Description of the project:
In recent times we have seen the rise of the trendy steem ring created by some enterprising Steemians and they have done rather well.
Since then, I have been playing with the idea of creating a line of exclusive Steem inspired jewelry for our community and beyond.
I created a survey to gather community feedback and based on the responses by some of our female community members. I decided to create a line of trendy Silver Steem inspired pendants for women. My goal is to create a minimalist yet stylish product. I really hope to create something special for our community.
The main objective is to add value to the steemit community by creating a catalog of Steem inspired jewelry, while bootstrapping a niche handmade ecommerce company.
The Steemit logo is quite adaptable and dynamic. It effectively lends itself to some truly remarkable designs.
We hope our prospective products can be a catalyst for stimulating conversations about Steemit. We hope it can play a role in the onboarding of new users on the platform through an effective marketing campaign.
If this line is successful we intend diversify our product offerings. We hope to create an eclectic line of jewelry to cater to the diversity of our growing community.
The goal is to have the pendants shipped to our initial customers before the 1st of December, 2016.
The pendants will be available for sale on Peerhub, Yaadio and Etsy.
Prototype Design (3d Model) $25.00
Raw Materials $59.97
Customized Packaging $30.00
Shipping Material $5.99
Logo redesign $5.00
- @theprophet0 Donation: 45.953
Total (Estimated) $455
I can get the pendant produced for about $100 - $125 per unit. Hoping for a retail price of about $199.99 the most. It will be a quality piece of sterling silver jewelry ( .925 purity) I also have to factor in costs for packaging and shipping insurance.
