My name is Ayesha and I want to start my own business! I'm looking to raise £1,000 to set up a resin artwork business.
Why am I crowdfunding?
When I was younger, I found my way into the Hospitality Industry and fell in love. Since then, I've progressed in hotels which I've enjoyed so much. Whilst I love Hospitality and aim to stay in the industry, due to Corona things just aren't the same in this climate and I don't foresee them returning to any form of new normal for quite some time sadly! :(
What's my business idea?
I have been wanting something all of my own for years now and taken an avid interest in resin art and the making of resin pieces. For those who don't know what this is, it's a mixture of organic compounds that can be used in many ways; to varnish/coat and protect, as part of models and fixtures, or it can be used to create individual items like jewellery, keyrings, trays, coasters and so much more.
Resin can be used completely plain which is very simple, but what excites me is introducing the use of colours, paints, pigment, glitters and other small items like dried flowers and plants which you can place inside the resin to make beautiful, unique pieces.
My vision is to start a business making and selling jewellery, decorative pieces and small items for the home, with a view to moving up to larger scale items further down the line. This would also involve custom orders and pieces.
Where will the money go?
This Crowdfunder will help me with the basic cost of starting up this business. Along with advertising and the cost of a work space (hopefully in my own home), I need to build a stock of resin, moulds, tools, PPE, pigments, paints, colours and inserts which will be expensive to start up. Once I have this stock, it will enable me to begin making more and more pieces, selling them and then placing more money back into the business.
Thank you and please pledge today!
Like many, Covid has hit my savings hard but I am so keen to get working on this venture and build my business! It would mean the absolute world to me to have help to begin this journey and make something that I can be proud of. If you are able to contribute, no matter how small, I would be so supremely appreciative.
