Hey Ladies and boys!
I am getting more and more requests from stylists, models and photographers who want to borrow my jewellery for various projects and shoots. Until now I have just trusted them to get the stuff back ASAP but some people really take their time, and I cannot always wait.
So my question is, do anyone of you have any good template for a Loan agreement? Or what is the essential things I should include if I make my own?

I think what you're looking for is a pull letter or something similar. See here. Under the definition of pull letter you'll find a couple of links which might be helpful.

Well, seems like pull letter is more of a letter the stylist brings to the pr-agency to show that they are vouched for, that they are working for a real project.
Usually I am contacted by a stylist or team. They show me mood boards call sheets and whatnot. I can spot pretty quickly if I trust them or not due to their level of professionalism and their work. What I need is a contract for the stylist or person who come to my studio and pick up the stuff, that they take legal responsibility for the stuff they borrow, and give them back in time. Because I noticed if I don't, some people will just take all the time in the world, and its frustrating when I have alot of people waiting
Should be a list of the pieces they borrow and their prices I guess, a timeframe for how long they are allowed to keep them, their contact info and so on.. Sounds reasonable?!
I signed something like this a few times when I borrowed stuff, but I cannot remember exactly what they said, because now its a few years ago..

There is a great jewellery maker I'm borrowing bling from for a future shoot and I have agreed to either leave a deposit or my card details. Which is fair enough
Asking for a deposit and getting them to sign a little contract which explains time frames etc seems reasonable and covers you both should there be a misunderstanding.

Definitely get a deposit and create a contract outlining the terms (timeline, care, shipment, etc). Pro stylists have high-limit credit cards for a reason!
