Can Selling Handcrafted Jewelry Pay?
Whether you're a weekend dabbler or a full-time jewelry designer, there's money to be made from your skills. The secret to your success? Believe in your product, have a professional attitude toward your work, and learn to organize every business aspect of your craft.
The markets are many and hungry for originality, quality, and utility, not only for handcrafted, but for the artisan's insight and imagination. The most complicating factor is that, though there are many talented and highly motivated artisans, they lack business know-how in successfully marketing their works and operating a home jewelry business.
Many jewelry designers have failed in the craft business because they have been unable, or unwilling, to deal with the realities of the business world. Therefore, it is important for you to not only learn more about effective ways to sell your products, but also how to manage your business—no matter what stage you have already reached.
Knowledge of all the requirements to start a home jewelry business is necessary, as well as being sure that these requirements are fulfilled before venturing into the business on a full-time basis. Like any business, to be profitable you must have some knowledge of Operations (production, identifying a marketable product, pricing for profits, ordering of stock and supplies, preparing promotional materials, building a portfolio, etc), Marketing (distribution outlets including craft shows, selling on consignment, wholesale, web orders, setting up a designing an effective display, boothmanship, advertising and other marketing strategies, etc), and Managing a Business (preparing a business plan, the paper work, bookkeeping, sales and tax reports, legal matters, getting help, etc.)
