BAMBOO PINK: JudeFrances Jewelry Founders Launch Direct Sales Jewelry Company
Irvine, California, March 1, 2011 – JudeFrances Jewelry co-founders Jude Steele and Frances Gadbois announce their new direct sales fashion jewelry company, bamboopink by JudeFrances. Partnering with successful real estate entrepreneur and wardrobe consultant, Debbie Millar, bamboopink by JudeFrances intends to fill the gap in the direct sales jewelry market by offering classic, sexy, and elegant jewelry that is still affordable fashion. Steele, Gadbois, and Millar have built their company with the entrepreneur in mind; focusing on the ever-changing business world, bamboopink by JudeFrances was created to foster financial freedom in today’s volatile economy.
According to the Direct Selling Association (www.dsa.org), in 2009 the direct selling industry did an estimated $28.33 billion in sales and had an estimated 16.1 million sales people. Millar states, “In the past year alone there has been close to $700 million in direct sales jewelry company acquisitions by Fortune 500 companies and investors that see the jewelry arena as an important element in the direct selling market.” According to Steele, “bamboopink will operate on the direct selling model but will offer several unique advantages. Our consultants will build their ‘power teams’ and hold ‘trunk shows’ to showcase the jewelry, start selling, and generate income.” bamboopink realizes the desire, and the need in today’s economy, to be their own boss and work flexible hours. Bamboopink will offer one of the most generous compensation plans in the industry, and will arm consultants with state-of-the-art technology, including mobile applications for the iPhone, iPad, Windows 7 and Droid operating systems. The revolutionary ‘virtual trunk show’ will give the consultants the ability to do business any time at the push of the button.
The product is designed by Frances Gadbois and is produced in the same factories that make JudeFrances Jewelry. “I wanted to create beautiful, unique pieces that were accessible to all women,” say Gadbois. The collection starts at $29 and is composed of a myriad of earrings, on-trend bangles and stackable rings, and collectable pendants and chain necklaces which will make bamboopink the most versatile fashion jewelry collection around. At bamboopink, the goal is to empower individuals to fashion their own path to success.
