Jewelry Business Starter Kit

by Miranda
(Peterborough)

My name is Miranda, I'm 26 years old, I am gearing up to start a jewellery buisness part time to gain some extra income. Being on disability, it has become extremely difficult to pay bills, and live off of a very low fixed income. Since I love crafts and jewellery and am a very ARTSY girl I decided that I could have some fun while making some extra money to be able to go out for a coffee with girlfriends, perhaps dinner, or even buy some nice things for my home :-)


My question is,

How do I start?! Where do I start?! There is sooo much information out there and it's kind of overwhelming..

Is it possible to buy a Beginners Starter kit that includes everything needed?

Something that is cost effective too would be helpful =) Thank-you everyone!! =) I'm excited to start and gain knowledge from the best of the best! =)

Hi Miranda,

I too am on disability on top of being a single mom of three so I know how hard it is to start...I started by reading books, took a couple classes and I made about 10 sets and 25 single jewelery items to show to friends and family and ask their oppinions and some even ended up buying a few items from me...I also made some items for myself to wear in public so if someone liked what I was wearing and commented or asked where I got it I could start up a conversation about making my own jewelery and having items for sale if people would like to see them...I have had a few people ask and look at my items and purchase a few items so it is a start but as for how to market my work I am at a loss because I don't know if doing a web page would be of any benefit and I am trying to get pictures to put a brochure together but I'm not the best photographer either so I still need help trying to get off the ground..

A web page or brochure requires a lot of work.

Inquire at various shops in your area. I consign at convenience, thrift, clothing and specialty shops. I try to find one new store each year.

It saves time to find someone else to sell your jewelry.

To begin, set a limit, such as $100.

Try Ebay. Acrylic beads are as low as .003¢, silver for .01¢, rotating display stands for $12.

Discipline yourself. Don't buy more supplies until you've made a substantial profit with the supplies you already have.

Experiment with the highest possible price first. If things don't sell, decide upon the lowest possible price.

Rotate from one consignment shop to another to determine where things sell best.

It all takes time. Profit may not be seen until after the first year.
