How Can I Get Someone to Host My First Jewelry Party ?

Hi, my name is Kimberly and I love to make jewelry of all types. I have a small business called Kimberly’s Kreations and I have been selling now for almost 3 years.
I still have a full time job, so this takes up a lot of my spare time.
In this time I have sold a few pieces online, a few to the ladies at my dentist office, and most at a flea market type setting.
I have had several people tell me I should do home parties, but I can’t get anyone interested in actually hosting one.
I am in a quandary, my family and best friend love my pieces but they don’t wear jewelry, so I can’t look to them to help me get started. I keep thinking if I can have that first party, I can get the ball rolling with referrals.
I would love your thoughts and input on how and where to break into this way of selling my handmade jewelry. I thoroughly enjoy making new pieces, but I am so discouraged lately that I can’t find the motivation to make anything new, just for it to just sit in my inventory case.
