  • Can anyone give me some feedback please...

    Hi everyone,

    I was just wandering if anyone could take a look at my beady bits and give me a bit of feedback, have just started out and could do with some, friends are all very positive but as you all know friends can sometimes be a little biased. Many thanks xx

    Well I think they are fantastic and might consider treating myself when my birthday comes along...well done for some beautiful beading.

    Oh and no I dont think that your friends and family are biased ....lol
    they just recognise quality when they see it

      Really like the wine glass charms - especially the christmas ones. Your stuff looks really good - plenty of variety too.

        Your stuff is lovely! Very pretty and well made too. Should be great for the Xmas market - wish you lots of luck.

          I think your stuff is lovely and very salable, the colour combinations you use are very pretty, are you doing any craft fairs or just selling online? have you talked your any of your friends into doing a jewellery party? I think you should if you haven't already.

            I agree, I think your jewellery is good. I particularly the wine bottle necklace.

            And I think Nicola's suggestion of jewellery parties is a good one. They seem to be a good place to sell.

              Thanks so much for the comments, tbh didn't expect such good feedback. I haven't done any fairs or anything, but just had a leaflet through the door for a local table top sale. Will definately consider it. Would love to do a jewellery party but not quite sure how to go about it any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks again xx

                  You have some lovely things there. Just be careful of a table top sale, I have done a couple and it was like an indoor car boot, nothing wrong with that except everybody wanted to pay 10p for eveything and all I sold was one pair of earrings for £2 to another stall holder. The only time I have ever made a loss. Jewellery parties - now thats a different story, loads of women, a few glasses of wine, lots of gossip and they have gone there with the intention of buying things. I have taken well into the hundreds of pounds on one night and I know other jewellery makers have too. Good luck, Selina

                    i wouldn't normally do a table top sale, but I live in a forces community (hubbie is in the army) and it is being run by the wives commitee so will give all the other wives chance to see my beady bits. all the money for the tables is going to our own community so it's not really a loss. Am defo gonna look into the party idea.

                      I'm doing my first jewellery party sometime next month, so have been reading what everyone else does, from what I can tell it can be as laid back as you want, some tips I've picked up are.... display your jewellery in a different room to where everyone will start off, so they don't feel you're in thier face and going to hard sell straight away, let everyone get a drink and have a chat, then introduce yourself, tell your jewellery is on display in the lounge/dining room/kitchen etc and they're welcome to have a browse, pick things up and try on etc (though ask them not to try on earrings for pierced ears). tell them a bit about yourself and why you started making jewellery. Tell them about the materials you use and what you can do by way of changing colours, styles etc and that you can take orders. Thyen just let them go and look at your stuff when they are ready to. Tell them you'll be mingling but they can come and ask you any questions etc.

                      I've heard it's a good idea to take a mirror, so people can see what stuff looks like on them. Take some business cards (get free ones from vistaprint) and leave theses on the table for people to pick up, be sure to give one to anyone who places an order or buys anything. Make sure you have change in case people want to buy anything.

                      Some people take a folder of pictures of other stuff they've done, especially stuff you've already sold, for people to browse through and might get you more orders.

                      If you want to do more parties it might be worth considering offering an incentive for hosting a party, some people offer the host a free piece of jewellery of their choice, some offer 10% of the sales made. So you might get some people there to host their own party.

                      Oh also take your pliers and some findings with you in case anyone wants anything adjusting to fit and you can do it there and then.

                      Think that's all the tips I've picked up so far.....

                            hiya

                            your items really are very pretty and are really nicely packaged. I think that's important especially when it gets to this time of year and people are thinking about buying for xmas.

                            I would also think about displaying some of your items on glass tiles or mirrors, i've seen this at fairs and it always makes the jewellery stand out.

                            good luck with your sales.
