  • Been Making Earrings For a Change - Like Them?

    Hello everyone.

    I've widened my charm jewellery range to earrings as well s bracelets and I'm just wondering if you think they look good?

    Anyone been making anything new/different this week too?

    I really love the ladybird ones - favourited them!
    I make earrings mainly but this week I've been asked by someone to make a bracelet so it's sort of a role reversal

            Ooh, very cute!

            I've been experimenting with twisting and bending eye pins (just until my wire shows up from ebay). I've stuck to beading before that, but I'm getting some really interesting effects. I'll start a gallery and show some off in a few days when I've had chance to take pictures.
            Exercise is a bad word. Every time I hear it I have to wash my mouth with chocolate.

              You'll have to link me to that gallery, I'd love some inspiration!
              Thank you everyone.

                  Thank you.

                  I have a few sets on Etsy of bracelet, earring and necklace combinations. No sales of them yet, but we'll see. . .

                      Thank you so much. I just don't really seem to be selling though.
                      Any idea why?

                        I don't know - from what I've seen of other handmade jewellery shops online, yours seems to be great value. Are you getting enough exposure? Are you still selling on ebay - it doesn't look like your ebay link works. Do you do craft shows and, if so, do you do better there than online?

                          I've just joined CraftJuice to try and get myself out there a little bit, but other than that I'm a bit stumped on how to direct people to my site without paying for the exposure.
                          I no longer really sell jewellery on eBay as they were selling for the minimum 99p bid. I am however selling handmade Fimo clay beads on there, which are having a lot more views.
                          Craft shows are great, but now my Mother works full time, so it's much harder for me to get to them - I have a lot of rubbish to take!

                            It seems the marketplace, for selling in general and particularly for handmade jewellery etc, is swamped and it's ever harder to get a look in even if you're offering a better product or better value! I've had a bit of experience in marketing and am hoping that what I've picked up will stand me in good stead for my own venture. My advice to you would be to look for a niche area to spe******e in. Pick something that you know something about, have a passion for or have links/contacts to if possible, then research whether that market is saturated or whether there's an opportunity there for you. For example, I don't know anything about the jewellery situation but if I were put on the spot I'd pick a theme of 'horses'. Then I'd check out the usual online shops for what horse-related jewellery there is and, if the market isn't as overloaded as other areas, think of what I could do that was different and better than is already available. Then I'd target horse and riding related forums, magazines, groups, societies, clubs etc. A good way of getting your products seen is to write a letter or an email to whoever is in charge of the group or society saying you think you have something that may be of interest to its members, having researched that particular group and give a couple of reasons why you think it may be of interest/advantage to them. Attach a 'press release' that you can write yourself, just google for a template, it only has to be a couple of short paragraphs, that includes a bit about you, your company etc. It would be even better if you can offer to send to larger groups an item or two for them to assess and review in their next newsletter (shouldn't break the bank and is probably a lot cheaper than paying for advertising space). I did this when I worked in marketing for a local book publisher and it got good results!
