Are you new to jewelry making? Have you been making jewelry steadily as a hobby and have amassed quite a number of items and need something to do with them? Consider selling your handmade jewelry using any number of online vendors. There are plenty of options now a days to market your goods to reach a wide audience of consumers. Many sites allow you to set up your online store as you’d like it to appear provided you use a template. Then it is usually a matter of paying a listing fee on a per-item basis. Generally these costs are low for you, the entrepreneur. The key to having your jewelry noticed is to take clear photos of your work with no distracting backgrounds. If your items look good on camera people will assume they will also look good on them.
Also, do not display repeats of the same item. Show a variety of your handy-work to entice and excite the buyer about your products.
If you don’t want to sell your jewelry online think about renting a booth at a local craft fair or flea market and selling your work in person. This will allow potential buyers to try your jewelry on before making the decision to purchase, which many times can be a selling point.
Whatever you do, try not to become stagnant with your jewelry making. Consistency is good, but customers also like to see your growth as an artisan and appreciate new ideas and a flow of creativity. If you always make and sell the same handmade jewelry there will not be much of a reason for buyers to return.
If you need fresh ideas for your handmade jewelry take some time to research online tutorials for new techniques you may not have previously known about. In doing this you will not only keep your customers coming back, but you will also keep yourself from tiring of making the same jewelry items day in and day out. Artists get burnt out just like anyone else, but it is usually from a lack of inspiration. Keep yourself engaged in your work and you will have no trouble finding a market in which to sell it.
