Calling All Bead Bracelet Designers
If you have design skills and want to put them to work, this opportunity is for you! Thoughtful Impressions and sister company StickyJ Medical ID are looking for beaded bracelet designers capable of creating fashion conscious designs appealing to women shopping for a stylish medical id bracelet. The bracelet designs will need to be 6” in length, including the lobster clasps at both ends, and the cost of the beads used must be $20 or less. For our medical jewelry line, we attach beaded bracelets to a 1 ½” stainless tag on which we engrave the customer’s medical information. Most women with chronic medical conditions don’t want to wear a plain medical ID. Beaded bracelets allow them to feel ‘fashionable’ while still providing needed medical information to emergency medical personnel when needed.
Submitting your design
To submit a design idea, first, let us know that you’re planning to submit a design by emailing us at Design@StickyJ.com. You can also contact us with questions. Then, you should create a bracelet using your design. The sample bracelet should be strung on .019” diameter beading wire and should have 11mm lobster clasps at both ends. The cost of materials should be under $20. Then, send a photo of your creation to Design@StickyJ.com. If we think the design will appeal to our customers, we’ll ask you to send the bracelet to us along with a list of the beads used, where they were purchased, and the cost per bead. We’ll reimburse you for the material cost of your bracelet, and pay you $50 for your design. We’ll also provide you with a royalty agreement. Then, our photography team will shoot product photos, our in-house beaders will reproduce the bracelet, and our merchandising team will list it for sale on our website. Each time the custom bracelet sells, you’ll accrue a royalty of 10% of the sale price. There is no time limit for submissions. We accept design proposals on an ongoing basis. But, be sure to email us to let us know you’re working on a design.
Need Some Ideas to Get Started?
Triple and quadruple strand bracelets are our most popular, with each strand having a unique pattern. And, bracelets with a custom ‘designer’ look are also in demand. Feel free to use pearls, seed beads, and stones as desired. The more creative the better! But, please note that we prefer designs incorporating beads that are readily available for ongoing purchase. Although we will occasionally offer a bracelet that’s one of a kind, you won’t accrue much in royalties if we can’t produce enough bracelets to meet the demand. If you don’t have a source for lobster clasps, we do offer them for sale at our wholesale website — Click Here for Stainless Clasps. Or, you can simply tape up the ends of the bracelet leaving enough wire for us to attach the lobster clasps. We’ll be happy to provide you with the revised length of the bracelet if clasps are not to be included. Just send us a request by email.
