White Gold Keepsake Business Startup Kit to help you on the right track to start your baby and breastmilk, memorial or keepsake and memento jewellery business. The White Gold level package includes a selection of items available from Keepsaker Supplies with a recommended retail price of over £3140! It’s ideal for people who have made a few pieces already or those taking one of the Advanced Jewellery Courses or attended our Studio Training Sessions, or perhaps you are already running a keepsake business and are ready for the next level with a website of your own and want to build on your equipment and settings.

It’s enough to make at least fifty five pieces straight away – twenty beads, ten rings, and twenty five necklaces or dangle charms. Make as many variations as you can and take lots of photos, sell some to friends and family before ordering, to pay for the kit, then use the photos on social media to get more orders.

Enough consumables to send out 200 kits for your clients to post in their breastmilk, hair, fur, cremation ashes, umbilical cord etc. You will use the tools and moulds in the kit moving forward, buying settings as needed when your clients order. You have enough tools and equipment to speed up your orders, tools you would usually need to buy anyway. The website is a slimmed-down version of Tree of Opals, my flagship store and includes your own watermarked stock images to get you started.

Here’s a spreadsheet with the business startup packages in comparison (coming soon).

All Round Kit Includes

Breastmilk Speciality Kit

Memorial Speciality Kit

These are the tools and settings we have used at Tree of Opals for the past 6 years from suppliers we trust and items made in-house. For advice on making keepsake and memorial jewellery see our blogs here. The White Gold keepsake business startup kit is suitable for breastmilk and baby keepsake (breastmilk jewellery, first curl, placenta and umbilical, baby teeth and Christening flowers etc) but also as a memorial for your clients (cremation ashes jewellery, hair and fur, funeral flowers) and all other occasions and elements such as wedding dresses, wrapscraps, petals, earth, sand etc.

You’re welcome to make swaps, within reason. Please discuss prior to ordering!

Worldwide Sourcing Guides

We provide the basic personal protective equipment or PPE (vinyl gloves and dust masks) but highly recommend that you invest in some more heavy duty equipment such as safety goggles. You can find links to buy these items in our country specific Worldwide Sourcing Guides here – including the UKUSAAustralia and Canada (more countries coming soon). You can find all the items you need to send your clients a kit for their ashes/hair/cord/breastmilk, which is something we highly recommend. The sourcing guides also give examples of office equipment such as printers and label makers, and packaging items like polishing cloths, jewellery boxes, business cards.

White Gold Keepsake Business Startup Kit Extras

You will need to provide the following yourself, these are items many people already own:

    • PPE (see above)
    • sending kit components (see above) such as stamps
    • order packaging supplies such as jewellery boxes
    • a freezer for breastmilk
    • a hob, saucepan and bowl for a bain Marie to preserve breastmilk
    • a logo, social media accounts and website (Etsy do not allow breastmilk jewellery, they do allow hair and cremation ashes pieces but only for pets, not humans)
    • moulds for other items you wish to sell, such as findings you purchase elsewhere

Stock Images

You can download the stock images after your order has been paid in full and we have added them manually to your account. They’re royalty-free and Creative Commons 00 so you’re free to edit and use for your own purposes but we ask you to let your clients know in the image description that they do not necessarily reflect your own work and are for guidance only. You can Photoshop in your own work if you know how. More coming soon – feel free to submit your own royalty-free CC00 images to benefit the community, so long as you are happy with no attribution required, which means that someone using the images doesn’t have to credit you for the photo.

925 Sterling EcoSilver

The silver in the settings of the White Gold Keepsake Business Startup Kit is a minimum of 925 solid sterling EcoSilver. Please see our blog on Types of Solid Silver which explains the care instructions for the silver and the metal content.

Pro tip – at Tree of Opals we like to make the client two charm beads or cabochons with their elements (ashes, hair etc) at the same time. Remove both from the moulds and send the client a photo to check they’re happy and offer them a choice. Let the clients know that you will return the second one free of charge as a spare, and set their favourite with a core. Over half of our clients ask for the second charm to be set, which you may charge £20 for doing. So it’s always worth buying an extra core just in case!

Costing Keepsake Jewellery

Over at Tree of Opals we sell charm beads with hair for around £70 (80EUR/85USD/120CAD/130AUD appx) and sets of them down to around £50, plus occasionally up to 30% off for large family orders, wholesale (funeral homes and crematoria, I used to do 30% off for 10 pieces or more for a breastfeeding group) or black Friday deals etc. The very cheapest I would sell a charm bead for would be £25 as a mystery piece/mystery order addon or for someone who wanted a second charm bead set when you’ve already made two. The profit margin on that is high enough to cover my overheads (websites, payment processing fees, my admin manager, moulds etc) and support my family.

Of course, you can sell charms for £15, and I have seen them that low, but only with silver plated cores. Clients will happily pay extra for a solid silver setting on any piece. We also sell glue-in charm inserts and a set is a little less expensive but they do not fit all the way through the core and will need to be glued in. This will take longer and occasionally they can fall out. These cores provide the most professional option and will set your business above others using glue-ins.
