Getting Requests for My Jewelry, but Not Sure Where to Start My Business

Getting Requests for My Jewelry, but Not Sure Where to Start My Business - Jewelry Making Journal

I am working on starting a jewelry business. I am terrified!

I finally know what to do with my life, but I’m a little intimidated.

My background is art. I got into jewelry making a little over a year ago and although I am relatively inexperienced I seem to receive a lot of compliments and requests for my jewelry.

I’ve sold a few custom orders and I am working refining some of my designs.

The things that I am struggling with are:

  • Cost, how do you determine how much it is you really need?
  • How many pieces do you sale to begin with? I make earrings, necklaces, and bracelets.
  • When is a good time to actually register your company’s name, and get a tax id?

I want to get started on selling jewelry as soon as I can, but I prefer to do this right because I want to be able to work at this full time and run my own business.

  1. Rena has so many articles on her site that would answer these questions. Use the search box to look, or consider one of her great books: Easy Ways to Sell Your Jewelry Every Day or Ultimate Guide to Your Profitable Jewelry Booth. I love the unique and creative ideas Rena has, and most of them are so easy to use.

  2. Thank you for your recommendations of my books, Connie!

    And Jasmine, you’ll find most of the info you’re looking for in these posts:

    Wishing you all the best with your new jewelry business – and let us know how you do with it! 🙂

  3. Good for you, Jasmine! I’m a newbie as well in selling jewelry, and this newsletter is so helpful. My passion is bead embroidery (so I really appreciate Rena’s article on profiting from time consuming pieces). I started out selling at a local yoga center (60/40 split) and have done a couple of craft fairs. I found that I needed to expand to include earrings, stretch bracelets, etc. as they sell much better than beaded cuffs. I hope to someday reduce hours at my regular job, get Rena’s book on starting a jewelry making business, and really make a go of it. Good luck to you!
