2010: Handmade Jewelry Sets Your Store Apart
Handmade jewelry is more than a trend. It is an opportunity to give
customers a unique one-of-a-kind piece that is guaranteed not to be on
the wrist of their neighbor by next week. It gives you the chance to
offer a niche' item that is sure to please whether it is made by you or
purchased for resale. More and more handmade artists are creating works
art that exciting store owners and website visitors.
Handmade jewelry can include lampworked glass, kiln slumped glass,
metals, polymer clay beads and carved wood and bone. They can include
wrapped gemstones, gold and silver smithing and even recycled eco
No matter what kind medium the materials are worked in, it is a great
for stores and consumers that's unique and attractive.
Handmade jewelry artists have the freedom to create anything the see in
minds! A friend of mine at etsy.com/smallbookcompany creates tiny paper
earrings that look like novels. My friend Mei Pak of Tiny Hands creates
little earrings that look like cupcakes and hot dogs. This is the kind
that store owners just can't find from imports and resell lines. But
advertise those special little items to their customers, it
them apart from the rest of the local pack.
I sold lampworked nautical jewelry for years...dolphins, sea turtles,
and sharks. The entire aspect of presenting a handmade line to my
customers thrilled them to death. In the midst of tons of imported
were happy to have a unique and individual addition to their stores.
