow numerous steps to get results. A trigger is one of the suggestions to help you succeed. The trigger is the thing that reminds you to do the habit you are  trying to establish. Flips Bracelet works as the trigger ! 
  •  It creates Accountability - It is also proven that accountability is a huge factor in achieving your goal(s). With Flips Bracelet visually appealing design, you will always have a conversation piece everywhere you go, which in effect will constantly hold you accountable to what you intend to do. By sharing your bracelet with others, you will verbally continuously hold yourself more and more accountable to your goals. Also, self improvement will spread to others, creating  a tribe of people that strive to improve.
  •  Builds in Motivation. The simple act of flipping your bead after you reach your goal or finished your task will give you instant satisfaction, creating positive reinforcement, which will strengthen the habit over time.
  •  It’s 100% tech-free. The world is glued to their phones enough as it is. Flips bracelet will help achieve your goals without distracting you from them, like an app might do. It will not steal  time from you or distract you in any way. It will blend in with your  joys of life, enhancing it  instead and constantly  reminding  yourself  to be better and healthier while living  your life outside your phone.

With Flips Bracelet you can achieve more than one goal a day, technology free! Easy for everyone to use and beautiful to wear, but the best part is that it works. You get better every day! Just pick the beads with the goals you want to achieve and once you did it, you flip the bead. You see the check mark stating done, Instant gratification!

I have created numerous symbols on each individual bead. I carefully burned each symbol into the wood before the final sealing of the bead. Each symbol could have more then one meaning leaving endless options for creating your own personal bracelet.

Some of the goals and daily habits include hobbies people love, daily health reminders, like vitamins, water intake, and exercising. Others include feeding the mind and body: meditation, just breathe, go for a walk, or get out in nature. We will also create personal symbols, if a very specific symbol is desired.

They make wonderful gifts for everyone that likes to combine beauty with functionality. Also, you could customize a bracelet as a gift for your friend, made with beads picked by you, expressing reminders that you know they could use in their life.

How did I come up with the Idea?

I was always striving to be better and yet somehow always failing. Failing at simple goals like drinking more water, eating a piece of fruit every day, taking my vitamins, exercise, meditate or even relax and read. I failed continuously for years. 

Even if I read and study, promising myself to do better, I was still failing. One night, I tallied up my beverages for the day: 1 cup of coffee, 1 glass of water and 1 glass of wine. The goal for that day was to drink 8 glasses of water! I failed at drinking water! I mean, seriously,  that shouldn't be so hard! I began to really question why I have been failing at such an easy thing to do. The reason: I just forgot! That was it, my day breezed by and I just never stopped long enough to remember.

That is when I came up with the idea of a bracelet. I needed a reminder that I can see all the time, anywhere I would go. I didn't want an app or anything like that. I am beginning to despise how often my phone is connected to my hand! I need something that I like wearing and I can constantly see. 

So, after months of thinking how I could make this idea work, what look and what I need to do to make it work, FLIPS BRACELET was born.

Now that Flips Bracelet took shape, besides the fact that it works, it is  also a wonderful conversation piece, as others admire the unique look and workmanship and the power it holds to change yourself  for such a cute simple thing. I am always happy to share my love for improving oneself and I take any opportunity I have to push someone towards a better version of themselves.

What next?

If you believe in Flips Bracelet and want to begin a new journey for a better you, then go ahead and make your pledge now! You will personalize your bracelet after the campaign. I have included all the information below, for you to better understand what to do to get your own Flips Bracelet.

    You will choose how many beads you need according to your bracelet size and whether you chose the clasp or adjustable bracelet.

Symbols range from specific sports and hobbies to different health reminders like walking, vitamins, diet, yoga, exercise or to feeding your mind like meditation, reading, writing, relaxing, etc.

 If you don't see a symbol that represents a goal you want to accomplish, you can request a custom made bead as an add on, after the campaign ends. 

  After you received your bracelet, the rest is easy! Put your  bracelet on and start accomplishing your goals!

For every  task or accomplished goal, flip your bead. With every bead you flip you create a future good habit, ultimately a future and improved new you.

Help us bring this project to life, for everyone to achieve personal growth, by sharing it with all your friends and family!

I have made the timeline as realistic as possible. The main portion of time is going towards collecting surveys  and waiting for the necessary tools to arrive. With all this in mind I estimated the longer version, expecting that they will arrive on time or even earlier. Also, we plan on making them in Romania. So, I also have to take in consideration the shipping time from this area.

 Budget 

I have been as economical as possible. So far, I have done all the work myself, except the video. That was not my expertise and held me up on my project for months, until I finally came to terms with my need to find a professional. Inspire Pictures  did a wonderful job. They were a great team to work with and a blessing in itself.

Thank you

Thank you to everyone that has encouraged me and helped me get this far!

Please continue to share and spread the word! Each person we can help better themselves, each day, may just create a better and healthier world out there. 

Risks and challenges

I have thought way too long and a bit too hard about all the possible challenges with hopes that I found all the solutions ahead of time.

Being that the bracelets are all handmade, time is my only challenge. Solving this easily would be to go and manufacture them in China like everyone else. But I refuse to do this. I am currently living both in America and Romania. I have many artist friends in Romania that also dream of make a living through art. They have already committed to working with me if this becomes bigger than me.

So I promise, my bracelet will always be hand made by artists, not a factory in China.
I have suppliers lined up for the needed
materials.
So , my only challenge is time. I will work to get every order out as fast as I can make them, but to be on the safe side, I am putting the long estimate of 5 months for all bracelets. As we see the results of the campaign and how we manage the production, I can update the shipping times.
