Purse Charms

What could I do to set myself apart from other jewelry makers who are all competing for the same spots in holiday craft fairs this season?

Purse Charms

I trolled Pinterest to find items I could make with gemstones/wire etc that weren’t necessarily wearable jewelry but that I could add to my list of items for sale.

Something extra to set myself apart from the others.

Then one day I saw some posts for purse charms on Pinterest…BINGO!

And so the adventure began. I created ones like the picture I attached with gemstones/crystals/silver beads on 20 gauge wire with oversized lobster clasps roughly 3 inches long.

They are sturdy but pretty. Perfect for banging around on the outside of a purse or backpack.

Showed them at work and have already sold several. 🙂 I think I’m onto something here!
