Selling Beads vs. Selling Finished Jewelry?

Selling Beads vs. Selling Finished Jewelry - discussion on Jewelry Making Journal

I am just starting out in trying to make money off of my creations.

I hand sculpt polymer clay beads and then use hemp cording to create necklaces and bracelets.

The issue is I’m not very good when it comes to turning the beads and cord in jewelry. I’m sure with more practice my techniques will improve.

But my question is:

Could I just sell the beads without turning them into jewelry? Or is it better to turn the beads into jewelry and sell the finished jewelry?

If you’ve had a similar experience, what did you do – and what was the result?
