About this project
I’ve got a passion for all things creative. My forte is making jewelry with nail polish. My goal is to build up my inventory to about 100 pieces. I’ve got a notebook full of ideas waiting to come to life, I just don’t have the supplies.
Wait, how do you make jewelry with nail polish?
The jewelry is made from a glass piece that is painted with nail polish and sealed. Everything is handmade. I cut the glass myself and fire it in a kiln, grind it to the perfect shape, then fire it again to polish it off. Next comes the nail polish. Nail polish has been a passion of mine for well over a decade. I’ve been painting my nails since I was a wee little girl. I’ve taken my nail art skills and applied them to jewelry making. I hand paint each piece. Some are done with a tiny paint brush, other patterns are done with a stencil and stamper, and some are just done with pretty glitter polishes. It’s a fun and unique way to create jewelry. I quite enjoy it.
What do I need the money for?
It’s all for supplies. Here’s the stuff I need:
-Sheets of clear glass
-Necklace backings, earrings backings, blank ring settings
-Display cards/display rack
After doing some research and finding the best possible deals, everything came to almost exactly $600.00.
Why do I need all that inventory?
I’m looking to grow my art into something bigger. This means making changes and increasing the popularity of my current Etsy shop (mandybowchic.etsy.com), getting my jewelry in the shops of local merchants, and getting more exposure to make the MissMandyPete brand grow. The foundation for all of that is having a good sized inventory to work with. With your help I could be on my way to making my dream a reality.
Don't forget, if you pledge, you're only charged if I meet my goal. If my goal isn't met, you get to keep your money and I don't get anything (and we will all be sad).
Thank you for checking out my project! If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
