Gathering help to take my handcrafted originally designed creations to the next level!
I am trying to Take the Next Step with my business and need some help. I make ONLY one-of-a-kind handmade jewelry creations (from start to finish) and sell them.
My mother started teaching me to make jewelery at about age 4 and it has always been my passion. After creating (by my own hand) different forms of jewelry for almost 40 years, I decided to make it a business about 10 years ago. Everything I bead - stranded to beadwoven - is a one-of-a-kind design from pattern to finish! Now, I am tying to take my business to the next level, but in order to do that I must receive some financial backing.
The money raised will be used to update my internet presence including designing a new website, blog and branding. Also there are several new tools and items that I need to purchase in order to 'step-up' my creations. These tools and branding is very expensive.
I hope to put a team together to help me manage my on-line presence and also bring on another beader to help me make tutorials and on-line classes. Many of my designs take between 24-100+ hours to create, so having someone focused on the 'computer' side would help give me more time to bead.
My ultimate goal is to open a retail location that will sell beads, consign for other handmade jewelry artists and also other local art. I currently teach classes, however, I would like to expand that, as well. In-order to do all of these things I must first make my Krafty Max Originals brand something that is even more recognized and established.
THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! ~KM
