There are many ways to get inspiration when creating your jewelry. You can get inspired by animals, wildlife, nature, and also the great painters’ paintings. Finding a niche that draws your customers’ attention is the way to go. There are so many different materials you can use when making your handcrafted jewelry, Deciding on the materials metal, stone, wire, beads, and shells that you are more comfortable with and you are more skilled is a good idea. Always keep in mind that customers have perceived value in their minds. If your jewelry creations are unique that they have not seen everywhere, good quality, and reasonable price then you have created great selling handmade jewelry.

Especially in summer, shows tend to attract people who are looking for lower price points. For these times, it is important to have a diversified price range. If, in general, your jewelry is elaborate and high priced, you need to also create some lower-priced earrings and bracelets. This diversification will ensure that every show is a good show.
