Finding New Opportunities to Sell Your Handmad Jewelry by Maria Hansford  - featured on Jewelry Making Journal

Always keep your eyes open to new opportunities. Always take with you your business cards!

I made a point of always having a bunch of my business cards with me, wherever I go.

This year for Valentine’s Day I went for a dinner and a musical show with my husband.

During the break I noticed that the Centre hosting the event had a showcase with different styles of jewelry and there were many people looking and buying them.

The jewelry were handcrafted pieces from local artists who where getting a lot of publicity displaying at that venue.

I approached the person in charge of the Centre Showcase and introduced myself. I gave her my business card and we set a date for an appointment to show her my creations.

I was delighted when she told me she liked my work and offered me to display and sell my jewelry at that prestigious place.

It’s true you never know when an opportunity will present itself! I picked up two potential customers when I went to the dentist yesterday while “test driving”one of my new necklace designs – when some of the dental staff commented on it I made sure to give out some of my new business cards that feature various photos of my designs. I always try to wear at least one piece of my own jewelry every day and also be sure I have cards in my purse so they’re handy to give out – just in case!

That’s fantastic! In the right place at the right time!

I must remind myself to get some cards into my bag when I plan on going out.

I too like to wear samples of my creations sometimes also. Sunday I got an order from wearing such a piece. Was I ever so excited because she was much younger than me and I’d desiged a piece that a someone from the younger generation adored! Best wishes to all.
