Great Resources for Jewelry Artists


I'm posting some great jewelry business (or any small business, actually) resources here today because we could all use some help and guidance. With my thought that "There's enough for everyone" and because I believe that "what goes around comes around", being helpful just comes naturally for me, so I hope this information and these sites are able to help all my fellow jewelry artists (and anyone else, too!) out there!


The Home Jewelry Business Success Tips website and blog by Rena Klingenberg. This site, and her blog, are invaluable in helping with social networking/marketing, jewelry show participation, packaging, tips and tricks to selling your jewelry - everything!


Jewelry Marketing by David Weiman - The #1 Source for Handcrafted Jewerly Makers. David walks you through all the aspects of marketing your jewelry, the psychology of it, the pricing, the how's and why's - you name it, he's got your answers!


Art Biz Blog - For The Business of Being An Artist. This blog helps you with social networking sites like facebook, twitter, etc. and has some great insight into being an artist in the business world - packed with helpful knowledge!


Okay - there's a lot to focus on here, so that's it for today. There's tons more and each month I'll post a few more sites full of information that can help you build your business, brand yourself as an expert and keep you sane in the midst of ever changing technology and times!!


Until next time,

Peace, Love and Good Business Baby!!

Cheers,

  1. Thanks for the mention! There is a huge amount of material out there for jewelry makers who want to get their work into the hands of others (and share the love) by learning how to market and advertise more effectively. Thanks for spreading the word, Shel!

  2. Shel: I'm sorry it has taken me so long to find this. Vacation got in the way. But I truly appreciate the mention and I'm thrilled to be in such esteemed company. Mostly, I'm happy that you've found value in my blog.

  3. Hi Shel,

    Thank you so much for including me in your post here! I'm always honored and delighted to publish all the varied, fascinating, and wonderful things everyone contributes to my websites.

    It's very inspiring to me, too, to discover the endlessly creative ways other jewelry artists market their work and build their businesses.

    Thanks again for the shout-out! :o)
