Halloween is my favorite time of year, not only because of the free candy but because it means Christmas is coming. To most people that means running from mall to mall trying to find the most unique gifts for all the people on their Christmas gift list, to me it is the best time of year to sell handmade jewelry and unique gifts.
If you make handcrafted jewelry this is the time of year you have been waiting for. Whether your business is in the real world or on the internet it is not too late to take advantage of the Christmas season.
Your local mall is probably the best place to start, many malls will let local artisans set up a kiosk to sell their handmade jewelry and gifts at reasonable rental rates for the Christmas season. The holidays are the best time to sell your handmade earrings and handmade bracelets. It is also great advertising for the rest of the year as well so make sure to include your card with every purchase.
Selling unique jewelry pieces at craft shows, art and craft fairs and festivals could be one of the ways to sell. At Christmas time there are many local shows where you can display your handcrafted jewelry. When first starting to sell handmade jewelry at craft shows you will meet thousands of new targeted customers. You can be very successful in generating not only cash flow, but also in inspiring your creativity. Testing your handmade earrings and handmade bracelets designs at craft fairs will ensure that all your jewelry designs sell well. Doing craft shows can be a great learning experience to know what retail jewelry customers are looking for.
Trunk shows and home parties are another great way of selling handmade jewelry for Christmas gifts. If you have a large social circle and a selling personality this could be just the market for you. Copper Reflections have many customers who started by selling to their friends and co-workers, gradually growing and re-investing the profit until their hobby turned into a successful handmade jewelry business.
Many people have been selling their handmade jewelry at wholesale jewelry prices to retail gift shops, gift stores and trading posts. Especially the gift stores that focus on more unique handcrafted jewelry and handmade gifts can do very well. Although your profit is not as high when you sell wholesale jewelry, the quantities are much higher and in the long run your business will be much stronger. Instead of selling retail at 30 shows a year, you will have hundreds of stores selling your jewelry year round.
Selling handmade jewelry and gifts has never been easier online with websites such as Etsy or E-bay. There are a wide range of sites specifically aimed at the handcrafted jewelry market. These sites take the work out of your own independent website with many perks of being involved in a community website.
In order to succeed you must be aware of the importance of high quality, reasonable handmade jewelry and/or wholesale jewelry prices and the most unique jewelry. You would know that when all these conditions are realized in real life the business becomes success. This, of course, goes for all kinds of business, not only handmade jewelry, handcrafted jewelry and wholesale jewelry business. You should always give the exclusive rights to your wholesale jewelry customers especially for small town gift shops. This will always work well for you, as handmade jewelry suppliers as well as the gift store owners.
A unique piece of handmade jewelry is the perfect fashion accessory to add sophistication and style to your wardrobe. Those people who use handcrafted jewelry to accessorize cannot do without these unique jewelry pieces. Handmade jewelry is available in so many varieties that will make you stand out from the crowd and get you noticed.
You can find handmade jewelry handcrafted in various materials and these variations are being further developed and enhanced continuously. The artisans and craftsmen for handmade jewelry use wide ranges of techniques and metals in creating their unique jewelry earrings and handmade bracelets.
Artisans go beyond the ordinary to extraordinary using their creativity and diverse materials in creating handmade jewelry. It is amazing what beautiful jewelry can be created from these unusual materials so it is little wonder that handcrafted jewelry is more popular today than ever before.
Handmade jewelry has historic and cultural attributes attached to them. Some cultures have their own unique handmade jewelry designs and styles that are traceable only to them. Handmade jewelry by Native American jewelry artisans is famous for their dramatic colors, bold styles and unique Native jewelry designs which can be worn on virtually any occasion. From casual to formal handcrafted jewelry is the perfect choice.
One of the best and most unique gifts you can present to a loved one on a special occasion like bridal shower is handmade jewelry. It could be handcrafted necklace, handmade bracelet, handmade earrings or unique rings. These are gifts that will make your loved one, friend or relative know how much you care.
There are many factors that influence the prices of handmade jewelry but the main consideration is the material used in creating the jewelry. The craftsmanship as well as the brand of a given handmade jewelry item will also influence its price. Handmade jewelry takes a lot of time and attention to details is another reason why they tend to be costly when compared with the mass-produced types. Handcrafted jewelry is a reflection of the soul of the artists and should never be compared to dollar store jewelry.
Dealing directly with handmade jewelry artisans has never been easier with many websites devoted to handcrafted jewelry. There are even many handmade jewelry wholesalers online for stores and shops to find the perfect jewelry style for their customers. Whatever kind of artisan jewelry you are looking for can be found easily and quickly online.
Handmade jewelry is captivating and diverse with wide varieties of crafting techniques, materials and styles available in every price range. The endless diversity of materials involved in making handcrafted jewelry shows that this unique jewelry is in a class of its own. With personal styles, creativity and individuality reflected with every handcrafted piece, handmade jewelry is the perfect unique gift for everyone.
