If you are a creative person, with a great sense of
style and flair, you may be able to start your own
business ? making and selling jewelry wholesale.
Because people are so very unique, they want
jewelry pieces that are unique ? one-of-a-kind
pieces that nobody else in the world owns! This
desire can make you quite a bit of money ?
simply start your very own jewelry wholesale
You can easily order wholesale supplies from
hundreds of companies around the globe online ?
at really low prices. It is important to keep up with
how much each part of each piece of jewelry costs
you, and to get a total cost of each piece, including
any expenses that you had for having supplies
shipped to you. With the total cost figured, you can
easily set your prices by adding 15% to the cost.
You can sell your pieces in a variety of ways. You
can open your own online wholesale jewelry store,
sell to local jewelry stores, rent booths at local flea
markets and fairs, or advertise your jewelry making
skills and take orders for unique pieces. You can
also sell your pieces on consignment at boutiques.
You want to be known for your quality. Always
select the highest quality gems and stones for your
pieces, and make sure that the craftsmanship is
outstanding. Become exclusive, and more people
will want to purchase your pieces ? and never make
any two pieces alike.
However, you can also go the other route and make
hundreds of identical pieces, as they are ordered.
You do this by making one very unique, high quality
piece, and showing it to your local jewelry stores.
Ask them if they would like to order in bulk, then fill
Another option is to do catalog sales. Make enough
pieces to fill a small catalog, and take pictures of
each piece. Write a description for each piece and
then put together your own catalog using software
and a good printer ? or send the work to a print
shop. You can send these catalogs out to a list
that you obtain from a direct mailing list company.
This type of business does require creativity and
skill, but it also requires the ability to market
yourself and your jewelry. You need to have
business cards printed, and also have catalogs and
brochures printed as well to market your jewelry
