Jewelry niche markets give you the advantage of having less competition in a crowded jewelry field.
I started off making jewelry for children.
My one-of-a-kind custom children’s bracelets gave me a jewelry niche market that led me into a show where I might not be considered otherwise, because of the other jewelry artists.
I continued on into making wedding jewelry, and then using semi precious stones. To complement, of course, there were earrings, bracelets, watches, bookmarks, tea infusers, pendants, and even children’s hair accessories!
When I started to think of what I hadn’t yet done, I thought of belts!
Had I really been wearing the same belt for over 10 years?! It was the kind of belt that was woven, so it didn’t matter if my waistline had expanded or not.
I now have found the perfect solution for all those extra beads that never find their way back into the bead box. No bead ever goes wasted.
The belt buckle! This is a perfect way to make one-of-a-kind creations for a niche jewelry market, and use those beads up at the same time!
It’s been a wonderful adventure, and continues to add to my one-of-a-kind jewelry niches.
Perhaps the next adventure will be to use these extra beads in brooches!
I feel it’s important to keep up with new products to educate the customer, ie. argentium silver and the benefits of it, and this can help you in your own jewelry niche markets.
