Project Followers,

Thank you for following our project thus far! As we continue to work on creating the best product possible we modify the 3-D jigs as necessary. We have reprinted jigs when necessary due normal wear and tear. As pictured below these are the design of the jigs that hold both the piece being stamped and the stamp itself.

In the past week our company has moved into a local boutique. In the week leading up to the boutique's opening my maker hub consultant worked with me to utilize a dremel to better shine the pieces that I would be selling to this customer. I am still in the process of finding a tumbler to work with, but will have purchased one by Friday.

This week I utilized funds from the MakerHub Kickbox to help fund some of the pieces I will be making for Elon Unviersity's Relay For Life event. 25% of the proceeds will be donated to the cause and I will be making pieces that have the cancer ribbon on them, that I will need to use the 3-D printed jig to properly stamp as well as free-handed pieces that include sayings such as hope, strength, etc.

As a whole the funds and process the Elon's Makerhub has granted Impressions Jewelry Co. has helped us to improve our product, provided us with resources, and overall has helped us to grow.

I hope you continue to follow our project as we venture on this journey to see what else is in store following the Kickbox and stay updated on what is to result later from this experience.
